World Rallycross Championship 2016

First bit of news for the 2016 season, Latvia will be added to the Championship in 2016:

Does this mean more rounds for 2016, or are some of the current round(s) going to get the chop?

One big driver means any country gets a round! Latvia is really into motorsport at the moment, they have some big rallies and are massively into motocross.

No surprise at all that having a few drivers they get a round, it seems to be the golden ticket to get rounds rather than any level of interest or popularity.

And having a promoter who is of course happy to hand over the tens of thousands in hosting fees for the Scandinavian (world) rally cross series

I think that it will involve significantly less travelling than Portugal for the scandanavia drivers (most of which will be via a ferry) who make up about 70% of the grid. Not ideal for Brits or the French of course. But the track looks good and Riga is a very fun weekend away

How many rounds in 2016 then? Will Hockenheim be on the calendar in 2016? Finland Kouvola make a return? One in one out? Africa, Asia or Australasia?

Question 1: IMO they better stick with a total of 12.
Question 2: I bet IMG is still interested. Wonder if DTM or Hockenheim is...
Question 3: http://www.fiaworldrallycross.com/ar...ropped-in-2015
With Latvia in I guess the chance for Finland (even with a new venue) is smaller now...
Question 5: I expect Australia to join in 2017.

I would think the tracks signed up now have had to sign a multi year deal. They will see if its worth it then either drop out or sign up again for a no doubt bigger fee.

So I guess Germany might still have two, doing all that groundwork would have cost a bit. But IMG will not wnat two german roudns, they would prefer Kenya or something stupid like that where they cal seel cameras and diabetes in a can.

FThere were supposed to be racing in Oz this year were they not? But hasnt it floundered?

I'm afraid not. As great as the track itself is, the non-paved paddock is relatively small and facilities would need some expensive upgrades.

Looks like Andrew Jordan won't be making a full time move to rallycross any time soon:

I very much doubt he would want to commit to rallycross until much later in his life to be honest

I think he sees his future in a far bigger series like DTM or perhaps sports cars.

He loves rallycross, but realistically only did it initially because it allowed him to compete at a younger age, time was on his side and he enhoyed it so much he decided to move into the top levels, won at a canter and moved on.

For me his best bet right now in rallycross is to oust the "the non voice of rallycross" and be the sole commentator as he does a much, much better job.

Honestly a talent that good should be in something bigger like DTM or sportscars. BTCC is about the best he can do in the UK.

He was racing a National Hot Rod last month at Ipswich with some other BTCC guys, did OK as you might expect.

For me it looks like a KIA Rio. Maybe for World RX 2016?
