POLISH RALLY SQUAD RALLYTECHNOLOGY BREAKS NEW GROUNDS BY JOINING ALL ELECTRIC PROJEKT E SERIES IN 2020

• Participation with two cars in 2020 projekt E WRX support series
• First polish Motorsport company to enter an all-electric race car series


Multiple Polish Rally Championship winning team, Rallytechnology from Rybnik is proud to announce a new era in the history of the company and as well Polish motorsport History. The internationally successful and renowned Rally Team have decided to take on a new challenge with taking a pioneering role in Poland by participating in the new all electric Projekt E series starting from 2020. A full participation with two cars is planned, starting with the first race at the iconic SPA Francorchamps racetrack in Belgium. The possibility to build their own racecar solution incorporating a common powertrain package within a cost controlled regulation was a key factor for the decision.

Robert Gabryszewski, CEO Rallytechnology: “Our company became successful by building and racing group N rallycars. We want to be building our own cars again, which is possible in projekt E. Combined with the all-electric powertrain from STARD and the cost controlling regulation, this concept offers us a great business opportunity as a race car builder and team. So we see it as a huge opportunity for us to be among the first in this future area and at the same time take our company to the next level. Rallycross is no stranger to our team so we plan to offer world top level service from the start.”

“You can put the EV powertrain easily into a R5 rolling chassis with the support STARD provide, and this is exactly our solution. The cost of the complete car is then marginally higher than one of our three R5;s but considering the very low running cost of the projekt E car, and our optimized structure, I expect we can offer very competitive packages. We have our first driver confirmed, but definitely have the plan for two cars already in the first year. Interest is big and we have a lot of on going conversations with Polish drivers since STARD demonstrated the car in the “Barborka rally” in Warsaw two weeks ago, but there is also great interest form international drivers which we will look to explore.”


The team plans to have the first car ready to commence testing in March 2020, and is convinced that testing as much and early as possible will be a key factor in the brand new series. Being one of the first teams in electric customer racing is very important for Rallytechnology. After having dominated the Polish Rally scene with 2019 WRC2 runner up Kajetan Kajetanowicz for years, and having established and strengthened their race team operation in various areas, Rallytechnology identified projekt E as the first ever possibility for private teams to run high performing electric race cars.

“In the rally scene, we are well known and have had great successes since we started back in 2006. The business is running well for us, but since a few years we are also searching for new opportunities in motorsport. Electric from our point of view will definitely be the future, but up till now there was no option for a private team to even think about EV racing because of a lack of options. This electric rallycross series is the first ever affordable option to build and race proper EV race cars for private teams like us. So it is a little bit like we have waited for exactly this opportunity. Next year will definitely be very exciting for us.”
