The final round of the 2017 World Rallycross Championship is due to be held in Cape Town, South Africa this weekend. Rallycross is a speed based race on a mixed-surface circuit using modified road cars. SA is prepping for the first world championship motorsport event in sub-Saharan Africa, hosted by Monster Energy on the Killarney race circuit overlooking beautiful scenery of Table Mountain. Killarney race circuit has been the racing ground of many international Formula One racing events since 1960. Such a prestigious event will boost tourism and investment into Cape Town.

This will be a full weekend event starting with practice runs with an open pit to allow spectators to walk through and check it out. The spectators will also be able to mingle with the drivers and the pit crew on Saturday. Sunday begins with warm up and the races are split into short heats, with intervals that will be filled with stunt driving and drifting to entertain the spectators. 

The biggest names in rallycross racing will be gearing up to compete for winning the title this weekend. Sweden’s Johan Kristoffersson has already wrapped up the title but one point separates former champion Petter Solberg from Norway and the 2016 title-holder Matthias Ekstrom, for second place. A brand new and narrow circuit will challenge both of these drivers as they go head to head in the finals. 

It's set to be an exciting event so best you get yourself to Killarney this weekend!
