December 14, 2023

Extreme E, the electric off-road racing series, has confirmed an extension of its broadcast deal with ESPN in Latin America.ESPN will air live racing action as well as highlights, magazine, preview and review shows across Latin American countries including Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and Chile in English, Spanish or Portuguese.The championship held its most recent title decider in South America, as the 2023 campaign was concluded deep in the Atacama Desert, Chile, for the Antofagasta Minerals Copper X Prix. In the closest championship fight in Extreme E history, five teams were in with a shot of title glory – with Nico Rosberg’s Rosberg X Racing the victors for their second championship in three seasons.Ali Russell, Managing Director at Extreme E, commented: “ESPN is one of the biggest names in sports broadcasting and I’m delighted they’ll continue to air Extreme E in Latin America. It was fitting that our dramatic Season 3 finale took place in South America – a continent which has huge passion for motorsport, and particularly our championship having raced there for the past two seasons. South America is a very important market for Extreme E and not only do we display wheel-to-wheel racing on-track, but we will continue to leave a long-lasting positive impact through our Legacy Programmes in each destination off it. I am delighted that we will continue to bring our pioneering championship to a huge Latin American audience.”
