According to Opel, the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup, the one-make class running the company’s Corsa E-Rally, has established itself in the motorsport landscape and made an important contribution to the future of rallying in Germany after its first full season.
A successful run over seven rounds – three each within the framework of the German Rally Championship and national R70 events in addition to a season opener at the at the Czech round of the European Rally Championship in Zlín – proved the integrity of the revolutionary concept.
“We have shown that electric rallying works”, stated Opel Motorsport director Jörg Schrott. “In order to master the many challenges of such a pioneering project, you need innovative spirit, courage and strong synergies. And we had these thanks to our partners. I would like to emphasise the ADAC, with whom we have been working successfully for many years and who were convinced of the project from the very beginning. Also partners from the very beginning are TotalEnergies and eLoaded. Without the specialists from eLoaded, who developed the charging infrastructure together with us, the professional implementation of the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup would not have been possible.”
