Most significantly, this year’s title will be decided on South African soil and to celebrate, the new organizers World Sport is preparing a bigger and better weekend than ever to ensure that Cape Town's World RX extravaganza goes off with a bang.
The World Rallycross Championship delivers dramatic ground-shaking rapid-fire action second to none throughout a splendid series of Saturday heats, through to Sunday’s Semis and into the explosive action of the championship-deciding final World Rallycross Finale — a seismic thrill to the race fan and the man in the street alike.
Racing 600bhp supercars capable of accelerating to 100km/h in under two seconds on the mixed dirt and asphalt of the Killarney International Raceway RX track.
The World Rallycross drivers will arrive in Cape Town hot off a year of grueling all-wheel-drive warfare that has raged across the globe, from the Emirates, through the Americas and across Europe en route to it all coming to a head right here in South Africa.
The driver's will line-up on the grid against the back group of Table Mountain, and expect the Hansen brothers, Kevin and Timmy to fight all the way through the qualifying heats, semi-finals and finals in pursuit of the World RX title, but the Hansen's won't have it easy, as Monster Energy RX Cartel's Andreas Bakkerud is hungry for glory. Joining them on the grid is Bakkerud's teammate Liam Doran and Oliver Bennett (Xite Energy), all-rounders Timo Scheider and Guerlain Chicherit, Kevin Abbring, Anton Marklund, Cyril Raymond, and Krisztian Szabo to deliver mind-blowing action throughout.
In addition to the World RX spectacle, the RX2 International Series Champion will be crowned at the Killarney International Raceway as Oliver Eriksson vies for the RX2 title with Jesse Kallio and Ben-Philip Gundersen aiming to stop him.
Fans can expect a stunning support bill too, along with a broad selection of trackside activities throughout the weekend, with a special day and weekend deals as well as fly-in packages for out of town visitors.
