A fantastic weekend of racing for CE Dealer Team and Ascendum ends with a podium finish in Montalegre, with Niclas Gröholm taking third place and his teammate Klara Andersson finishing fifth.
“I’m happy to start the season with a podium and for the team to have worked so hard all weekend. I was hoping to finish a bit higher, but I think it was what we deserved. In Norway, we will try to make the race even stronger and more consistent,” said Niclas Grönholm.
“I felt we did a good job this weekend. I developed and progressed a lot, but I still have a lot to learn. I want to thank the team and Jussi for encouraging me a lot this weekend,” said Klara Andersson.
Ascendum is delighted to have been, for the second consecutive year, the Hosting Dealer at Montalegre – the first race of the 2023 FIA World Rallycross Championship – and Gold Sponsor of the CE Dealer Team by Volvo Construction Equipment. A key platform to activate the knowledge of our customers and internal teams about e-mobility solutions.
The entire program for the two days was carefully prepared with this goal in mind, as Ascendum invited customers from 7 of our 14 Geographies: Portugal, Spain, Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Romania and Slovakia, aiming precisely to extend the impact this event could have on accelerating e-mobility to other markets.
Clients were involved in a unique experience that allowed them to feel the adrenaline rush of the WRX racing environment, but also experience first-hand the growing range of Volvo CE electric machines available on the market and witness several Volvo machines in action., performing various tasks such as track maintenance, track construction and even removing cars from the track.
By joining WRX and Volvo CE in this partnership, Ascendum’s goal is to accelerate this transformation, showing that electric is the future not only in motorsport, but also in the Construction Equipment sector.
Now the CE Dealer Team is on its way to Norway, for the next race on June 17 and 18. Let’s continue to follow the WRX championship and support the CE Dealer Team!
