Vote for Andretti United on GridPlay!
Andretti United Extreme E need your help!
Vote for #AUXE via the Extreme E website to help us select our grid position for the inaugural Extreme E final which takes place in Saudi Arabia next week (3-4 April). Voting opens on Wednesday 31 March.
What is it?
GridPlay puts fans at the heart of the action, giving them the opportunity to vote for their favourite driver. Teams with the most votes can select their spot on the starting line for the final race.
How does it work?
Fans vote for their favourite driver and those votes are added together to calculate the team score. The five teams that have qualified for the Final take its percentage of the votes. The four teams that don’t make the Final ‘gift’ their votes to a team of their choice so every vote matters.
The team with the most votes is able to select its grid position for the Final first, followed by the team with the second most votes and so on.
When can you vote?
Voting opens four days before the final and closes one hour after the start of the Crazy Race. For Saudi Arabia, votes can be cast from Wednesday 31 March to 11:00 Saudi Arabia time (09:00 GMT) on Sunday 4 April.
Where can you vote?
Fans can vote for their favourite driver twice per day via the Extreme E website HERE and on Twitter using #GridPlay #DriverName.
For example, to vote for our team on Twitter – you could Tweet #GridPlay #CatieMunnings and #TimmyHansen
When will the winning team be revealed?
Viewers can watch the GridPlay winner selection ceremony live on the Sunday of the X Prix through the broadcast. A full list of global broadcasters is available HERE.
Timmy Hansen, Andretti United driver, said: "Extreme E is always thinking up different and innovative ways of doing things and GridPlay is another excellent example of this. As spectators can't be onsite for the races, GridPlay is a fantastic way of involving the fans and will help provide an exciting spectacle for the TV show too. We hope lots of fans get behind this idea and we can't wait to see how GridPlay shakes up proceedings for our very first race in Saudi Arabia!"
