RX Rallycross will be returning to the road in March next year. The racing will be held at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain and it will feature the teams from France, Italy and the UK. The circuit is situated close to the border with France, so it will be a race you can see live on television. The first round of this new series will take place on March 3rd and the rest of the teams will meet at various other venues.
It is estimated that over fifty percent of the total audience for the Formula Renault season finale at the season opener in Australia last year were people who took part in the RX Rallycross events. The fans were a large reason why the sport has enjoyed such growth in recent years and they are now looking forward to next year's season.
Racing is certainly not a new thing, it was used as a sport in the early nineteen seventies and the names that are commonly known today include the World Sportscar Championship (WSC) and Formula One Grand Prix of Europe (F1GPE). The idea behind these different motorsport events was the idea that the cars were not only to be raced on the track but they were also to be tested on the street as well.
For RX Rallycross, this concept has been expanded even further by introducing an open-wheel rally style competition to the championship. This means that the car is able to go through any terrain it needs to go through without having to worry about the weather. The event has been well received in Britain and the racing events will be taking place on the streets as well as on the track in Barcelona.
In its new guise RX Rallycross is set to be a very competitive competition and it looks set to be very close when it comes to the overall title. There are many drivers out there who have already been confirmed and many more who are going to be joining them but this is the top class of motor sport that we all know and love.
There will be many exciting developments over the coming months to make the sport even more exciting and you can follow the progress of the new competition with the new website of RX Rallycross. You can also find out all the latest news and updates on Facebook and Twitter.
