Under the bright lights and blistering heat of Yas Marina, the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship finally dropped its season start flag. But what’s in store, and where is it heading?
It’s been a tense winter since the championship wrapped in Cape Town last year. Manufacturer switch-outs, electrically charged questions, and debates over circuits were just a few of the tense topics that dominated the off-season debates. Thankfully as April rolled around and the confirmed Supercar teams hit the paddock in Abu Dhabi, the talk stopped, and then action amped-up.
A purpose built course awaited at Yas Marina, and set the tone for what could arguably one of the most exciting and divisive seasons in the history of World RX. In all, the action will be contested over a feature packed 10 rounds, spanning from Barcelona to Benelux and Sweden to South Africa.
