After almost a month of a break, RX Lites action is about to wow all the fans once again.

Supporting event for FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy, RX Lites is ready for its first outing on non-European, Trans-Atlantic experience.
Annual Grand Prix Trois-Rivieres, aka GP3R, will host World RX and RX Lites in Montreal-Quebec, Canada on 8th of August, Friday.
The weekend promises a whole package of Motorsports Festival including Canadian NASCAR and Touring Car rounds along with top class rallycross action.

GP3R, on its 45th year will witness the most wanted encounter of RX Lites Season of 2014.

Current leader of the series, Kevin Eriksson at the steer of his RX Lites has already shown how competitive and fast he can be on previous events.
After winning the 4th round in his home soil Höljes, Sweden, Kevin clinched his power on leaderboard.

16 years old American Mitchell DeJong, surprised most of the RX Lites fans back in Lydden Hill, UK where he brought his front bumper to service park even without a piece of dust.
Mitchell is back on entry list for GP3R and he is experienced enough to force the top of the podium once again.

Another Swedish young star Kevin Hansen Jr is now on 5th place of the season standings with the points he collected from only 2 rounds back in Finland and Sweden.
He managed to win on his first ever RX Lites event in Finland and also placed himself at the second step of the podium after losing the battle with Kevin Eriksson on the very last lap in Sweden.

These 3 young and talented men will be front-runner names of the race day in GP3R, at the most expected and awaited encounter of the season.

Despite their names are shouted out so often, it will definitely not be easy to grab the treasure for sure. Patrik Sandell, supercar driver in more than one championship, will be driving an RX Lites and he is one of the favourite names for the podium.

Colombian Alejo Fernandez is also back in RX Lites entry list since his first appearance at the season-opener round in Montelegre, Portugal.
Oliver Eriksson, Canadian driver Garret Grist, American rallycross drivers Tyler Benson and Austin Cindric, and French Formula 1 Commentator for Canal+ Julien Febreau are completing the list for GP3R.

As a supporting event, RX Lites season is attracted enormous amount of fans more than it was expected since it has equal conditions on the track and driving skills are the key to win.
After four rounds, four different names are recorded at the top of the podium. Only this can prove how hard the competition is running out on RX Lites season.
