Latvian Rallycross Championship goes beyond national borders - in the third round we will meet in Lithuania, Vilkyčiai

A two-day rallycross marathon will take place in Lithuania on August 15 and 16. The Latvian and Lithuanian championships will start on Saturday, but on the second day of the competition NEZ Baltic Rallycross. Competition will unite the best rallycross pilots from the Baltics and Northern Europe.

 

Jānis Bergs, organizer of the Latvian Rallycross championship: “Every year we try to offer athletes new opportunities to test their driving skills. We have included a stage outside Latvia in the calendar of the 2020 competition season, for the first time the Latvian championship will take place in Vilkyčiai, Lithuania. The track of the neighboring country is licensed by the FIA (Federation Internationale de I’Aitomobile) and there have also been competitions at European level in the past, so we are convinced that the decision to organize round there has been the right one. Next week's round will be the third of the four planned for this season, time is flying fast, but we are preparing for the powerful end of the season, which will take place at the beginning of September on the legendary Mūsa track in Bauska - as usual, we will combine all cross-country disciplines.”
