World Rallycross R7 - Höljes, Sweden

Ekstrom has WRX and DTM clash for Höljes weekend. Sounds like DTM and IMG have fallen out over Hockenheim and WRX playing second fiddle, but hope to see Mattias compete in the rallycross that weekend.

A few surprises in the entry lists. Never thought OMSE and the Eriksson's would enter.

Eriksson probably still has umpteen Fiesta's lying around that he cant sell.

Plus has about 15 kids!!

I wrote this on RallycossRX account: 57 SuperCars makes this one of the few RX rounds worth the travel! Much better than the crappy entries of Mettet and Lydden which aren't even worth travelling from the Netherlands. (The Scandinavian crowd would never accept the level the Belgians and British get)

The only 16 cars idea by IMG of the beginnings of the takeover seems farther away then ever. I wonder why.

It wasn't an idea really, they have just copied many things from speedway.

I think OMSE have done a pretty good job of off-loading Fiestas to be honest. Seems like more and more people are running them. Andreas is a very savvy businessman

Both sons are now racing and doing well.

They never look to handle at all well, I certainly would nit buy one.

Since it is IMG running the speedway, it wasn't a copy. It was a blueprint of a success. It was also in the proposal that the FIA won over to hand over the keys of the ERC to IMG. And in all the original press releases up until very near the first season they actually ran. It was in all the paperwork they used to win over the clubs and tracks. Not just 'an idea'. It was THE road to go.

Of course it was a copy, doesn't matter if IMG ran it already. Their original plan with 16 cars, five heats and everybody meeting each other once was scrapped fortunately.

The rise of rallycross isn't down to IMG's system either, it is down to their promotion. Just because they made it more like speedway didn't translate into its success, their promotion meant success.

And what do you mean with "win over the clubs and tracks"?

Well, the clubs and or tracks were invited to pay very very large amounts of money (relative to what they are/were able to make in a year) and give up a large portion of their freedom to join the WRX by IMG in order to step into the 'big unknown'. So they had to be won over, övertala in Swedish

Yeah okay, didn't understand what you meant first.

They really screw over organisers and tracks.

They do

But it is the tracks chouce.

A lot of them like Valkenswaard, Poland, Czecho and Belgium, Hjungary KNEW they could never make the maths work with the insane prices.

So juts left ther series.

What they are doing is literally selling their dates for money to anyone that will buy them.

That's why they went to pointless places like Turkey, Argentina, Canada. Partly so they can qualify for being a world championship, and partly as they were the only people that wanted to pay.

It is the same precedent that is used in F1 and goes all the way down to speedway, WTCC< Superbike.

It's garbage, but it is the tracks chocie, and thankfully our old tracks did not take the risk, or they would have been put out of business. Lydden possibly could be too, but they paid initially

Real shame that Mattias won't be racing. As much as I want to see races settled through outright pace and not mechanical issues, a part of me hopes that Johan has a bad weekend in order to keep the Championship points close.

With no Ekstrom though, what are the odds of a PSRXVW 1-2?
