Formula E CEO, Jeff Dodds, to donate $250,000 to charity if Verstappen DOESN’T win

23 Feb 2024
  • Who Will Secure the Championship and Choose the Charity?

TNT Sports has aired an interview between Jeff Dodds, CEO of Formula E, and Jermaine Jenas, Formula E’s Lead Presenter and former pro footballer, in which the former makes a huge statement on how predictable Formula 1 has become… a statement worth $250,000.

Wager of the Year

Wager of the Year

At the end of the interview, when discussing wider motorsport predictions, Jeff makes the wager of the year, stating: “If any one of the other 19 drivers win it, we’ll give a quarter of a million dollars to the charity of choice of the driver that does win it”

The proclamation aims to highlight the unpredictability of Formula E - especially when compared to F1 - and make a substantial donation to a charitable cause. As you may know, in Formula E, every season (with the exception of Jean-Éric Vergne’s double crown) a different driver has won the World Championship. So far, Season 10 has proven no different, with three different drivers, all from different teams being crowned champions of the first three races.

New Aston Martin GT3 secures historic victory in the Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa

Aston Martin has recorded a glorious overall victory in the Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa – the world’s most prestigious all-GT3 24 hour race which took place at Spa-Francorchamps, in Belgium, over 29-30 June weekend. The win, claimed by Aston Martin partner team Comtoyou Racing, and works drivers Mattia Drudi (ITA), Marco Sørensen (DEN) and Nicki Thiim (DEN), was the first for the British ultra-luxury sportscar brand since 1948. The result also marked a maiden 24-hour triumph for the new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and was the first time the famous Wings had beaten its major competition in the Belgian endurance classic since it became an-all GT event in 2001.
