The ultimate on-water racing venture, the E1 Series, aims to help improve the health of the seas and oceans while establishing a highly competitive new sporting competition and developing new sustainable technologies.
Alejandro Agag, Co-Founder and Chairman of the UIM E1 World Championship, spoke about the most recent athlete to join the series: “It’s great to welcome Tom Brady to the UIM E1 World Championship. Tom is a winner and will bring his incredible spirit to our races.
“Alongside Rafael Nadal, Didier Drogba, Sergio Perez, and other big names that we will announce soon, he will be fighting for victory at every race. To have a personality like Tom is a huge boost for the UIM E1 World Championship.”
The Spanish entrepreneur has made innovation a personal trademark; in 2014, alongside former FIA president Jean Todt, he launched the revolutionary all-electric single-seater racing series that in 2020 became a World Championship.

E1 Series Co-Founder & CEO Rodi Basso, a renowned Italian engineer, shared Agag’s vision which led them to embark on the odyssey of electrifying water mobility, bearing in mind to leave a positive impact on the locations where the series will compete.
