STCC and EPWR, the constructors of the new electric touring cars, unveiled the first completed all-electric CUPRA Born at Mantorp Park today which will be raced by reigning champions PWR – CUPRA Sweden next year.
“We’re accelerating production, eager to support a sustainable motorsport future and it’s of course a boost for everyone involved to see more cars being delivered to the STCC ahead of 2024.” said Micke Jansson, CEO of EPWR.
PWR – CUPRA Sweden will field three Born race cars next year for Robert Dahlgren, Axel Bengtsson and a yet to be revealed driver, marking the ninth year in the STCC for the team with CUPRA.
“We’ve worked closely with PWR and STCC to push the development of sustainable motorsport forward for many years and it’s of course great to see the first new CUPRA Born in race version. Our cooperation enables us to continue showing that electrification and performance is a perfect match,” said Per Brinkenberg, Brand Manager of CUPRA Sweden.
The first Tesla Model 3, which will be raced by Brink Motorsport next year, was unveiled at Knutstorp three weeks ago, with further models to be revealed in the coming months ahead of the postponed 2024 STCC season.
“We are thrilled to show the first new CUPRA Born to the world and continue piecing the puzzle together ahead of our historic 2024 season,” said Micke Bern, CEO of STCC.
“PWR and CUPRA have been a successful key player of the championship since they entered it in 2016 and we look forward to see them continuing their strong programme with us for 2024 and beyond.”
