WRX 2015: Finland dropped

Category: News, WRX Posted 29.08.14 11:20 by

World RX of Finland will not be included as a round of the 2015 FIA World Rallycross Championship.


The decision was made due to a congested calendar in 2015 after the inclusion of events such as Spain RX at the Barcelona F1 circuit and meant that IMG Motorsport was forced to exercise the break in its promoter agreement with AKK Sports for the Finnish round of World RX. IMG Motorsport welcomes the opportunity to work with AKK Sports on future events in Finland and discussions are already underway to explore the prospect of a new venue in the country from 2016 onwards.

Martin Anayi, World RX Managing Director for IMG Motorsport, explained: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the AKK Sports and I would like to reinforce the point that we rate them as one of our top promoter partners. It is very unfortunate that they drop from the calendar in 2015 as the AKK Sports have been extremely professional and it has been a joy working with such a knowledgeable and experienced team. I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again in the future as we will be looking to the AKK Sports to help consult on potential new events in the World RX calendar.”

The full calendar for the 2015 FIA World Rallycross Championship will be announced later this year.
