After five years of successful hosting the FIA World Rallycross Championship at the Mettet's Circuit Jules Tacheny, the promoter IMG and RUMESM have today ended their agreement to host the World RX of Belgium.

The World RX event at Mettet has enjoyed much success, having been a mainstay on the World RX calendar since the series’ inaugural season back in 2014. However all parties have amicably agreed to part ways with immediate effect.

“We are very proud that Mettet’s Circuit Jules Tacheny was able to host the FIA World Rallycross Championship for five years, thanks to an excellent working relationship with IMG,” said Freddy Tacheny, Chairman of RUMESM.

The World RX of Belgium has seen four different race winners over the five years: Toomas Heikkinen, Mattias Ekstrom, Johan Kristoffersson and Sebastian Loeb. 

“The RUMESM and Mettet have been brilliant hosts but both parties agree that the time is right to part ways," said Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President, Motorsports at IMG. "We wish the RUMESM and Mettet every success in the future.”

The full 2019 World RX calendar will be announced in due course.
