ESmotorsport are pushing ahead with their plans to compete in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship. 

The team are fully confident that they will show strong performances throughout their maiden World RX season.

With experience of competing in the FIA European Rallycross Championship's Super1600 class for several years, Ernestas Staponkus team owner and driver revealed ambitious plans to compete in the highest level of Rallycross with Skoda Fabia RX Supercars.

ESmotorsport have built new a Skoda Fabia RX Supercar for the 2019 season. Staponkus partnered with Thierry Viardot of Viason Sport and Ken Skidmore from Autotek to assist with the building and maintenance of the Supercars throughout the 2019 season.

Nasser Al-Attiyah and Kevin Abbring tested the new Skoda RX Supercar at the Bikernieki Sports Base in Riga in September, so comparisons could be drawn between the new car and the pace of current World RX teams. 

Further tests were conducted with Abbring in recent weeks on asphalt roads in the Czech Republic, with a focus on cooling and brake packages. 

The team are yet to name its driver line-up for the 2019 season

The Lithuanian team expects to be able to fight on the front row in 2020. And, with that in mind the team are forging ahead of a development program in parallel with the 2019 season to improve the cars performance.
