After the closest title fight in the series' history (swinging the way of Sweden's Timmy Hansen in the Final of the closing round), the FIA World Rallycross Championship heads into 2020 with a new circuit at Nürburgring, Germany. Alongside this fresh venue are return visits to Portugal's Montalegre, a stalwart of past seasons, alongside the young but already fan-favourite circuit at Spa. All drivers and teams will be keen to show their winning potential that was displayed in an unpredictable 2019.

World RX also launches Projekt E, the first championship for electric rallycross cars, which will accompany World RX for five rounds. Entries from Norway's Holten Motorsport and Poland's Rallytechnology have been announced. The electric drivetrains, produced by Team STARD, are designed with retrofitting in mind and are compatible with existing ICE rallycross supercars/R5 rally cars. The electric cars offer comparable speed to traditional supercars, with reduced operating costs.

TitansRX expands from its promising debut season with an overseas round at GP3R in Canada; the 2020 campaign also incorporates two regional inter-season "Cups" which will qualify drivers for the championship's Grand Finale in October.

Following the demise of the short-lived Americas Rallycross in 2019, the sport in the USA is survived by Nitro Rallycross, a fixture of the annual Nitro World Games. Successful meetings in 2018 and 2019 have attracted international competitors, with its outlandish track design promoting unique and varied racing. With rumours of multiple rounds this season, and jilted teams pushing for somewhere to race, this should be one to watch.

British Rallycross is now managed by Lydden Hill, promising fresh Supercar entries and introducing a spec truck class for a 700hp DAF tractor unit. Excellent

Curious to see how RX survives stateside considering the rug has been consistently pulled out of it since 2016

...and Euro champ Larsson steps up for the full 2020 WRX season in one of those 2018 Audis.

GCK returns with Chicerit and Baciuska in Clios alongside Marklund in the Megane.

Muennich Motorsport back to a two-car World RX outfit with Scheider and Muennich.

That's too bad about RX Cartel. They were my favorite team last year.

eh why not, 2022 is going to be a big year in the sport. Electrification bought World RX back from the dead and Nitro is going international. Things looking up for once
