In 2019, Scheider qualified for the finals in Abu Dhabi and South Africa. The German claimed a fourth-place finish in Silverstone (Great Britain) his best result of the season.
"I am super happy to go straight into my second season with ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport. Last year we expected to be better, which means our expectations for 2020 are even higher," he said.
“We should have been on the podium from time to time last year but this year podiums are a must-have."
"The car has been developed over the winter in different areas, so we hope to have taken 2-3 steps forward. Let’s get the season going to see where we are," he adds.
Scheider will be joined this season by team owner Rene Muennich. Muennich returns to World RX after a one-year hiatus.
"I’m glad to be back in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, joining Timo in our two-car team. Last year the racing in World RX was very competitive and we produced some solid results. We expect the same high level of close racing this season and I am personally looking forward to testing myself against the best drivers in the sport once again," he said.
2020 will be the last year of pure internal combustion engines [ICE] in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. In 2021, the World RX Supercar division will have a combination of ICE [petrol powered cars] and electric cars.
In addition to taking part in the full 2020 campaign, ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport are planning to run electric cars in World Rallycross next year.
"We welcome the plans for the FIA World Rallycross Championship to phase in electrification from 2021 and we are making plans to be part of this exciting future," Dominik Greiner, ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport team manager said.
