THE CAR

 
Driven by our ambition to change the rules – in the paddock, on the track and amongst our fans – we made our debut in the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2018 with the innovative, bespoke built Megane R.S. RX. Reaching the final in only our second race, we scored a first podium later that year at the legendary Höljes Championship round.

In our second year in the championship, GCK jumped to a 5-car entry, with the introduction of the GCK Academy in a pair of Clio R.S. RX. The main GCK squad got two more podiums in 2019, including our best ever result with 2nd and 4th at Loheac RX, and showed race-winning pace throughout the year!

The 2020 season saw GCK Bilstein, UNKORRUPTED and the Monster Energy GCK RX Cartel all compete under the GCK umbrella and, after a tumultuous, coronavirus-impacted year, the season ended on a high with Anton Marklund taking a podium in the final race of the year.

RX was fully thought out and developed by Prodrive in 2018, boasting a Renault Mégane R.S. five door bodyshell, Prodrive roll cage exceeding FIA standards and carbon composite rear wings designed in CFD. The GCK Mégane R.S. RX offers technical innovations never seen in the rallycross paddock. 

From 2019, French company FORS Performance took over the further development and operations of the cars, further developing the Megane to run with a new ORECA engine and on new evo Bilstein dampers in 2020.
