British Superbikes: Record grids for 2022 but what’s next?

Carlo Boutagy is the Promoter of the Diriyah E-Prix, the opening round of the Formula E season as well as the Extreme E season-opener in Saudi Arabia.

This weekend sees the fourth running of the Diriyah ePrix - it was first held as part of the 2018/19 season and was the first Formula E race to be held in the Middle East.
