16 July    The RX2 International Series will take place over a single weekend at Nysum in Denmark. The move has been brought about by changes to the World RX schedule and the fact that RX2 is in its final seasion before being replaced by FIA’s new electric feeder category. “Clearly we are disappointed that RX2 could not continue to support the World Championship for its final season, but our first loyalty has to be to our competitors, and the calendar complications caused by COVID-19 meant it would no longer have been financially viable for them or their sponsors – particularly in the current economic climate,” said Jan-Erik Steen, CEO of series promoter, RX Promotion. The move to Nysum means the RX2 event will take place alongside round for of the RallyX Nordic Champiopnship.
