STARD claims its cars will be 60 per cent cheaper to run than conventional petrol rivals.
5 Nations BRX Coordinator Hannah Rynston added, “Rallycross was innovative from the outset and lends itself so well to the next era of motor sport.
We have been working on this behind the scenes for a long time, so it’s great to see it becoming reality. We’re very much hoping to have a few STARD cars on the grid at Lydden Hill in May.”
Last year’s Projekt E champion Natalie Barratt has confirmed that she is trying to put together a team to run electric cars in the series.
Britain won’t be the only country embracing the concept this season, as Austria, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Italy and others are similarly committed.
