The teams are already in NEOM, Saudi Arabia, ready to kick off a new Extreme E season, specifically the third, where an epic battle is expected throughout the 2023 campaign, which will set a precedent by being the longest in history.
Specifically, it will be the longest in terms of races, although it will maintain the same number of venues (five), as the new format of the 100% electric off-road category will put up to 10 races on the table, since two races will be held for each X-Prix.
Thus, everything is ready for the Desert X-Prix to take place from March 11-12, a race that has become customary for the opening of Extreme E. There, new teams, established groups and great drivers will give everything for everything to debut in the best possible way.
