Oliver Webb and Abbie Eaton will return to TitansRX for the next two rounds of the 2019 season at MJP Arena in Fuglau, Austria (7-8 September).
The sportscar racing duo both made their series debuts during rounds three and four at Lydden Hill. Although neither had competed in rallycross prior to the UK event, both impressed throughout the weekend and won heat races.
“I'm really thrilled to be asked back to have another go at rallycross and at what looks like an incredible track,” said Eaton. “After my debut at Lydden Hill, jumping back in the car was all I thought about for weeks after!”
“I know the MJP Arena has much more gravel than Lydden Hill so I imagine it will take a little more time to get comfortable in the car again but I'm excited to learn the technique on how to get the most out of it whilst going sideways.!
“A massive thank you to all at TitansRX for the opportunity to have what should be another fun weekend of racing,” she added.
For Webb, the races in Austria will mark his third-consecutive race weekend in TitansRX behind the wheel of the Pantera RX6. Following his wildcard appearances at Lydden Hill, Webb was drafted in as a last-minute replacement for Hayden Paddon for the races in Montalegre, Portugal following the Kiwi’s heavy crash during testing for a planned World Rally Championship comeback last month.
“I’m so excited to be back in TitansRX and to get back on track in this beast,” said Webb. “It’s fuelled my excitement for watching rallycross all over the world and a wildcard entry at Lydden seems to be turning into a regular appearance. I can’t wait!”
