The world’s first electric rally one-make cup will be a guest at the Mont-Blanc Rally. Seven races in four nations with the German Rally Championship as a basis.
The calendar of the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup 2022 is complete. After six of the seven races in four nations had already been announced before the turn of the year, the date for the French guest appearance of the first electric rally one-make cup worldwide has now been set. With the Mont-Blanc Morzine Rally from 8 to 10 September 2022, another highlight of the season awaits the participants in their 136 hp Opel Corsa-e Rally.
The asphalt hatch at the foot of the highest mountain in the Alps at 4807.73 metres is a special challenge for the young teams and their brisk Stromers. The rounds of the French Rally Championship are among the most demanding in Europe. The Mont-Blanc Morzine Rally also boasts a unique landscape. The special stages around the well-known winter sports resort of Morzine in the Haute-Savoie department not far from the French-Swiss border are characterised not least by their unique topography.
“The large differences in altitude at the Mont-Blanc Morzine Rally are also a technical challenge,” explains Opel Motorsport Director Jörg Schrott. “In extensive test drives, we have found the alpine suitability of the Corsa-e Rally confirmed. This great event further enhances the already highly attractive calendar of the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup 2022.”
