Bikernieki, which was constructed in 1966, is the most multi-functional racetrack in the Baltic region and has accommodated various motorsport events over the years including drag racing, drift, karting and speedway. In preparation for the new Latvian RX round, a new state-of-the-art rallycross track will be built.
Latvia, situated in Northern Europe, is located in the middle of the Baltic States, and shares the border not only with Lithuania and Estonia, but also Russia and Belarus. Since 2004 Latvia is part of European Union (Schengen country) and NATO. With population just around 2 million people, Latvia is one of the smallest, but certainly one of the welcoming members of EU – an average citizen of Latvia will speak three languages: Latvian, Russian and English or German.
