– BarcelonaRX has reached an agreement with the company Borregaard to carry out the maintenance of the gravel zone of the rallycross track with its product Dustex.
– The cooperation and use of Dustex will allow a significant reduction of dust in the gravel sections during the opening round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship 2017 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Barcelona, January 30th 2017
On April 1st and 2nd 2017 the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will host the inaugural event of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy. In order to have the rallycross circuit in perfect condition for this weekend, BarcelonaRX has reached an agreement with the Norwegian company Borregaard to use its Dustex product helping to reduce the dust.
Borregaard operates the world’s most advanced biorefinery. By using natural, sustainable raw materials, Borregaard produces advanced and environmentally friendly biochemicals and biomaterials that replace oil-based products. The Borregaard Group has 1080 employees in 16 countries.
Over the last few days, the maintenance team of the Circuit and BarcelonaRX has been working in the gravel area of the track. Dustex has been applied, a product based on a natural material extracted from wood, which is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. This product helps to keep the gravel compact and thus allows a significant dust reduction. During the week prior to the event, the team will keep working with Dustex to maintain the effectiveness of the product in preparation for the weekend, in which the gravel area will be watered with Dustex.
With this agreement, the BarcelonaRX continues for another year to work and improve the quality of the event, offering the best conditions of the track for both drivers and spectators. As a result, the drivers can offer a far greater rallycross experience and overall enjoyment for the spectators.
Tickets for the BarcelonaRX 2017 are now available at www.catalunyarx.com and www.circuitcat.com with attractive prices. Special packages for families and groups are also offered.
