Projekt E will run as a support series at selected FIA World Rallycross Championship events next year.
STARD's 612hp 4WD all-electric three-motor Projekt E Ford Fiesta electRX car will be driven by Romanian television star and national racing driver Dani Otil in the "CN Super Rally" City Racing Series, in Bucharest, Romania this weekend, as the Austrian outfit targets an overall victory.
The Fiesta electRX car will compete against Hillclimb, circuit racing and rally elite cars, which all mostly use internal combustion engines.
“We have developed the all-electric #REVelution powertrain system to be able to run in virtually any type of racing genre," said Michael Sakowicz, Founder & CEO STARD.
"The city center of Bucharest is the perfect place to further test and start to showcase the versatility of our powertrain system. There we will compete in a city racecourse against all sorts of race cars from the circuit, over Hillclimb to rally cars."
"We believe to have developed the most affordable and most flexible EV motorsport powertrain system on the market. On top of that, we are immediately enabling the use of OEM electric powertrain technology straight away. This is worldwide unique!"
"Throughout the next months, we will demonstrate this at various opportunities, in many different ways. We´re just getting started," he adds.
In Romania, STARD will use the same specification powertrain as supplied to Projekt E, the world´s first all-electric rallycross series starting from 2020.
