Timmy Hansen: It's an all new territory for World RX. I think the South Africans are going to love our sport; fast cars and tough battles! And as it is the final race of the World Championship I'm hoping to leave Cape Town with that ultimate prize in hand!
Andreas Bakkerud: As a rallycross enthusiast and also a driver I love showing WorldRX to a new crowd. 0 - 100 kilometers in less then two seconds is crazy and I'm sure the people in South Africa will love it! I'm also bringing a bunch of #BakkerudBLUE supporters to Cape Town to make sure that they learn the correct supporter songs first! Ha.
Kevin Hansen: Finally a FIA World Championship is back in South Africa! To finish off the 2017 championship in Cape Town will be a true diamond in the season calendar. I believe the crowd will go nuts when they see their first World RX race, and especially when it's the season finale, everyone wants to win it! See you in November, Cape Town!
Petter Solberg: "I expect South Africa to become a fantastic event. What more would a motorsport loving crowd want than a full World RX display of the roughest and fastest cars on the planet racing each other? I will for sure be there fighting for the season finale win!"
A weekend of exhilarating wheel-to-wheel race action on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt), the FIA World Rallycross Championship delivers serious indulgence for fans of speed and cars. High profile drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than two seconds – faster than a Formula One car.
Killarney International Raceway, Cape Town, will host the World RX season-closer and bring rallycross to the continent of Africa for the first time.
With superstar drivers including Sebastien Loeb, Petter Solberg, Mattias Ekstrom and Ken Block on track and entertainment throughout the weekend in the fanzone including an exclusive flying display, this is one event you cannot miss!
