• RallyX Nordic adds CrossCar to official programme alongside Supercars, Supercar Lites, SuperTouring and RX Academy classes
• All-new FIA XC Cross Car to form basis of championship alongside Xtreme CrossKart
• Inclusive new Nations’ Cup and Teams’ Trophy added to prize count for 2019
• Expanded race programme creates unified RallyX Nordic career path and points structure
RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires has affirmed its commitment to promoting rallycross talent across all disciplines this season with the introduction of the new RallyX Nordic CrossCar category, plus the formation of two inclusive new championships.
A firm favourite amongst fans, Crosskarts featured in a selection of rounds in 2018 but will for 2019 be officially brought into the RallyX Nordic fold and compete as part of the support package for all seven rounds
Moreover, by placing CrossCar directly alongside RX Academy, Super Touring, Supercar Lites and Supercars, it further emphasises RallyX Nordic’s pledge to establish a formal career path for aspiring rallycross talent, as well as encouraging teams to invest in their future.
Many of rallycross’ leading competitors have progressed through the ranks via Crosskarts and RX Academy, with RallyX Nordic’s promise to promote tomorrow’s talent demonstrated by various initiatives, including a fully paid season in Supercar Lites for the RX Academy champion.
The RallyX Nordic CrossCar class will make use of the brand-new FIA-sanctioned XC Cross Car, though Extreme CrossKart machines are also eligible to compete.
The category is regarded as one of the most cost-effective entries into rallycross and has paved the way for several high-profile drivers starting out in the sport, including 2018 RallyX Nordic champion Oliver Solberg, with organisers committed to ensuring entry fees remain competitive.
