I’m in Wellsboro, PA for the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally (actually I’m in a town about an hour west. I don’t know the name of it but I saw a sign that said library so I dove in to take advantage of that sweet sweet free wifi). Turkey Totally snuck up on me so I’m late with the preview. I’m going to bang…
This championship is far from decided. A battle between Bakkerud and Hansen was expected from the start, but that Kevin would be leading the championship before the last three rounds was not excactly what we were thinking in April. Loheac is just the right track to turn things around just one more time.
While the FIA World Rallycross Championship doesn’t visit the legendary Estering Circuit in Germany this year, the EuroRX decided to go anyways. That means that for the first time since 2013, the European Rallycross Championship has its own standalone event. That deserves a proper preview!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Rally Finland! Get ready for some yumps.
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
