World Rally Cross (RallyX) is coming to Cape Town - marking the first time this racing series has visited the African continent.
This modern form of the motorsport has exploded in recent years. The tracks are designed with the audience in mind, virtually every spectator can view the entire track from where ever they are sitting. Races are held in 12 countries and for the next 5 years, the championship will wrap up in Cape Town.
Each event takes place over an entire weekend with over 50 races jampacked into two days. 10 drivers from 4 teams including Ford, Audi, Volkswagen and Peugeot take part and the sport has drawn in some absolute legends, including the most successful driver in world rally history: Sebastien Loeb.
Cape Town’s Killarney Raceway has been specially modified to host the event. We sent our own race ace, Ashley Oldfield, to meet Ashley Haigh-Smith at the track. This is an exclusive look at the Cape Town World Rally Cross race circuit before the event on the 11th and 12th of November.
Tickets are still available at ticketpros.co.za
A huge thank you to Ashley Haigh-Smith, one of only two South African drivers taking part in the race, for his time and energy.
