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.

2021

Known as the world’s most challenging long-distance rally event, it comes as no surprise that GCK Motorsport will be unveiling their GCK e-Blast 1 at the 2021 Dakar Rally.

 

The e-Blast 1 will be driven by GCK Motorsport's test driver Kevin Abbring and 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 further optimise the vehicle and technology. In parallel, GCK Motorsport will be developing their hydrogen-powered solution with a view to present a hydrogen-powered vehicle in January 2022, before being fully race-ready in 2023 - 2024.

 

GCK Motorsport will also make their green racing technology available commercially to other teams attempting the long-distance rally and sharing GCK’s vision in reducing their environmental impact.
