EURO RX Entry lists 2019 revealed

The permanent competitor entry lists for the FIA European Rallycross Championships have been revealed by the FIA.



The Euro RX Supercar Championship features 13 drivers representing eight nationalities. Additionally, there are a number of drivers who have already lodged round-by-round entries for various events. 
 



Meanwhile, in Super1600, 23 permanent drivers from 11 nationalities will battle for the 2019 title.
 


The FIA European Rallycross Championship for Supercar and FIA European Rallycross Championship for Super1600 will each take place over six rounds – five of them in support of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy. They both feature a stand-alone event at Germany’s historic Estering.
 


In Euro RX Supercar, Robin Larsson, the 2014 Euro RX Supercar Champion, and winner of the World RX of Argentina in 2015, will have strong claims on the title. The Swede raced for the Olsbergs MSE team in World RX last season, and this year competes for JC Raceteknik in an ex-EKS Audi S1.
 


France’s Jean-Baptiste Dubourg, who was fifth in the standings last year, returns in a Peugeot 208. ‘JB’, who was a podium finisher in the 2015 World RX of France, claimed his fourth consecutive Andros Trophy title this winter, driving for his family’s DA Racing team.


 
JB finished on the podium in the opening round of Euro RX last year in a Renault Clio, the cars being used by the GCK Academy team in World RX this year. He is joined by younger brother Andrea, also in a Peugeot 208.
 


The ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport boss, Rene Muennich will alternate his duties between overseeing Timo Scheider in the team’s World RX entry with piloting a Seat Ibiza in Euro RX Supercar alongside German compatriot Mandie August.
 


Muennich, a regular Euro RX driver, won the TCR Middle East Championship in the winter.
 


Peter Hedstrom, a multiple Swedish Rallycross Champion, will drive a VW Polo alongside fellow-Swede Daniel Thoren for Hedstroms Motorsport.
 


Finland’s Mikko Ikonen will be one to watch. He steps up from the Finnish Championship, where he was second in 2018, and will be at the wheel of the Ford Fiesta which took Latvia’s Reinis Nitiss to the title in 2018.
 


Hungary’s Attila Mozer makes the switch from Audi to a Peugeot 208 for Nyriad Motorsport while Ales Fucik swaps last year’s Skodia Fabia for a VW Polo for Czech team KRTZ Motorsport. Hungarian Karai Tamas Karai, in an Audi A1, is likely to be in the mix.
 


Super1600 similarly boasts a six-event schedule, beginning at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya before moving on to Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium – a new addition to the World RX calendar – Holjes, Estering, Loheac and Riga.



The 2018 title winner Rokas Baciuska graduates to World RX with ESmotorsport – Labas GAS, opening the way for a new champion in 2019. Russia’s Aydar Nuriev in the Volland Racing Audi A1 will look to go one better than his running-up position from last season.
 


Having debuted the Audi A1 in 2018, Volland Racing expands to a five-car entry this season.
 


Fellow Volland Racing squad member Gergely Marton of Hungary and Josef Susta of the Czech Republic, fourth and fifth in the standings respectively last season, are likely to race at the sharp end in 2019.
