There is alot and I mean alot of buzz in the press about the upcoming 2014 FIA World Rallycross season. Back in the day this was kind of a big thing, but the glitz and glamour of Formula 1, DTM, touring cars and the WRC really did leave it in behind in the dust. But that was then and this is now and WOW this really is some spectacular series with none of the boring restrictions we see now on WRC and F1 and what’s more it’s attracting some really big names into the seats, like 9 times WRC champion Sebastien Loeb making appearances last year. These 650 bhp monsters can accelerate to 60 in just over 2 seconds with a top speed of 130mph and skip from tarmac to dirt and dust with ease and grace… Now this is racing!

Take note as the big boys are now looking for a piece of the action and this is Ford Racing’s 2014 Rallycross Fiesta ST and it’s pre-season test just outside the artic circle of Sweden. Definitely check out the FIA World Rallycross website below and check out when the circus is in your town as we all need to see more of this!
