Entries to open on Sunday for revamped RallyX Nordic series

13.03.2018: • RallyX Nordic revving up for ‘biggest and best’ season to-date • Increased prize money, television exposure

•    RallyX Nordic revving up for ‘biggest and best’ season to-date

•    Increased prize money, television exposure and track time

•    Six-round schedule to visit sport’s traditional Nordic heartlands

Entries for the revitalised RallyX Nordic series will open this Sunday (18 March), with the promise of a challenging four-country calendar, more track and television time for competitors and prize money for the championship top three.

Excitement is building towards RallyX Nordic’s eagerly-anticipated 2018 campaign, which has received the official sanctioning of the FIA Northern European Zone (NEZ) as it speeds towards a seminal season in its history.

Reacting to competitor feedback, series organisers have implemented a raft of changes designed to evolve and enhance the overall package.

The new-look format will provide entrants with more track time than ever before, with three semi-finals when numbers allow to ensure as many competitors as possible enjoy their time in the spotlight and their opportunity to shine in front of the camera.

Television deals are currently being finalised and will be announced in due course, with the action set to rev into life at legendary FIA World Rallycross Championship venue Höljes. The series will return to Sweden for its finale at new purpose-built track Tierp, just an hour north of Stockholm.

The action will be split into two classes – Supercar and Supercar Lites – with the outright top three in each being rewarded with prize money at the end of the campaign.

“We have left no stone unturned over the winter in our efforts to make RallyX Nordic even more attractive to potential drivers, teams and sponsors, with the 2018 season set to be the biggest and best to-date,” said Series Manager Ian Davies.

 “We asked our customers and partners what they wanted to see, and we have listened to their responses and most importantly acted upon them.

“With the official support of the FIA Northern European Zone, RallyX Nordic is a burgeoning international series with its base firmly rooted in rallycross’ Nordic heartlands.

“Better still, with the hugely popular recent RallyX on Ice series, competitors can now race year-round in all conditions, and we look forward to seeing many of those who ‘warmed up’ in the snow return to the track for the first round of RallyX Nordic at Höljes. As one of the sport’s most iconic and historic venues, it will be a spectacular place to start the season.”
