By Johan Laubscher

Last week it was announced that Münnich Motorsport are going to be focussing on their new Audi A3/S3 Supercar for the new 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship. More details regarding the project have emerged this week. has published a new article on their website that reveals more details regarding the new Audi Rallycross project from Münnich Motorsport. That article, which includes quotes from Rene Münnich, new photos of the car, drivetrain and engine details, a brief look at Audi’s history in the sport and more details of Münnich Motorsport’s 2014 campaign, can be seen via this link HERE.

Münnich Motorsport will be competing in the new FIA World Rallycross Championship during 2014 and they will be fielding one Audi A3/S3 during their development year. The Audi Supercar will be driven by Rene Münnich. Some of the new information about the project includes:

The car has been built and prepared completely in-house by Münnich Motorsport and it will be fielded in the Supercar category of the 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship. The team will be fielding one of the new Audi vehicles during the first season in order to focus on the car’s development, but the possibility exists for more cars in the future. 

The car pictured, and which has been seen in testing, is the team's first design prototype, which they will be using for initial testing and development. They are currently busy building a second Audi rallycross car and this is the vehicle that will be used in the championship during 2014. It is said that this new vehicle will differ visually from the current test car, as the current car’s striking bodywork is not completely suited for rallycross competition.

For more information about the project please see the article HERE.

This project from Münnich Motorsport is certainly very exciting and it will be great to see an Audi rallycross vehicle entered in the new 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship.
