Despite the postponement and delays in the project due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kreisel has been pushing ahead with plans to begin running the concept in a ‘test mule’ in November ahead of a potential competition debut in the Janner Rally next January.

The four-wheel drive, twin-motor 500 kW kit will be built into a Skoda Fabia R5 chassis (called the Fabia REX), in a collaboration with the Baumschlager Rallye Racing squad run by three-time Janner Rally winner Raimund Baumschlager.

The kit will run a single-speed transmission, produced by British firm Xtrac, and Kreisel will test differential ratio and ramp angle specification options before deciding on the single-spec that will be used.
