The new GRC Europe series has been unveiled in Austria today ahead of the series maiden year in 2019
Three-time Austrian Rallycross champion and team owner Max J Pucher is behind the new series that will see MJP Promotions run and promote the series billed as ‘an all-European Rallycross Championship with lots of action, high calibre competition, but at affordable costs for teams and drivers’.
“It is a very exciting moment for me and my team. Standing here with the series set up and the new car in front of us, is as breathtaking as standing on the grid, when the lights go green”, said Pucher at the official Kick Off in Austria’s capital Vienna.
For the debut season the series will run a brand-new rallycross car, the Pantera RX6 which has been developed by Pucher’s team. 15 cars have been slated to start the series which will be billed as GRC Europe’s GRC Titan championship category.
In addition to the Titan class, FIA homologated Supercar class cars will also be eligible to the second GRC Supercars class.
The series is expected to run on traditional rallycross circuits in England, Italy, Hungary, France, Germany, Austria and Slovakia, running from May to October 2019.
All events will be televised live on Eurosport and streamed live on Eurosport Player.
