myenergi, pioneer of the world’s first eco-smart EV charging device, has partnered with XITE Energy Racing for the 2022 Nitro Rallycross (Nitro RX) season. As part of the agreement, the team’s 1,070bhp all-electric race car will be emblazoned with iconic myenergi livery throughout the season’s ten global events.
Led by team owner/driver Oli Bennett, the British outfit will compete in Group E (electric), which will see some of the fastest and most exciting racing anywhere in the world. Debuting at Lydden Hill in June, the series brings together the fastest off-road EVs with the wildest tracks in rallycross to create a revolutionary new racing format.
The XITE Energy Racing battery-powered FC1-X all-electric race car has been primed to take on the huge jumps of Nitro RX and is capable of hitting an impressive 0-60mph in just 1.4 seconds. With the most power of any car in rallycross, it’s set to bring a real spark to the 2022 season.
Jordan Brompton, co-founder and CMO of myenergi, commented: “At myenergi, we’re pioneers. Pioneers of new technologies, pioneers of new ideas and pioneers of a better future. Through our sponsorship of XITE Energy Racing in the 2022 Nitro RX season, we’re looking to pioneer a revolutionary new racing format and bring the excitement of off-road EV motorsport to the global stage.
“Over the past 12 months, we’ve built a strong relationship with Oli and the XITE Energy team, taking electric racing and our passion for the planet to the masses. Our two brands really do go hand-in-hand as innovative, forward-thinking businesses looking to drive the future of sustainability.
“We’re confident that Nitro RX is the place to be. The all-electric FC1-X car is redefining EV capability – I can’t wait to see it take to the track emblazoned with the myenergi logo!”
Oli Bennett, team owner/driver at XITE Energy Racing, added: “The FC1 is a brutal, fast and exciting electric car and something I cannot wait to race. It’s been built for a job, and the job is extreme. I’m excited to get going!
“We spent time understanding the new FC1 car concept, the series’ marketing ability and its global expansion plans that align with XITE energy and myenergi’s own marketing ambitions. For me it was an easy decision and a perfect way to increase my involvement as a team owner and driver in EV racing.
“For XITE Energy Racing powered by myenergi, this year is a hugely important one in becoming the leading global sports team in off-road EV racing. With the crazy format, the cars and the stars that Nitro provides, it lends itself perfectly to both my racing goals and the team’s brand partners ambitions on the global stage. We want to win, and we want people to watch.
“I’m really looking forward to building a killer team and racing brand this year. We have some huge plans on and off the track and the team will have the performance to compete for wins. You might be able to tell… we’re really excited!”
