WHY ABU DHABI RX IS ONE YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS
The first race week of 2019 is upon us, with a whole load of unknowns as the action kicks off from the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. Here are seven reasons why Abu Dhabi RX is a must watch:
Start of an Exciting Season
There’s something new in every FIA World Rallycross Championship team for 2019, from cars to drivers. From now until November, over 10 rounds in the Middle East, Europe, North America and South Africa, 16 permanent drivers will take up the challenge of becoming the 2019 Drivers’ Champion, and six teams will battle for the Teams’ Championship.
First Trip to the Middle East
Since World RX was formed in 2014 it has visited Europe, Asia, North and South America, but until this season there has never been an event in the Middle East. That all changes this week as World RX heads to the United Arab Emirates Desert for round one.
Brand New Circuit
It will be a totally level playing field for all of the World RX teams and drivers next weekend as they blast into the 2019 season on the brand new Yas Marina Rallycross Circuit. The purpose-built 1.2 kilometre rallycross circuit comprises 63 per cent asphalt and 37 per cent gravel, a series of wide tarmac areas, tight turns including a hairpin and a daunting jump, all held within the circuit’s Formula 1 circuit stadium section.
First Night Race
World RX events have been held into early evening before, especially at Canada RX in 2014 when the whole event at the Grand Prix du Trois-Rivieres was run in a single day, but Abu Dhabi RX will be the first time a round of World RX has been held at night. The semi-finals and final on Saturday evening will be run under floodlights.
New World Champion
None of the permanent drivers in World RX 2019 have won an FIA World Championship title, meaning the race is on for any one of 16 drivers to become World RX’s fourth Drivers’ Champion this year.
Party Atmosphere Takes Over Abu Dhabi
Yas Marina Circuit will be transformed into a three-day festival featuring an Adrenaline Zone, food trucks and international artists performing at an after-race concert, where after the racing has finished, American hip hop group Migos will headline on Saturday.
The season is finally ready to kick off, and we’ll catch you live on Facebook from Friday 5th April! See you there!
