Virat Kohli Joins E1

Indian cricket superstar Virat Kohli has ventured into the world of eco-friendly motorsports as the latest celebrity team owner in the E1 World Championship. Kohli joins the likes of Rafa Nadal, Tom Brady, Didier Drogba, and Sergio Perez in this groundbreaking all-electric powerboat racing series.

The UIM E1 World Championship is the newest addition to eco-conscious motorsports, following in the footsteps of Formula E and Extreme E. The championship is set to debut in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, next year.

Kohli, known for his cricket prowess, and sports tech entrepreneur Adi K Mishra will lead “The Blue Rising” team, a brainchild of Alejandro Agag, the founder of Formula E and Extreme E.

This move reflects a growing trend of celebrities and athletes promoting sustainability. The transition to electric powerboats is a significant step towards reducing the carbon footprint of motorsports and aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.

The E1 World Championship promises thrilling action on the water and serves as a platform for clean energy technologies and environmental awareness.
