The FIA World Rallycross Championship 2015 is about to begin. The second season of this spectacular world championship will start in Portugal, in the circuit of Montalegre next April 24th. But this is only the beginning of a total of 13 rounds spread over three continents and 12 countries. See the full 2015 calendar.
Among the novelties of the second edition of World RX is the incorporation of Barcelona in the racing calendar. The event will be held between 18th and 20th September at the Circuit Barcelona – Catalunya. Spanish fans will enjoy for the first time a race of this kind live on stage, which is specially prepared to offer the best show. On the track will not only compete the regulars World RX pilots, such as Petter Solberg or Jacques Villeneuve, but in Barcelona, riders like Tanner Foust will give their best.
Will Petter Solberg conquere for the second time the title?
Petter Solberg, the first FIA World Champion Rallycross Championship 2014, will fight to win the title in each of the races, but it will be something really complicated. In his blog, he explained: “My main plan for 2015 is to defend my World RX title. It is guaranteed be difficult to win again in 2015, but we have a good and developed plan to do it, and this year’s World Championship gold made me even hungrier for success.”
