RX Lites Complete Inaugural Tests In İstanbul


RX Lites – a new feeder series to World RX focused around 310bhp cars supplied by rallycross specialists OlsbergsMSE – completed its first testing session at Istanbul Park (Turkey) last weekend.

RX Lites will run at a minimum of five World RX events in 2014, the first season of a multi-year agreement, and is designed to develop the rallycross stars of the future. The series will be run by marketing agency, First Corner.

Engineers reported that they were happy with the results of last weekend’s test sessions which were held at the former F1 circuit and which will also form the penultimate round of this year’s World Championship. The latest developments on handling, geometry and acceleration proved that RX Lites will be highly competitive this season.

The RX Lites will appear at the World RX season-opener in Montalegre, Portugal, from 3-4 May.
