Tickets on sale for World RX of Benelux at Mettet

Tickets are now on sale for World RX of Benelux at Mettet on 17-18 August, with an enticing weekend of exhilarating action in prospect at the popular Circuit Jules Tacheny as the FIA World Rallycross Championship’s new ‘Battle of Technologies’ begins.

Top-flight international rallycross returned to Mettet last summer following an absence of five years, and 12 months on, fans can look forward to a double dose of entertainment from the headlining World RX act, as well as a full complement of support series in the shape of the FIA RX2e Championship and the FIA European Rallycross Championship’s Euro RX1 and Euro RX3 categories.

The innovative ‘Battle of Technologies’ concept will pit the pioneering electric RX1e cars directly against their sustainably-fuelled RX1 combustion counterparts for the first time, setting the scene for an intriguing duel as the sport plots a path towards a more environmentally-friendly future while preserving its key DNA – raw adrenaline.

There are a variety of ticket options, with adult Sunday admission on sale for €50 – rising to €60 for the full weekend. There are reduced rates for juniors aged from 12 to 17, with children aged 11 and under admitted free of charge.

Camping slots are available at a supplement of €26 per person, granting access to the campsite from 12:00 CET on Friday, 16 August until 10:00 CET on Monday, 19 August.
