World RX of Germany at the Nürburgring postponed

AS NÜRBURGRING ASSISTS DISASTER RELIEF EFFORT


The FIA and Rallycross Promoter GmbH have today confirmed that the World RX of Germany at the Nürburgring – scheduled to be the second and third rounds of the 2021 FIA World Rallycross Championship – will be postponed to the end of the season due to the ongoing effects of the recent flooding in the region.


The World Championship campaign will begin in Barcelona this weekend, and the Nürburgring event – a new addition to the series’ calendar – had been due to welcome World RX and the all-electric FIA RX2e Championship a week later, on 31 July - 1 August.


In response to the devastating effects of the floods, the Nürburgring has become a focal point of the rescue and recovery effort as a collection and distribution centre.


The rescheduled double-header will now act as the 2021 season finale over the weekend of 27-28 November. Existing tickets will remain valid for the new date.


This means the World RX of Sweden at Höljes will now become round two of the current campaign on 20-22 August.
