South Africa to Host Final Round of the World FIA World Rallycross Championship

South Africans are set for a blockbuster race when the FIA World Rallycross Championship goes down to the wire at the Killarney International Raceway, Cape Town on 9 & 10 November in the title decider and season finale of the SABAT World Rallycross of South Africa.

The World Rallycross gladiators arrive in the Cape to end off a year of gruelling all-wheel drive battles - with only one point separating Timmy Hansen, the Swede driving for Team Peugeot-Hansen, and Andreas Bakkerud, the Norwegian signed with Liam Doran's Monster Energy RX Cartel team.

The 400kw supercars are capable of accelerating at 100km/h in under two seconds, faster than an F1 car, and will compete on the mixed dirt and asphalt Cape Town amphitheater RX track.

“Fans can also expect a stunning supporting bill, along with a broad selection of track-side activities in and around the Fan Zone throughout the weekend, including live entertainment, displays and exhibitions, making the SABAT World RX of South Africa an all-round, action filled weekend for adrenaline junkies, race fans and families,” said Corne Strydom, Sales and Marketing Executive at AutoX, manufacturer and distributor of SABAT Batteries in South Africa.

Tickets are already on sale on Quicket and options include one-day or two-day grass embankment and grandstand options as well as family and group tickets sale options or enjoy the race from our Budweiser Track-side bar or Premium VIP Track-side Hospitality.

What is Rallycross?

Rallycross is a combination of rallying and circuit racing. It is head-to-head short, sharping racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. High profile drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than two seconds.
