Rally Weiz 2021 Hero
Rallye Weiz, fifth round of the Austrian Championship, saw the competition world premiere of a revolutionary rally car. With multiple Austrian rally champion Raimund Baumschlager at the wheel, the fully electric ŠKODA RE-X1 Kreisel took on conventionally driven Rally2 cars. Homologated with a power output of 260 kW, the concept car based on a ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo chassis was on par right from the start. In the end, Baumschlager and co-driver Jürgen Heigl finished an impressive third overall.
