French rally team Saintéloc Racing has always been strongly linked with the PSA Group that now owns Opel, with the team fielding several Peugeot and Citroën rally cars in the various classes of the FIA European Rally Championship.

They also manage the operation of the single-make Peugeot 208 R2 class in the French Rally Championship. Now they are taking another step with adding another car brand to its line-up from the PSA Group, fielding a Opel Corsa E, the all-electric rally cars that will become a single-make class in the ADAC Opel E-Rally Cup in Germany.

The new car would have had its first appearance as a test at a rally event in Austria which also included test days with registered drivers and teams, but that was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the ADAC Opel E-Rally Cup will start remains to be seen, the plan is still a seasonal start in the autumn.

Saintéloc already have a great deal of expertise in motorsport and electric driving from the French winter series Trophée Andros. As yet, no contestants have been presented for the German series, continued plans are on a similar unit class in France if the German series go well, which also could then end up in Saintéloc Racing’s operation.
