19-01-15 RallyX Nordic
confirms venue for 2019 season finale
The countdown to the 2019 RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires season
is underway with official confirmation the Tierp Arena in Sweden will
once more play host to the final round of the year.
To be held on 21 - 22 September, the Tierp Arena is scheduled to conclude
the biggest and most international RallyX Nordic season in its history.
The venue, located 120km outside Stockholm, made its debut on the RallyX
Nordic schedule in 2018 where 7,700 spectators watched Oliver Solberg
crowned champion in a dramatic three-way title showdown.
Characterised by its unique drag strip style straights hinged
by a tight and tricky hairpin, Tierp Arena is upgrading its purpose-built
gravel rallycross track to improve the consistency and quality of the
surface without compromising its challenging nature.
Ian Davies, RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires Series Manager, said:
Designing and building an entirely new rallycross track from scratch
brings its challenges and indeed we encountered issues that needed to
be addressed for this year. However, there is a lot to be said for the
way problems are tackled and the response from Tierp Arena has been professional
and thorough. Together with its excellent facilities, unique viewing points
and convenient location, then the Tierp Arena is the ideal venue to conclude
what is shaping up to be a standout season.
Urban Axelsson, Tierp Arena CEO, added: It was an honour to host
such a thrilling finale on our RallyX Nordic debut and we are doubly as
excited to be doing so again this year. We have taken the feedback from
teams and drivers into account and we are putting it to action to ensure
the track is better quality and much more suitable for the drivers. In
addition, new fences and other decorative elements will be placed along
the track in order to give it a sharper silhouette, well introduce
a VIP facility and the popularity of the camping area means well
open it up for the Friday as well. Were also looking into providing
seating closer to the starting area to ensure the event is as spectator
friendly as it can possibly be.
The 2019 RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires season will comprise
seven rounds held over six events across five countries, including for
the first time Latvia and a visit to the Bikernieki circuit in central
The season kicks off on May 17-19 with the series first-ever double-header
event at iconic Holjes, before travelling to Nysum in Denmark for round
two, followed by Riga, Norway (venue TBC) and Kouvola in Finland. The
teams will then return to Sweden in September for the Tierp Arena final
Prior to that, the 2019 RallyX on Ice slides into action in March in an
exciting, new-look festival format with three rounds run over six days
at the Åre ski resort in Sweden.
Held across 18 23 March close to the Holiday Club SPA Hotel where
a raft of off-track activities with accompany the spectacular racing action,
the festival will use a different layout with each round to keep the racing
challenging before this year's rallycross snow star is crowned.
