Supercar Lites test to be held on 8 October at new Tierp Arena rallycross track in Sweden.
Drivers across motor sport invited to sample Lites machinery as raced in RX2, RallyX Nordic & ARX2
Expert tuition and at least two sessions of track running per driver for 400 Euros.
Olsbergs MSE in conjunction with JC Raceteknik and Team Faren is inviting prospective rallycross drivers to join its popular Supercar Lites test with expert tuition on Monday 8 October at the all-new Tierp Arena in Sweden.
The now well-established annual event is an excellent opportunity for drivers across motor sport harbouring a keen interest in rallycross to receive an introduction to the sport with a view to competing in the RX2 International Series presented by Cooper Tires and many other domestic championships that use the hugely-successful platform.
For only €400 (Euros), drivers will get behind the wheel of a 310BHP, four-wheel drive ‘pocket rocket’ as part of a comprehensive day of track running across at least two sessions, complete with expert guidance from a group of experienced instructors. Lunch will also be supplied.
In 2017, the test attracted participants from around the world with a wide variety of racing backgrounds, including karting, crosskart, folkrace and rallying, prompting a strong take up for a full season of racing in 2018.
Andreas Eriksson, RX2 Series CEO, commented: “Our Supercar Lites test has grown to become a successful annual event, one that has uncovered a number of drivers from across the motor sport spectrum with the skills and aptitude needed for a career in rallycross. With expert tuition and comprehensive track time available, it is a superb value opportunity for potential rallycross competitors to get a taste of these machines and seriously consider a career path towards RX2, RallyX Nordic, RallyX on Ice or ARX2 in the USA. Thank you to our partners, including JC Raceteknik and Team Faren, plus Cooper Tires and Tierp Arena for their contribution towards making this event possible.”
Interested parties are encouraged to book early as places are limited. Lower age limit 15 (turning 16).
