CE Dealer Team commits to all-new electric World RX era with two-car entry.

Weeks after hinting at an FIA World Rallycross Championship entry, the Construction Equipment Dealer Team (CE Dealer Team) has today announced a multi-year, two-car entry to the full series ahead of the eagerly-anticipated electric era.

"We are pleased to announce our entry to World RX, which is a perfect fit for the CE Dealer Team and our push for a more sustainable future with our partners," Emil Axelsson, Sporting and Commercial Director, CE Dealer Team, said. "The World RX programme provides us with an excellent activation platform, one where our partners can showcase their innovative products and solutions through the world’s most exciting electric motorsport category."

The Nordic-based squad will be operated by PWR RX, a sister company of the successful Swedish motorsport team PWR Racing. They are set to enter a pair of 680hp electric rallycross cars for two soon-to-be revealed drivers (reveal date - 10 May at 10am CET).

Like World RX, the team is firmly committed to spearheading a sustainable future, both on and off-track. Through its participation in the championship, they aim to drive the shift towards greater diversity and inclusivity, while highlighting the excitement that the move to an electric future offers.

"While World RX is new to us, building and developing fast electric race cars is not. Our extensive racing experience coupled with the vast technical expertise of our industrial partners gives us confidence that our long-term goal of fighting for FIA World Rallycross Championship titles will ultimately be successful," Daniel Haglöf, Co-Founder, CE Dealer Team, said.

"An important additional element of our programme is to drive a change that will see motorsport become more inclusive and diverse. We look forward to announcing further exciting details surrounding these elements soon."

The 2022 World RX season will begin with an official launch at iconic Höljes track on 2-3 July, followed by rounds at the legendary Nürburgring, Hell in Norway, Rīga’s Biķernieku trase, Montalegre in Portugal, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and a yet-to-be-confirmed season finale.
