Ascendum Gears Up for Montalegre: Countdown has begun for the Opening Stopover of 2023 FIA WRX Championship

Thursday, June 1, 2023

We are already in countdown mode for the Montalegre stopover this weekend, where Ascendum will be once again Hosting Dealer and Gold Sponsor of the CE Dealer Team by Volvo Construction Equipment. A race even more special this year as it will be the opening season of the 2023 FIA WRX Championship.

​​​​​Niclas Grönholm and Klara Andersson (who respectively came 3rd and 7th in the 2022 world championship) are again competing for the CE Dealer Team - currently the only mixed-gender team-, driving the 100% electric rallycross car with a just released new design, which makes this partnership with Volvo CE crucial for raising awareness among Ascendum's customers and partners regarding electric mobility, carbon neutrality and the solutions already available on the market.

Ascendum will bring approximately 245 Guests from 7 of its 14 geographies: Portugal, Spain, Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Romania and Slovakia, and around 80 Ascendum team members, between the 2 days: 

JUNE, 3:

  • 91 Customers from Portugal, Spain and CEG countries
  • 12 Guests from Portuguese Municipalities
  • 4 Professional schools
  • 52 Ascendum Team Members

JUNE, 4:

  • 138 Customers from Portugal
  • 27 Ascendum Team Members

For these 2 days, the guests will be able to experience much more than only the races, as the carefully prepared program will include many other events, in a multi-market approach that aims to extend the impact this event might have on the acceleration of e-mobility and also to increase Ascendum’s brand awareness:

  • Electric machines exhibition and demonstrations;
  • Clarification of doubts and mitigation of some myths with specialists in electric mobility (Test & Try);
  • E-mobility Seminars: Change starts here & Going electric and Smarter Solutions;
  • VIP access to the paddock and opportunity to meet the CE Dealer Team;
  • A kids mini excavator sandpit.


Follow us along the track and support our CE Dealer Team!
