GCK Motorsport will be joining the world-renowned Dakar Rally in 2021 at its NEOM stage to showcase its latest cross-country project, the GCK e-Blast 1.
The GCK e-Blast 1 represents GCK Motorsport’s first step in promoting the future of cross-country rally: it will run environmentally friendly, fully electric technology for long distance rallying with a view to integrate a GCK hydrogen solution as the programme develops. Drawing on the parallels of the technological evolution between both, the electric project will provide the foundation for GCK’s hydrogen future.
GCK E-BLAST 1
GCK Motorsport produced a bespoke electric powertrain and battery-pack specific to cross-country rallying.
Integrated into the chassis that won Dakar Rally in 2018 and further developing it to produce 250 Kw, the equivalent of 340 hp, with battery power of 150 Kwh to achieve a top speed of 180kmh and max torque of 1000 Nm, the GCK e-Blast 1 will provide the perfect platform to drive further technological advancement in long-distance rallying.
