The entry list for the 2019 RallyX on Ice CrossCar class has been revealed with a multiple World RX round winner among the high-quality line-up.
Thirteen drivers will compete for the CrossCar ‘ice crown’ this season, which for the first time comprises three rounds held over an action-packed week-long festival in Are, Sweden.
Fresh from the announcement it will compete in the newly-formed RallyX Nordic CrossCar class this season, Yellow Squad by Hansen makes its race debut in Are with a two-car entry.
With defending RallyX on Ice SRX champion Kevin Hansen taking the helm as manager, Julius Ljungdahl and Timmy Hansen will assume driver duties.
Eighteen-year-old Ljungdahl targets the title driving the seasoned Speedcar machine, with five-time World RX round winner Hansen driving the team’s new generation TN5 XC CrossCar as part of a development drive for the season ahead.
The line-up is bolstered further by Speedy Motorsport’s “CsuCsu”, who makes a welcome return to the RallyX Nordic ranks following his impressive run to the Supercar final in Kouvola last year, while 2018 SRX runner-up Isac Egonsson competes for glory, while Ole Henry Steinsholt is another returning to the ice this year with a view to securing glory.
