Sainteloc Racing will run Audi A1 silhouette cars in the upcoming e-Trophee Andros season, adding further variety to the grid, while the addition of a CMR entry has brought the field up to 12 cars.

Sainteloc, a mainstay in a number of categories including GT racing where it competes as an Audi customer team, will be the only operation to field more than two cars in e-Trophee Andros this season.

It previously confirmed a three-car entry that will include FIA World Rallycross Championship runner-up Andreas Bakkerud and a driver of one of last season’s electric Trophee Andros cars, Aurelien Panis.

It’s now revealed that all three cars will take the form of Audi A1 silhouettes on top of the common Andros Sport base developed by Exagon Engineering.

As previously announced, DA Racing’s cars will use Renault Zoe body shells, while Sylvain Pussier Competition will compete with Peugeot 208 silhouettes.

The remaining teams are all expected to use the standard Andros Sport bodies as part of the common kit.

Classic and Modern Racing (CMR) has been added as a late entry with a single Andros Sport, bringing the field up to 12 cars.

Christophe Ferrier will drive in Elite Pro, while Eddy Benezet, Gerald Fontanel and Joel Lopez will share the seat in Elite races.

Last season, Ferrier won the Enedis Trophee Andros Electrique championship, a support class using less powerful electric cars.

The new fully electrified era of e-Trophee Andros gets underway next weekend (Dec. 7-8) at Val Thorens.
