The organisers of World RX of Argentina, the final round of the 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship, have confirmed that the season-closer will take place in November at San Luis.


The event, which will run from November 28 to 29, will be based in the country’s Cuyo region as San Luis is set 400 kilometres south of Cordoba and 900 kilometres west of Buenos Aires.

“We are working hard on the World RX circuit and everything is looking very positive so far,” explained David Eli, World RX of Argentina’s championship promoter. “Our local authorities are very enthusiastic about Rallycross in Argentina and we know that the fans are delighted that the Championship has decided to include a round in South America.”

Martin Anayi, Managing Director of the FIA World Rallycross Championship for IMG Motorsport – a division of IMG, the global sport, fashion and media company – spoke positively about the new host city of San Luis.

“I recently visited Argentina and I am confident that San Luis has all the ingredients to make World RX of Argentina a fantastic event,” explained Anayi. “The race will form part of their Speed Week and the addition of World RX to the motorsport calendar will help boost tourism throughout the Cuyo region. We’ve also got an exciting broadcasting deal confirmed for World RX TV coverage in South America, which we are set to announce at our World Championship media day in Italy later this month.”
