Hydro X Prix to run along 2.67-km course in Glenmuckloch

This weekend’s Hydro X Prix will take the Extreme E championship through 2.67 kilometres of the former Glenmuckloch coal mine in Scotland. The length is the shortest in series history, beating out the 2022 Energy X Prix‘s 2.9 km.

The course begins with a run into a righthand turn, from which the track runs through rock and water hazards. While the latter is evident via the race name, there is increased emphasis on water as the mine is intended to be converted into a green energy site powered by water and reservoirs.

The Continental Traction Challenge, or Super Sector, will run along a hairpin and include a jump. As usual, the team with the fastest combined time of their two drivers through the seciton will earn five points.

The second half contains mud hazards before culminating in a downhill.
