Suddenly we’re here again. The first weekend of July, halfway through the FIA World Rallycross season and we’re ready for one of the biggest events of the year. The entry list is already maxed out, and huge crowds are expected as usual. You don’t want to miss this one!
Have we recovered after the action at Spa yet? We’ll have to because it seems that Brexit is cancelled. In what other way is it possible that the FIA European Rallycross Championship joins the FIA World Rallycross Championship for the British WorldRX-round at Silverstone this year?
Ah, finally we’re into this good rhythm where every second weekend includes a round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship. For the second time this year, we’ll head to a brand new rallycross track based at an exciting F1 circuit. Not just any F1 circuit though - Spa it is!
2003 World Rally Champion. 2014 and 2015 World Rallycross Champion. Runner up in WRC three times, and one season third as a privateer. Norwegian Rally Champion in 1998. Norwegian Rallycross and hillclimb champion in 1995. His team completely dominated in World Rallycross the last couple of years. An absolute legend.
That was approximately the thought going through my head as I looked at the calendar for the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship. April has barely started, and the first round of the season is set to be held at a new track at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. Wait, WHAT?
Somehow we’re already four rounds into the 2019 WRC season, which means it’s time for the championship’s first full tarmac event, the Tour de Corse
This weekend we’ll have the last round of this FIA World Rallycross season, where both titles are already handed out to Johan Kristoffersson and Volkswagen. What is then still to play for? In Fantasy RX: Everything.
We’re closing up on the end of the season, Johan Kristoffersson is crowned FIA World Rallycross Champion for the second year in a row, and is looking more dominant than ever. That’s why we’re going to Estering and its feared first corner, just to mix things up a bit.
