Chicherit inks World RX 2016 deal

Aug 102016

There’s simply no stopping Guerlain Chicherit. Building on his epic race programme last season; which included a double World RX feature, as well as an assault on the legendary Dakar Rally, the 38-year old Frenchman has confirmed that he will be back in the rallycross hot-seat for three rounds of this year’s FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Signing an exclusive deal with JRM Racing, Guerlain will take on the upcoming French (3/4 September), German (15/16 October) and Spanish (17/18 September) rounds of this year’s World RX series, at the wheel the British-based team’s fire spitting two-litre Mini RX Supercar.

"I'm really looking forward to racing in World RX with JRM again,” Guerlain said. “We've been exploring many options since Lohéac last year and initially spoke about doing the full FIA European Rallycross Championship in 2016. However, I decided to wait until the new engine was developed for JRM’s two cars. I hope to play my part in developing the car further so I can do a full championship season next year.


“The level of competition has increased again from 12 months ago with new teams and star drivers, so my expectations remain quite realistic: to enjoy my racing and the crazy atmosphere. I'm really looking forward to racing in front of my home crowd again, and can't wait to get in the car. I’ve still so much to learn in World RX but it's super exciting to be part of the show and to race alongside some pretty impressive names in motorsport."
