Stohl makes history with first electric rallycross win
Manfred Stohl piloted the world’s first electric rallycross car to a maiden victory in the Race of Austrian Champions event at Greinbach on Sunday.
Stohl drove STARD’S fully-electric, twin-motor vehicle – based on a Peugeot 207 Super2000 chassis – to victory a year after the machine’s first public appearance at the same event.
Boasting the equivalent of 544 horsepower, Stohl used the four-wheeldrive machine that has undergone recent developments to beat Mitsubishi Lancer E6 driver Gerwald Grossing. “I didn’t get the best start, but from there the car went well and I qualified for the final,” said Stohl. “In the final I had two good runs, the car went as well as I expected. Not only did we win, but our time (1m03.31s), we set a new course record.”
