Extreme E headed back to Sardinia for Rounds 5 and 6 of the 2023 season. The Island X Prix held on July 8 to 9, which marked the championship’s return to the Italian island for a third time, was co-organised and coordinated by the Automobile Club d’Italia and Regione Sardegna.

The electric off-road racing series took place in the Italian Army Training area at Capo Teulada in Sulcis-Iglesiente, the route provided a challenging 3-kilometre route featuring rocks, bushes, and dried riverbeds cracked from the intense heat.
