The Audi EKS team founded and run by Swedish racing driver Mattias Ekström, race in the World Rallycross Championships (WRX). Rallycross is a combination of rallying & circuit racing. It is head-to-head short, sharping racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. Drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than two seconds – faster than an F1 car.
Castrol and Audi EKS have been in partnership since 2017, where they amassed four team wins, 8 podiums and a total of 380 points.
