As the RallyX championship prepares to celebrate its tenth anniversary and the first of three registration periods comes to an end, promoter RX Promotion has confirmed a record number of drivers for the 2024 season.
As the early bird registration period for discounted entry fees concluded, no less than 94 drivers have already punched their ticket to the 2024 RallyX championship.
“Since registration opened on December 24th, we’ve had a record number of drivers enter the 2024 championship,” says Andreas Eriksson.
“For the first time in the history of the RallyX championship, we’ve passed the 90-driver mark in just a few days. This is a real success and I’d like to thank everyone involved in the championship for their commitment and for the confidence they have repeatedly shown in us to make our series a rallycross stronghold”.
While only 125 places are available for each RallyX event, more than 75% of the field has already secured their entry for the 2024 season.
“We still have two months to reach the target of 125 registered drivers and celebrate the tenth anniversary of the RallyX championship in the best possible way. We see excellent momentum in the Open 2WD category with 13 cars already entered. In CrossCar, no less than 18 juniors have sent in their entry forms, while the number of seniors has already reached 32. In Supercar Lites, we already have 15 cars, while in Open 4WD (Supercar), the 16-driver mark has already been reached, even though we know that many teams will be joining us over the next few weeks and are not yet included in this figure, so this list promises to grow rapidly”.
In total, no less than 11 nationalities are currently represented in the RallyX championship, but that number could grow as the second phase of entries is now open until March 15, 2024.
“We expect the last available places to be filled quickly,” says Andreas Eriksson.
“Our championship is developing at an incredible pace and it’s great for the tracks we work with to know that they can count on highly competitive line-ups. This tenth anniversary of the RallyX championship is definitely shaping up to be a great vintage. But our work doesn’t stop there. We’re going to use this opportunity to strengthen the position of our championship and thus lay a very good foundation for its future, which has never been more promising in the history of RallyX”.
