Euro RX grids taking shape as entry deadline looms

The grids for the 2024 FIA European Rallycross Championship (Euro RX1 and Euro RX3) and FIA RX2e Championship are beginning to take shape, featuring experienced heavy-hitters and exciting newcomers across the board.

With just three days to go until permanent entries close on 29 April – and a further ten days beyond that to make round-by-round registrations for the curtain-raising contest at Essay in France on 8-9 June – all signs point to another fiercely competitive campaign.

Already announced in Euro RX1 are Damian Litwinowicz – stepping up from his title-winning Euro RX3 season in 2023 to tackle the European Championship’s top-tier for the first time – father-and-son Attila and Márk Mózer and former ‘Rookie of the Year’ Sivert Svardal, who is eyeing a championship challenge after achieving his breakthrough victory last summer in Hell. Fellow giant-killing privateer Máté Benyó has similarly indicated his desire to return.

Fast Frenchman Fabien Pailler has confirmed that he will contest at least two rounds – Essay and Montalegre – and he will be joined on home soil by Dylan Dufas in Euro RX3, with the Caen native having won the category’s most recent event at Germany’s Estering last August. Dufas is fired-up to repeat that result in June, but he will need to overcome Nils Volland – the highest-placed championship returnee – amongst others if he is to seal back-to-back successes.

Rising American star Ellis Spiezia will head into battle in RX2e, with the all-electric series holding a number of test days to offer up-and-coming drivers a chance to get to grips with the ZEROID X1 and finalise its line-up for the season.

“We are very pleased with entries so far for Euro RX and RX2e in 2024,” commented Rallycross Promoter Managing Director, Arne Dirks. “The interest that has been shown is testament to the championships’ enduring appeal and the diverse and attractive calendar we have put in place for this season. We look forward to unveiling the full entry lists in due course.”

More drivers will be revealed over the coming weeks, so stay tuned to the World RX channels to keep abreast of all the latest news. The official entry list for round one of the Euro RX1 and Euro RX3 campaign at Essay will be published on 16 May, with RX2e following at a later date.
