BE LOUD, BE WILD, BE REAL! – Global Rallycross Europe kicks off
Europe‘s brand-new Rallycross Series GRC Europe presents itself at the world premiere of the one-make series car in Austria’s capital Vienna
In 2019, MJP Promotions run by World Rallycross driver and three-times Austrian Rallycross champion Max Pucher, will launch GRC Europe, an all-European Rallycross Championship with lots of action and high-calibre competition.
The spectacle of head-to-head racing on short, mixed surface tracks with over 500 HP road cars, accelerating faster than Formula One has enthralled fans all over the globe both at the typical stadium venues and in front of TV screens. It has in fact made Rallycross the world’s fastest growing motorsport!
The GRC Europe championship will field two categories, GRC Titans and GRC Supercars with 15 cars each. The GRC Titans series races a one-make Rallycross car, the PanteraRX6 developed and built by MJP Racing, which delivers FIA Supercar performance at a substantially lower cost. The PanteraRX6 will celebrate its world premiere at the series Kick Off in Vienna. The car will be available for driver testing shortly thereafter.
GRC Europe will host eleven races on classic Rallycross tracks in six events in England, Italy, Hungary, Germany or France, Austria and Slovakia. The calendar is still to be ratified by FIA. The inaugural season is set to run from May to October 2019. All event finals will be televised live on Eurosport, all races will be shown live on Eurosport Player free.
GRC Europe is a driver and team championship and world class drivers such as Alex Wurz and Toomas Heikkinnen will participate and meet you at the press conference. One third of the driver slots are already reserved. It is a unique opportunity both for upcoming and established Rallycross talents to further their career and get TV exposure. The unique TV show format of the two day sports event will provide substantial opportunity for sponsors to reach their audience and prospects. Similar Rallycross events attract far over 10.000 spectators at the race track.
