More details emerge of new electrification proposal of the 2020 FIA World Rallycross Championship. Thanks to the submission of a Invitation to Tender (ITT) document from the governing body of world motorsport, further details are emerging around the often criticised move towards electric powertrains in the FIA World RX championship from the 2020 season, with confirmation that these flame breathing monsters look set to take on a pair of 250Kw motors in the top Rallycross series in the world, taking a drastic step away from the high performance traditional combustion motors used throughout the history of the sport. According to the ITT document, the FIA states the battery supply is to cover to 2020 - 2023 seasons, and is open to battery manufacturers whom wish to develop a spec battery for the full field of cars: “The aim of Electric Rallycross is to allow the development of electric technologies and race for the efficiency of the traction chain of the car, to showcase that electric cars are as fun and powerful as thermal ones. "In order to maintain cost control with a high level of technology, the FIA is defining a battery pack that all car manufacturers will have to use in their cars which are then delivered to competitors.” The new power unit and category rules have to be in place and functional for early 2020, with testing of the series set to begin in March of the same year.
