Energy is stored in a 150 kWh battery pack which will take the car from start to finish on most of the stages. GCK Motorsport will be unveiling their GCK e-Blast 1 at the 2021 Dakar Rally, and it will be taking on the terrain around the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia, in January 2021 as well as other off-road races throughout 2021 to optimise the vehicle and technology further.

Guerlain Chicherit, President of Green Corp Konnection and GCK Motorsport, commented ‘I’ve been working on bringing together my passions for motorsport and technology with my vision for a sustainable future. Living in the Alps is a daily reminder of the steps we need to take to develop cutting-edge technology and use our existing motorsport projects as a platform to drive a sustainable transformation.

‘I’m super excited to have brought together forward-thinking specialists in their fields to produce ground-breaking work that will make a difference. I can’t wait to see our first phase brought to life at a race that means so much to me, the Dakar Rally.’
