For 2021 for sure we want to focus on FIA WorldRX and we want to win not only the Team’s title, but a Driver’s one as well. We are also looking into more projects to expand our operation in multiple disciplines."

“I founded the EKS team in 2014 with an ambition to win races and championships, and we achieved that in 2016, by winning Driver’s and Team’s titles. And during the 2019 & 2020 JC Raceteknik have taken our cars to the top of Nordic, European and World championships. From now on Joel will take care of all the EKS and JC Raceteknik joint racing projects – rallycross, rally, crosskarts and anything else we come up with. We are also looking into the future of electric racing and sooner than later there will be a race car in our workshop that is purely driven by electricity,”
