British Esports-turned-real-world team Veloce Racing emerged from the mud and turmoil all smiles, as the electric-powered off-road Extreme E series raced in Scotland for the first time last weekend. On a challenging course based in the former Glenmuckloch coal mine in Dumfries and Galloway, Lewis Hamilton’s X44 squad inherited victory in the third round of 2023 on Saturday. But it was all about Veloce in round four the following day, on a weekend of chaotic action in increasingly poor weather for the suitably named Hydro X Prix.
