Arvika returns to RallyX Nordic schedule as next round of 2020 season.

The revised 2020 RallyX Nordic calendar has been confirmed, featuring upcoming events at Arvika in Sweden and Nysum in Denmark.
RallyX Nordic kick-started the international rallycross season at Höljes earlier this month, with the ‘All-Star’ Magic Weekend attracting the likes of two-time FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson, defending World RX champion Timmy Hansen, fellow World RX race-winner Niclas Grönholm, reigning Euro RX Champion Robin Larsson and five-time FIA World Rally Championship runner-up Thierry Neuville.

After the original RallyX Nordic schedule was disrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak, alternative dates and venues needed to be sourced, which has resulted in a welcome return to the fray for Arvika.
The Värmland County circuit last hosted the series in 2018 and has always generated spectacular racing. It will rejoin the calendar for a single-header event next month – a weekend that will also comprise the Swedish Championship (SM) final across all classes – before competitors head across the border to Nysum four weeks later for an eagerly-anticipated Danish double-header.
“We are delighted to be able to officially confirm the upcoming RallyX Nordic events,” said Jan-Erik Steen, CEO of RX Promotion. 

“Arvika has long been a RallyX Nordic favorite, and it is great to be going back there again after a year away. With a willingness on both sides to make something happen, it did not take long to reach an agreement. Similarly, we are grateful to the organizers at Nysum for working so closely with us to fix an alternative date after government restrictions made the original one impossible.
“NEP set a new standard for live rallycross broadcasts at Höljes, and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for fans at Arvika and Nysum. In times like these, you need to think ‘outside-of-the-box’ and do things differently. That is what we did with the ‘All-Star’ Magic Weekend, and we look forward to building upon that momentum over the coming weeks and months. There is plenty more exciting news still to come – so watch this space!”
