The RX2 International Series presented by Cooper Tires is the place for the sport’s brightest up-and-coming stars to showcase their skills, duelling doorhandle-to-doorhandle in identical 310bhp, four-wheel-drive Supercar Lites machinery.
RX2 replaced the successful RX Lites series in 2017, with its inaugural campaign witnessing some superb racing as the Petter Solbergs and Sebastien Loebs of the future took to the track to prove their prowess – invariably delighting the crowds of enthusiastic spectators.
As the leading support series to FIA World RX, RX2 will be coming to Speedmachine plus six of the 12 rounds on the World Championship calendar including Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Canada, France and concluding in South Africa.
Mirroring the successful World Championship format, race meetings comprise four head-to-head, short and sharp qualifying heats on mixed-surface dirt-and-asphalt circuits within amphitheatre-like venues. The top 12 drivers progress through to the knock-out semi-final stage, with the best six then advancing to the all-important final.
