About Nitrocross

Since its premiere in 2018, apart from some tests done in Europe and Canada, the Nitrocross championship has been mainly held in the USA. Each event features the Group E races, the category in which we compete with the FC1-X.

The main attraction of Nitrocross races is to witness the most powerful electric racing car built up to date, the FC1- X developed by QEV Technologies and Olsbergs MSE. The FC1- X is capable of producing the electric equivalent of 1,087 peak horsepower (800 kW), it can accelerate from 0-60 in just 1.4 seconds and launch faster off the line than an F1 car.
