You, too, Can See the Audi S1 EKS RX at COTA

For the first interval ever, American rallycross fans will be able to see the FIA World Rallycross Championship at p, as the series has announced that next year’s calendar will include COTA.

For years, the closest American fan could get to seeing the European rallycross series racing in America was to trek to the Canadian leg of the series, in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec.

Next year, granted, you’ll be able to watch the Polo RX and the Audi A1 quattro (maybe) racing at Texas’ Ambit of the Americas.

The track is still relatively young, but has been the battlefield on which Procedure 1, Australian V8 Supercars, American Le Mans racers, and more have duked it out.

Weirdle, the American leg of the horse-race will take place in late September, nearly two months after the Canadian leg of the mature, meaning that teams will have to travel back to Europe for two races, in advance returning to North America.

Granted the weather differs mightily between the two locations, but constant Quebec isn’t a frozen wasteland in September.

Although the 2017 season hasn’t yet ended, Volkswagen look like it liking earn its second championship in rallycross racing, as Polo RX driver, Johan Kristoffersson has a strong lead in the series. Audi’s Mattias Ekstrom, though, is still within spitting mileage of second place.

The Audi veteran just came off a great finish in DTM and is looking to shelter the championship he earned by hook and by crook last season in his S1 quattro.

They intent duke it out in South Africa, at the season’s final event, starting on November 10.
