IMG and STARD (Stohl Advanced Research and Development), partners in the Projekt E electric support series, have reconfirmed their intention for the Projekt E racing programme to proceed in 2020.
 


While the 2020 FIA World Rallycross Championship calendar is undergoing change due to government health directives amid COVID-19, the objective is to stage five Projekt E events at selected European rounds of World RX in 2020. Further details on the final calendar of Projekt E events will be released in due course.



Michael Sakowicz, CEO and Founder of STARD,
confirmed that a number of powertrain kits have been delivered and that the production of kits and the building of Projekt E racecars is ongoing.
 


"The absolute priority is that everybody stays healthy in these difficult times. Since the delivery of the first Projekt E Ford Fiesta to Holten Motorsport in November, we have built further cars and continue to do so. We are looking forward to the Projekt E cars competing against each other when circumstances allow," Sakowicz said.



Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of Motorsports Events at IMG, the promoter of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, added:
“We are mindful that the world is a different place to what it was when we first launched the Projekt E racecar in Latvia in September last year.



“Our thoughts are with those that have been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. We are continuing to plan for Projekt E racing in 2020 but health and well-being is at the forefront of our decision-making at this stage.”
 


Projekt E is the international series for 450kW fully-electric, four-wheel drive cars that will run at selected rounds of the FIA World Rallycross Championship using STARD’s “REVelution” EV powertrain systems.
