THE WORLD RALLYCROSS EVOLUTION
In 2020 Rallycross will lead the introduction of high-performance electric race cars in the new Projekt E series. The FIA World Rallycross Championship will introduce full-electric Supercars in 2021, a transitionary season when they will race directly against the existing internal combustion-engined cars (petrol).
Also in 2020, Projekt E will be the leading all-electric support series to the FIA World Rallycross Championship, powered by STARD. World RX, Euro Supercar, Super 1600 and RX2 International Series continue using internal combustion engines.
In 2021, the biggest change since the 2014 start of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, a new breed of full-electric Supercars, powered by KREISEL, will be introduced alongside the current internal combustion race cars.
Projekt E will continue as the leading electric support series while a new FIA eRallycross category will provide an entry-level series within World RX events. European Supercar and Super1600 will continue to provide a valuable pathway towards the pinnacle of the sport using internal combustion engines.

Moreover, the 2020 FIA European Rallycross Championship is scheduled for the concluding races at Biķernieki Circuit for both – Supercar and Super1600 categories.
