The Covid protocol will allow a limited audience in the stadium stands
There is one month left until the start of the seventh edition of Catalunya RX, on July 23 and 24, at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. It is one of the motorsport competitions with the most adrenaline in Spain, since it offers more than 60 races in two days and a great atmosphere.
New format, same adrenaline
This 2021, the FIA World Rallycross Championship arrives in Catalunya with a new afternoon-night format. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will open its doors around 3pm. The stadium area will be the setting for the races of the first round of the 2021 World Championship until approximately 8:00 p.m. This new format allows the weekend to be very complete for all attendees. They will have the possibility to enjoy the morning of the Catalan environment, the city of Barcelona and its beaches, combined with an entertaining and fun motorsport session in the afternoon.
More than 60 races of four categories
Throughout Friday 23 and Saturday 24 July, the public will be able to enjoy more than 60 different races. The Catalunya RX 2021 will feature tests in four different categories: Supercars, RX3, RX2e – the new electric rallycross category – and an open Carcross race with Catalan drivers.
Some of the most prominent renowned drivers that fans will be able to see again live, after a year of hiatus without an audience due to Covid-19, are three-time world rallycross champion Johan Kristoffersson – who will participate in 2021, for first time, with an Audi S1 EKS RX quattro – and the Swedish brothers Timmy and Kevin Hansen. The German Timo Scheider, the Finn Niclas Grönholm or the Dutch Kevin Abbring also join the list. At the end of the month the final list of riders registered in the Catalunya RX 2021 will be made public.
