Charley Boorman, a modern-day adventurer, travel writer and entertainer, has become an 80 Day Race ambassador. The 48-year-old is best known for the television series ‘Long Way Round’ in which he travelled from London to New York on motorbikes together with actor Ewan McGregor. Boorman shares his passion of adventure with 80 Day Race, a sustainable global race around the world starting in Paris.

“The fun part of 80 Day Race is that people are going to see all those different countries and cultures. It’s a great push for people to get out and see the world. Everybody should do that,” believes Boorman. “It’s a great challenge to go around the world in 80 days, especially with an electric vehicle that they’ve chosen or developed. That’s very cool. This way the environmental issue will be addressed perfectly. 80 Day Race will certainly help develop e-mobility and to show people that electric is a viable means of transport.”
