2015 WorldRX Season’s first Media gathering was held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Teams were present at the venue for a press conference and media members had chance to interview with the drivers and also had photo-shoot sessions.

Last year’s one of the leading contenders Kevin Hansen Jr was present at the Media Launch with his RX Lites and some of the selected guests was lucky enough to join him on a co-drive activity.

RX Lites 2015 season will start later this month in Montalegre, Portugal. The number of the races increased to 7 this year with addition of Spain and Norway as a replacement for Finland.

FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy has already proved that it is the fastest growing motorsport in the world. Martin Anayi – World RX Managing Director for IMG – spoke about various new TV deals for the upcoming World RX season, with a combined household reach to exceed more than 800 million homes worldwide.

“The number of broadcasters taking World RX has grown steadily since IMG took over the rights to the Championship at the end of 2012 and we have commitment from a number of key broadcasters to show extended World RX coverage live in 2015,” he said. “The amount of free-to-air TV broadcast coverage has increased dramatically and we’ll continue to offer live coverage via our website to ensure that fans across the globe can keep up with the race for the World and European RX Championship titles.”
