For the time being, the rallycross new RallyCross Europe series, which will be launched next year, is currently known for two of the races included in the Global Rallycross Europe series. The Montalegre of Portugal, who has been eliminated from the Rallicross World Championship, and England’s Lydden Hill, the rookie called Rallycross, will be shown at the GRC in the 2019 competitive season.
In the Rallicross Global Rallycross Europe series, there will be a total of 10 races during the six competitive weekends in 2019 and all will be broadcast live on Eurosport channels. The champion is crowned at the end of the season in October. The calendar of competitions has not yet been announced, but two stages are already known. 27 to 28. July will be held in England’s Lydden Hill and 10-11. August in Montalegre, Portugal.
– Lydden Hill and Montalegre Cup by getting the calendar was not an easy task, but I am pleased that we succeeded in it. The goal of MJP Promotions is to give fans the best features of rallycross. According to classics, access to the GRC series is an important part of this work. Soon we will be able to announce all the 2019 World Championships, Max J. Pucher, CEO of the series, in the press release.
The Montalegre course was part of the rally of the World Series of Rally Championships in 2014-2018 and for the first three months of the World Championship it was the venue for the opening competition, but the FIA and the IMG promoter IMG were no longer involved in the 2019 race calendar. The track at Lydden Hill is especially known for running the first rallycross race in history. At Lydden Hill, the World Series Championship was run in 2014-2017, until this year’s race calendar took place in Silverstone.
GRC will compete in two classes, GRC Titans and GRC Supercars. In the future, the Global Rallycross series will be expanded to other continents, and from 2020 onwards, the GRC series of different continents will launch a joint Global Finale competition, crowned by the Global Rallycross Cup champion. Global Rallycross brand rights are owned by Austrian MJP Promotions.
– I know that GRC will play a big role in the world of rallycross in the future. And now that we can release Lydden Hill and Montalegre for the next season, it’s great to see how in a short time the strategic goals of GRC Europe are realized one at a time, Atte Varsta, the global leader of Global Rallycross Europe.
