The second round of the Latvian Rallycross Championship will be held on July 26, in Birži

As usual, also this summer, at Birži in Salas region will be buzzing with the roar of engines. Very soon, on July 26, the 2nd stage of the Latvian Rallycross Championship will take place at "Baroni" racetrack.

On July 4 and 5, the Latvian Rallycross Championship 2020 season started at the “Biķernieki” racetrack. Also this year, recognizable athletes will gather on the "Baroni" racetrack in Birži, Salas region, and will provide spectators with an active and motor sports-filled Sunday. Among the participants we will be able to see several drivers recognized in the world of Latvian motorsport. Also, we will be delighted by the local Jēkabpils athletes, who have proven themselves both in the seasons of the Latvian Rallycross, as well as in the stages of the Latvian Rallycross Championship in previous years.

In recent years, work has been done on the reconstruction and improvement of the route. Additional new elements were built, asphalt pavement was restored, jumps were renewed, thus expanding the use of the track.

The organizers of the event promise that the range of activities of this race day will be enriched not only by dynamic car races, but also other entertainment for both big and small. Between the races we will be surprised by shows specially prepared for the spectators.
