Veloce Racing's new signing Kevin Hansen achieved an impressive run of four podiums from his four appearances in the inaugural Extreme E season while driving for JBXE.
Hansen took over from former Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button to partner Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky, and the Swedish pairing finished third in the Season 1 standings. The Scandinavian star carried this mantle into Extreme E Season 2 with another podium, competing alongside Veloce Development Driver Hedda Hosås, who joined Button’s outfit in Sardinia.
Hansen has also been a fixture in off-road racing for several years through his efforts in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. The Swede has secured event wins and multiple podiums and currently sits fourth in this year’s standings for HANSEN World RX Team. His highest FIA World Rallycross Championship finish was third in 2019, the season in which he secured his maiden victory in the series.
Molly Taylor brings invaluable expertise to Veloce Racing’s Extreme E efforts, after claiming the title in the championship’s inaugural season. The Australian helped secure three victories for RXR and returns to Extreme E with the knowledge, drive and experience that comes with winning the series.
Taylor grew up in a motorsport family, with Molly’s mother Coral a four-time Australian Rally Champion co-driver. She became the first female to achieve a podium position in Junior WRC history, finishing third in the 2014 Rally Finland.
After success abroad, Taylor became the first female driver, and youngest at the time, to win the Australian Rally Championship with Subaru in 2016. In early 2022 Taylor became the first Australian woman to drive the gruelling Dakar rally and will now continue her impressive career with Veloce Racing.
