Opel Motorsport has extended the long-standing cooperation with Holzer Motorsport.

The race and rally specialists from Augsburg will provide the technical support and the on-event parts service for all teams competing in the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup. Tyres for the first electric rally brand cup in the world will be supplied by Michelin.

The development of the Opel Corsa-e Rally for the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup continues at a fast pace. Two development vehicles of the 100kW (136hp) electric car have been undergoing durability testing since the end of last year at the Dudenhofen Test Center. The next step will be performance tests on rally stages.

“This is good news for our teams”, says Opel Motorsport Director, Jörg Schrott. “The continuation of our 20-year-long cooperation with Holzer Motorsport further enhances the status of the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup. Günther Holzer and his crew have been skilled and reliable partners for all teams in the ADAC Opel Rally Cup since 2013. The same goes for Michelin. After the successful cooperation in the ADAC Opel Rally Cup, Michelin will now equip all the Corsa-e Rally cars.”

The new all-electric brand cup featuring the Opel Corsa-e Rally will begin on August 21-22 with the ADAC Saarland-Pfalz Rally.
