Video: From Italy we understood that former WRC star Gigi Galli is preparing himself for the WorldRX round of Franciacorta. The official Galli Facebook has published a video clip that is hiding almost everything from a test the Italian conducted on September 9. However, rumours have it that he was in Sweden to test a Ford Fiesta SuperCar for his native WRX round, to be held on September 27 and 28. Click here to find the video clip: Galli’s video clip on Facebook.

FIA: Only a few days after Briton Kevin Procter debuted his brand-new Ford Fiesta Mk7 [based on a Super2000 car] with 1760cc engine at Lohéac the following news was spread out from the FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) in Beijing: “The minimum weight of a SuperCar in Rallycross will be set at 1,300kg, as of 1 January 2016 (no matter the cylinder capacity of the engine).” Thereby the idea of running a downsized engine to get a weight advantage of currently 90kg has been spoiled, at least after the running and the 2015 season. However, who knows as if in 2016 the maximum cylinder capacity of a turbocharged engine for Rallycross SuperCars will still be 2058cc [plus the so-called turbofactor 1.7 = 3498.6cc]…
