Tiff Needell heads to the PS Racing Circuit, Greinbach in Austria with IMG to test out the world’s first ever electric Rallycross car. Projekt E will run as a support series at selected WRX events in 2020 using technology developed by STARD, with CEO Michael Sakowicz and Manfred Stohl.
This car, the first Projekt E, is using a Ford Fiesta body shell, similar to the one run by STARD in WRX, but it’s possible for owners to have the choice of several makes and models. Tiff Needell is joined by world class rally driver Francois Delecour for a first drive and behind the scenes of an EV that can do zero to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds!
Faster than an F1 car, and faster than a Tesla Roadster! (Ok, so this is a stripped out race car and the Tesla Roadster is a road car… but you get the point!)
