Dirt, jumps, tyre-smoking asphalt, elevation changes, and tight tyre-wall lined turns. If ever there was a checklist of challenges for the new-era of World RX circuits, then Barcelona RX’s intense F1 mash-up stadium track surely hits them all. Mix that with just over 28,000 fans, a pack of Supercars, and a weekend of brilliant sunshine, and you have the recipe for an epic session of fire spitting racing. Enter the 2016 World RX of Spain.
While it was all bright smiles, and cold cans in the packed grandstands lining the purpose built rallycross track, for many of the teams rolling into World Rallycross’ second ever comp in Spain; the Barcelona weekender will surely go down as one of the most challenging and action packed events this year.
