World Rallycross Championship 2020

Yes, the current season is yet to finish, but an (almost) full calendar announcement today, so seemed about the right time for a new thread.

World Rallycross 2020:

I'm assuming that the July round is going to be Silverstone? The SpeedMachine website says 2020 ticket info 'coming soon' and it still has WRX branding on there so 2+2 = July Silverstone?

It cant be the July date as that is the confirmed F1 date for Silverstone. I Pray to god that it has died at Silverstone, a pure money grabbing exercises at at track no one likes.

That date in July is the F1 weekend at Silverstone and I can't imagine World RX being there the same weekend?

More likely to be the September "TBC" date? But then I wonder if September is Riga, with the financial issue causing that to be a TBC?

Silverstone was far from a great circuit, but it gave us a UK round and, for that reason alone, it is a shame if it's gone...

...part of me hopes that one of the "TBC" is Lydden, though I think that is highly unlikely.

Forgive the double post, but the latest article on the Autosport site...

https://www.autosport.com/wrx/news/1...trois-rivieres

...suggests that World RX definitely won't be in the UK this year and confirms that the new circuit at the Nurburgring will be based in the Mullenbachsleife area.*

I doubt it is going to be in the UK.

It might be Silverstone, but I doubt Speedmachine or whatever it was has made much money, wasn't the whole thing funded and generated by WRX and their commercial people? I would guess even the track might have been part funded by them?

It was built to fail in my eyes, too dusty, too small.

I just doubt Lydden, even that place is a shadow of its former self and is nearly all hard surface now.

Yea it is a shame there will be no UK round, Lydden was great but when you consider that I live 30 miles from Silverstone, it was cheaper for me to get the train then bus to Brands Hatch for the FIA Masters Historic and back again for same price as on the gate ticket price to Speedmachine! That's why i never went. Hopefully either World or Euro are back soon. On the plus side, at least Hell & Holjes have survived for now.

Both Höljes and Hell got four years left on their respective contracts, although Hell have been struggling financially. Recently the head of the organisation and other key people went to Oslo seeking 5 million NOK in state funds, or ca 488 000€ in current value.

Some rumor was that WorldRX could head to Russia (Igora Drive?), choice could also Kymi Ring.

Ah - hadn't checked the F1 calendar

Looks like no UK round then - I guess the speedmachine website will just die and it'll never be mentioned again......

There are only four though. Höljes got great attendance and is pretty much allowed to stay because of it, Loheac was basically just brought back due to its attendance and Hell is the only place in Norway they can compete. Montalegre I dont know about but they also got decent attendance.

Forgive the double post but, in a interview during the South Africa qualifying four coverage, they stated that the two TBA rounds for 2020 are one old venue and one new venue: Russia and Latvia?
