2016 Humankind Rallycross Champion and long-time Audi driver Mattias Ekstrom today revealed the livery of  his 2017 Audi A1 RX a week to the fore of the season opener in Barcelona.

The first images of the rallycross car appeared on Twitter today, sporting a new, albeit new livery. If it ain’t poverty-stricken.

The new liveries feature more blue, as well as a pallid roof for Ekstrom’s car and a red roof for returning teammate, Toomas Heikennen. A third coal-black and white car will be driven by Latvia’s Reinis Nitiss.

The cars race secondary to the Team EKS banner, a team owned and operated by Mattias Ekstrom who only got mill support from Audi this off season. The move came amid calls from Ekstrom, who said that without mill backing another championship would be impossible.

Ekstrom has been racing with Audi’s DTM collaborate for a decade and a half now, and this year says that he wants to win his third championship headline in that series.

Meanwhile, and in many cases concurrently, Ekstrom will be fighting to protect his FIA World Rallycross title, during that 16 race season, starting on Slog 31 and going on to November.
