During their first race outing at the iconic Lånkebanen circuit in Hell, Norway, the new cars’ speed already looks likely to supersede their combustion-engine counterparts. “They have so much potential to be the quickest rallycross car ever built,” says Klara Andersson, a driver at CE Dealer Team.

For fans used to the sound and smell of petrol engines, it may take a bit of getting used to. “It’s a bold move to go full electric,” says Andersson, but promoters hope that the evolution of speed and racing ability will win over die-hard petrolheads and newcomers alike. “There is no way back,” says Arne Dirks, executive director of the FIA World Rallycross series. “The old sport doesn’t exist anymore.”
