For the second season, the organizers have announced some changes for the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup. For the season starting in May 2022, there will be some improvements in detail and significantly more international orientation of the electric racing series.
In addition to appearances as part of the German Rally Championship, the 100 kW electric cars will compete in three events in neighboring countries, according to Opel parent company Stellantis. Specifically, the calendar for 2022 includes seven events in Germany, Austria, France and the Netherlands.
The technology of the Corsa-e Rally has been optimized in detail. A revised differential lock, for example, ensures that the drivers get the 260 Newton meters of torque onto the track with as little slippage as possible. A revised sound system also increases the perceptibility of the electric racers as well as their acoustic appeal.
However, the reliability and performance of the electric rally cars satisfied those responsible in the first season – hence only adjustments in detail. “With the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup, the long-standing partners ADAC and Opel have created a milestone in international motorsport,” says Opel Motorsport Director Jörg Schrott. “We have proved that electric rallying works and is exciting. The Cup will be even better this season, thanks to the highly attractive calendar and the fine tuning of the technology.”
