The FIA World RX Championship, the electrified World Rallycross Championship series, kicks off the season with races in Montalegre, Portugal from 1-2 June. Just like last season, engcon is a partner of the Construction Equipment Dealer Team (CE Dealer Team) with drivers Klara Andersson and Niclas Grönholm.
2022 was the first time that a World Championship was decided with fully electrified cars, which was a big step towards sustainability in the world of motorsport. The investment is fully in line with engcon’s ambitions when it comes to addressing climate change for the digging world.
“The partnership has been a hit for us”, says Martin Engström, Product Manager at engcon. “Our sustainability vision when it comes to the digging world certainly fits with the new electrified World Championship series and the investment in electric cars. We are really moving in the same direction. With engcon’s new generation tiltrotator, we are focusing on energy savings. Our innovative solutions reduce dependence on fossil fuels and provide an energy-optimised excavator that is even smoother to operate.”
Both Klara Andersson and Niclas Grönholm have signed a multi-year agreement with CE Dealer Team, last season Klara finished seventh and Niclas third in the groundbreaking rallycross series.
In connection with the World Championship series last year, the recovery plate was launched, a tool that is used to remove cars on the racetrack. By being able to quickly move the cars without the intervention of track staff, safety standards around handling are strengthened. The recovery plate tool is used together with a tiltrotator, and the handling is therefore even more efficient as the tiltrotator creates great flexibility through its unique properties in tilt and rotation. The product has been developed through a collaboration between engcon, Volvo CE and Granfors racing.
Interest in the electrified World Championship series was great in 2022, motorsport electrification is in its infancy and the eyes of fans and partners around the world were focused on the qualifying rounds. Interest in the coming season remains high and engcon is looking forward to being present at the various race events, meeting end customers and cheering on Klara and Niclas.
