FIA World Rallycross Heads to Cape Town
As a track event that sees cars racing on the tarmac and on a dirt section while doing incredible and breathtaking ramps and jumps, the FIA World Rallycross of South Africa is making its way to the Killarney International Raceway on October 7th and 8th for the penultimate round of the season.
Fans can expect two exhilarating, action-packed days at the FIA World Rallycross event in Cape Town, which will feature all-electric rallycross vehicles for the first time. Reputable world champion drivers like Johan Kristoffersson and the Hansen brothers will also compete.
For the sake of reference, the race made its debut in 2017 at Killarney Raceway and returned to the same facility in 2019. It’s organised by the same team that introduced Formula E to the Mother City in February this year.
“I am delighted to announce that we are bringing another World Championship Motorsports event to South Africa. This time none other than the fabulous all-electric World Rally Cross, to be staged over two days at Killarney race circuit. A stunning ‘next up’ after our Formula E Cape Town race in February this year”, says Iain Banner, Chairman of World RX of SA.
With the event featuring all-electric vehicles for the first time, it marks a significant step in the sport’s journey towards sustainability, especially as electrification becomes a focal point in the automotive sector.
