SEASON 2022

World Rallycross Championship

The FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX) is head-to-head short, sharp racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. High-profile drivers are equipped with all-electric RX1e cars which are fitted with twin power units that produce 500kW – equivalent to 680bhp – and 880Nm of instant torque. Since the series made its debut in 2014, World RX has raced at the world’s most iconic purposed-built rallycross circuits and specially adapted Formula One venues like the Nürburgring, Hockenheim and the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona. With the introduction of the electric era in 2022 came an exciting new race format, with a standing-start single-lap SuperPole shootout, heats, progression races, two semi-finals and one final – with up to five cars starting each race in a side-by-side grid formation.
