2022 FIA World Rallycross Championship

Quote:
...

Rallycross Promoter, the commercial rights holder for the FIA World Rallycross Championship, announced more details regarding the upcoming 2022 World RX season – the first one run with all-electric RX1e cars – yesterday (September 30).

A 14-car grid has been announced for the 2022 FIA World Rallycross Championship, with all cars developed and produced by Austrian company Kreisel Electric in collaboration with Rallycross Promoter and governing body FIA. Kreisel Electric was selected as exclusive supplier of the electrifying kit in October 2019 following a FIA tender process. The mentioned number of 14 cars have been reserved by new and existing teams, the announcement reads. Further details regarding the new and existing teams were not revealed.

...

Green energy recharging will be managed by French company GCK Energy, who was also selected back in 2019 as exclusive supplier of charging power and infrastructure to drive the transition to electric racing in the FIA World Rallycross Championship and FIA RX2e Championship from 2021 to 2024. GCK Energy is making use of a solution comprised of containers and mobile charging points. The containers will arrive at each event fully charged, having collected 900kWh back at base in France through a combination of solar panels and the local green energy network.

The new RX1e car delivers 500kW to the twin motors being the equivalent of 680bhp and is complemented by 880Nm of instant torque, while the battery has been specifically designed for optimum weight distribution. All cars will use the same electric powertrain while bodywork designs and liveries will be different. The RX1e car is supposed to sprint from 0-100km/h in just 1.8 seconds.

The 2021 World RX season currently underway is the very last one in the World championship running with ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cars.

Is this only a electric powertrain kit built in different chassis' or or electric powertrain kit + OMSE (?) chassis with different bodies?

Is fellow Austrian company STARD also using Kreisel electric powertrain?

This suggests it's an electric powertrain + chassis.

Not sure how I feel about this:

World RX - GCK Return in 2022 with Electric Delta Integrale



On the one hand I think it is a really cool homage, but on the other I wonder if it is better to try and give electric cars a new identity rather than copy beloved cars of the past?

Is this more likely to alienate the established fan base or win them over? Answers on a postcard please!

I think it'll add a few more to the anti-EV lot and have a few that really like it. I mean, it's a good looking car IMO but does feel like maybe they should go their own way.

For the life of me I can’t see why they would even contemplate using this, either that have money to waste or just plain stupid. If you was to compete in the inaugural electric series which no doubt will be high profile common sense tells you to use a car from the current crop of manufacturers. This is like turning up at a top 2022 F1 event in a Nigel mansels Williams red 5. What a Farse whoever is there manager advisor must be rubbing his hands together he has conned them has April fools come early?

I think it is because the entry comes from GCK - and they also produce this car (and others) as a resto-mod for general sale.




Also remember that an all-new electric Delta is coming from Lancia in the near future.

New Lancia Delta EV confirmed as brand goes all-electric

'Lancia boss Luca Napolitano said that a new Ypsilon will arrive in 2024 - and confirmed that the fabled Delta will return.
“Everyone wants the Delta, and it can’t be missing from our plans,” Napolitano said. “It will return and it will be a true Delta: an exciting car, a manifesto of progress and technology. And obviously it will be electric.”'

And now also electric versions of Ford RS200 and MG Metro 6R4?

World RX just feels like a brand new championship thanks to COVID, a new promoter and going electric. 2021 has been a write off but I'm not over it yet for WRX. I think electric can be a lot of fun especially as the cars with be more powerful next year

I'm always interested in new series and rallycross so I'm looking forward to seeing what happens. Though I'm still against how much is hidden away behind a paywall. Just release old event highlights again and I'll be happy!

Agree, especially about the paywall.

And having seen coverage of several Nitro events I am convinced it will not replace WRX or European style RX in general.

I think this is a very fair comment, as so many aspects of it have felt quite different this year.

Full agree. I don't think it is has delivered on the hype and, although I am tuning in to NRX, my preference is still WRX (even with the lesser grids this year).
