Monster Athlete Guerlain Chicherit steps up to the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2018 with his own GC Kompetition team driving the new Prodrive-developed Renault Megane RS.
A professional skier and four-time world champion in freeriding, Chicherit holds the record for becoming the first man in history to complete an unassisted backflip in a car. More recently Chicherit has focused his attentions on motorsport having amassed several starts in the Dakar Rally over the last decade.
Chicherit made his World RX debut in the JRM Mini RX Countryman in 2015 and has gone on to make a handful of appearances on the international stage in preparation for this season’s full-time tilt with his own two-car GC Kompetition outfit. Driving the all-new Renault Megane RS, Chicherit will be joined by fellow Frenchman Jerome Grosset-Janin.
