Extreme E has revealed its calendar for the upcoming 2024 season, as the electric off-road racing championship gears up for its fourth campaign.
Extreme E’s latest instalment will kick off on the sands of Saudi Arabia once again, as the new season opens against a stunning desert backdrop on 17-18 February for Rounds 1 and 2 at a new location near Jeddah.
The championship’s next three X Prix will take place across Europe, with the location of Rounds 3 and 4 on 13-14 July to be announced in the new year.
The series will then play host to back-to-back rounds in Sardinia in September, which has become a firm fixture on the Extreme E calendar and an ever-present since its inception in 2021. Extreme E will return to the Italian island for Rounds 5 and 6, and 7 and 8 of the 2024 campaign for what promises to be another thrilling spectacle in the Mediterranean, co-organised and coordinated by the Automobile Club d’Italia and Regione Sardegna.
The Sardinian rounds will also be the setting for demonstration and testing of the Extreme H cars ahead of their full debut in 2025. Extreme H will be the world’s first off-road racing series to be powered by hydrogen, with preparations well underway ahead of the championship’s launch in just over a year’s time.
The conclusion of Season 4 will take place in Phoenix, Arizona, in late November, as the championship makes its historic debut in the USA.
Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E, said: “We are delighted to unveil our calendar for Extreme E Season 4. If the 2024 campaign is anything like our first three, then our fans are going to be in for something special.
“We are looking forward to returning to Saudi Arabia for the opening rounds of the new season. Saudi Arabia has always delivered a thrilling spectacle on track, and we are expecting more of the same in February at an exciting new location near Jeddah.
“The location of our European race in July will be announced soon. While we continue a dedicated testing programme of the new Extreme H car, holding spectacular races across the European continent during the middle leg of the season is important for streamlining our operations, and so we are excited to return to Sardinia in September. I would like to thank the Automobile Club d’Italia and Regione Sardegna for their unwavering support for our series, and a double-header on the Italian island is a prospect we are all looking forward to. Sardinia is also likely to be the setting of the Extreme H car’s first public laps on an off-road race course, which will be an historic moment for motorsport and hydrogen power.
