Introducing UNKORRUPTED, the newest team ready to shake up the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Created by four-time Free Skiing World Champion, motorsport icon, stunt driver and entrepreneur Guerlain Chicherit, UNKORRUPTED will be operated by GC KOMPETITION and is here to push the boundaries and disrupt the World RX order.
The team is competing in a pair of GCK Clio R.S. RX that have undergone massive developments in the off season, including a new engine update from ORECA, new BOS dampers and significant work on weight distribution.
Former FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup Champion Guerlain brings his 2019 teammate Rokas Baciuška with him to UNKORRUPTED, and together they plan to push for the top and not let anyone get in their way. After all, a bit of chaos is never a bad thing, right?
Having founded and developed GC KOMPETITION and driven for the team over the past years, Guerlain Chicherit climbs into the driver’s seat for the new UNKORRUPTED team in 2020 to focus on his own personal goals in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. As part of UNKORRUPTED, Guerlain is ready to take on the world – and isn’t worried about making friends along the way.
“I won’t pull any punches: we’re here to cause trouble! I’m stoked to be bringing UNKORRUPTED into World RX, and together we will push the limits and not be afraid to ruffle some feathers. I’ve spent my whole career taking on new challenges and ‘changing the rules’, and this time is no different.”
New season, new squad, new wheels… plenty of change for Guerlain Chicherit in 2020. But there’s one thing that will never change: his passion for competition and love of motorsport.
“I’m already psyched for the season to start, it feels like we’ve been waiting forever. Nothing in motorsport offers a bigger adrenaline rush than rallycross, and ever since my first time in World RX (back in 2015) I’ve had the rallycross bug. After getting some of my best results and performances last season, and seeing all the work and testing that has gone into the GCK Clio R.S. RX for this season, I can’t wait to get started with UNKORRUPTED.”
Joining Guerlain at UNKORRUPTED is his GCK stablemate from last year, 20-year-old Lithuanian driver Rokas Baciuška. Baciuška, the 2018 European S1600 Champion, drove five races in a Megane R.S. RX with the GCK Academy last year, impressing everyone with his pace. In only his third race with the team, he took GCK’s (and his) first ever qualifying win and first ever overnight top qualifier at Loheac RX – a feat he repeated at the next race in Riga.
Guerlain is clearly excited about the potential Rokas has shown, and eager to bring him into the UNKORRUPTED fold as part of a longer-term plan to help build and develop him as an athlete and progress together.
“I’m stoked to have Rokas alongside me in the team – he’s not just a great guy, but also rapid behind the wheel! Everyone saw last season how fast he is, and I really think we can build something together here and help Rokas grow into a big star in the world of rallycross.”
Rokas is equally excited to be joining his friend and mentor Guerlain in the newly-formed UNKORRUPTED team, and can’t wait to line up on the start line in Barcelona.
“It’s awesome to be driving alongside Guerlain again – I loved the opportunity to join GCK last year and am super excited to be part of UNKORRUPTED this season. 2019 was a massive year for me as it proved to me and to others that I have the speed to compete right at the top of World RX.”
“But in 2020 I want even more. After seeing all the developments on the GCK Clio R.S. RX, I just want to get started and push for the very top. I’m no longer the new kid on the block, so it’s time for me to take the gloves off and get to work.”
Guerlain and Rokas will make their debut with UNKORRUPTED at the season-opening World RX of Catalunya-Barcelona on 18-19 April.
