Registration is officially open for the 2020 edition of RallyX on Ice presented by Cooper Tires in Luleå on 28 March, with 24 places available in the Supercar Lites and Supernational classes, and 18 on offer in the CrossCar/Crosskart category.
In recent years, RallyX on Ice has firmly established itself as the discipline’s must-attend season curtain-raiser, with its ever-growing status seeing it welcome the likes of FIA World Rallycross Championship superstars Timmy Hansen and Andreas Bakkerud as well as US racing heroes Josef Newgarden and Hélio Castroneves.
Indeed, RallyX on Ice invariably attracts the crème de la crème of driving talent – all eager to claim pre-season bragging rights – with hundredths if not thousandths-of-a-second determining the results and spectacular sideways slides guaranteed.
In 2020, fans watching trackside will be treated to not only some of the fastest and most fearless rallycross drivers around, but also a raft of other sports within the framework of SM-veckan, Sweden’s high-profile ‘Winter Olympics’, which incorporates everything from biathlon and cross-country skiing to dog-sledding, Alpine slalom, jiu-jitsu and powerlifting.
That means a capacity crowd will be gathered downtown in Luleå on 28 March to watch all of the action on a purpose-built track on the frozen Lule River on Sweden’s northern coast. What’s more, with extensive live coverage of the ‘business end’ of the event on Swedish national television – complemented by a comprehensive livestream on SVT Play – competitors will truly be showcasing their skills to the largest possible audience.
Run in conjunction with the Swedish Automobile Sports Federation, Svensk Bilsport, the single-day event will be preceded by official test days and will feature three competitions – for Supercar Lites, Supernational and CrossCar/Crosskart. All entrants will be eligible to win the coveted RallyX on Ice titles, while the Swedish Championship crowns will be contested between drivers in possession of a Swedish licence.
Entry fees are 5,000 SEK (c. €470) for Supercar Lites – which includes a place in the paddock tent – or 2,500 SEK (c. €235) for the Supernational and CrossCar/Crosskart classes. All applications must be received by midday Swedish time on Sunday, 23 February, with places to be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Competitors should register at Anmälan Luleå ms City Race. Enquiries can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
