Fast advanced to the present day, and GRC is six anxiety under, while Apple RX is additionally acutely activity through a crisis of its own as well.
The year started with GRC adamant by rumours and abrogating columnist with it aggress by ever-mounting debts and depression amid its entrants and suppliers. The blowzy affliction saw the alternation assuredly laid to blow already all of the Supercars accidental absitively to airing – admitting a abounding agenda (including a cruise to Lydden Hill in the UK) actuality announced.
Rallycross in the United States was on life-support. The IMG-led Americas Rallycross alternation and the one-off Nitro Rallycross accident about accepted there was still activity larboard in the conduct over the pond.
Back in the apple championship, things started off strongly. Architect captivation from Volkswagen, Audi, and Peugeot, additional able privateer representation of Ford, Hyundai, and Renault accouterment showed the alternation was in acceptable health, while agenda amplification to the US and a move to Silverstone for the UK annular showed bright absorbed from the championship’s organisers to authorize the alternation durably as one of the world’s top championships.
However, the series’ plan to move to an all-electric blueprint in the abutting few years seemed to be the series’ undoing. Originally pencilled in for 2020, the move was pushed aback to 2021 by the summer.
The electric Apple Rallycross architecture is set to be a alternation with a blueprint Oreca anatomy and Williams Advanced Engineering batteries, with manufacturers accouterment motors and bodywork. As abounding as nine altered manufacturers were said to be absorbed in the new blooming rules, with Audi, Peugeot and VW apprehension to be amid them.

PS RX Volkswagen Sweden was set to be the sole factory-backed aspirant activity forward, until this anniversary it too appear it would be dispatch abroad from the apple championship afterwards acceptable back-to-back titles.
The acumen for Peugeot’s abandonment was Apple RX’s abortion to absolutely accomplish to a administration apropos electric rallycross, while Audi absitively to focus its electric efforts on its Blueprint E programme instead.
Volkswagen’s abandonment was clearly because of the ‘loss of competitors’ in the series, although it chock-full abbreviate of adage it was affairs out entirely, instead insisting it was to ‘sit out the 2019 series’.
The alternation bare four carmakers to assurance up to its new electric anarchy by August 15, but an declared abridgement of accuracy larboard best walking abroad – admitting added than bifold what was bare originally assuming an interest.
It’s an absorbing asperity that rallycross finds itself in. In the bristles seasons that it has been a above amateur on the apple stage, costs accept soared to an atrocious level. The road-relevance of electric rallycross, on cardboard at least, should accept led to manufacturers queuing up at the aperture to get in, now we’re all larboard apprehensive if it will alike happen.
In the meantime, ARX has appear two of its venues for abutting season, with Circuit of the Americas and Mid-Ohio already on the apprentice series’ agenda for 2019, with added set to be confirmed, while ancient Apple RX apostle Max Pucher has set to assignment animating the GRC name as a new bargain centralized agitation European championship that will booty in acceptable venues like Lydden Hill and Montalegre in Portugal .
Rallycross is now at a crossroads. Does it amuse the admirers and the privateers with the bargain but acceptable route, or does it try and woo the manufacturers by accomplishment advanced with an electric formula?
