Watch Guerlain Chicherit Rallycross His New Renault Megane RX

You remember Guerlain Chicherit, don’t you? He’s the competitive skier turned rally driver who backflipped a Mini a few years back. Well, this is his new ride.

It’s a Renault Megane RS, but it’s not been prepared by Renaultsport. Instead, it’s been developed by the motorsport consultants at Prodrive specifically for rallycross racing.

Apparently Chicherit and Prodrive weren’t ready to show the final design to the public just yet, though. So when it came time for the test at Silverstone, they wrapped it in camouflage – a rather eye-seering orange, black, and white combo, at that.

Did that stop the Frenchman from giving it his all? Hardly, as you can see from the videos below. But we’ll have to wait a little longer to see the rally machine unveiled in full.

After that, it’ll be up to Chicherit and his teammate, and fellow Frenchman, Jérôme Grosset-Janin to make the most of their new ride in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Neither has won a world rallycross event to date, but Grosset-Janin did win a European championship round in a Peugeot a few years back.

They’ll have some stiff competition this season. Petter Solberg is back with a new Volkswagen Polo R, Mattias Ekström has an upgraded Audi S1, the Grönholms are bringing a new Hyundai i20 and WRC all-time record man Sebastian Loeb will be competing in a Peugeot 208. And those are but a few of the 18 Supercar entries lined up for this season, which kicks off at Catalunya in just a couple of weeks.
