About FIA World Rallycross Championship
The FIA World Rallycross Championship is head-to- head, short, sharp racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. High profile drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than two seconds. World RX debuted in 2014 with a 12-round calendar including events in Argentina, Turkey, Canada and throughout Europe. An expanded series was confirmed for 2015, with new rounds at Formula One venues Hockenheim in Germany and the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. In 2016, an all- new city race was held in Riga, Latvia and in 2017 rallycross will visit the continent of Africa for the first time with a new leg scheduled in Cape Town, South Africa. Race meetings include a number of short, sharp action-packed qualifying heats with the most successful drivers progressing through to the finals.
