Sardinia marks Extreme E’s first European destination and will take place in the Army Training area at Capo Teulad in Sulcis-Iglesiente - an historic area situated in the south-west of the island.
The seven kilometre course will provide a contrasting landscape to the previous three rounds with a harder compact surface and many rocks and bushes to contend with, plus riverbeds that crack due to the heat.

Sardinia may not be a remote location like our other destinations, but climate change issues are still affecting the region. It is becoming increasingly noticeable in all environments which are suffering from rising temperatures, heatwaves and wildfires.
Extreme E will work with local NGOs to support the forest restoration efforts in the Oristanese area and beyond that fell victim to extensive damage, therefore enhancing green carbon stores. In addition focus will be put on seagrasses - an ecosystem that sequesters even more carbon dioxide and is equally threatened.
