Today Nitro Rallycross announced on sale details for the first stop of its inaugural global series, Nitro RX United Kingdom. The disruptive new force in motorsports is coming to legendary Lydden Hill Race Circuit for an action-packed weekend of racing 18-19 June.

Motorsport icon Travis Pastrana will aim to take the checkered flag in Group E, Nitro RX’s new top class, featuring the most powerful vehicle in rallycross: the electrifying FC1-X. To top the podium, Pastrana will have to face off against a stacked lineup of elite drivers, including Bristol, England’s Oli Bennett, on Nitro RX’s tough tracks, which push competitors’ limits with huge jumps, banked turns and steep berms.

Pastrana said, “We are so excited to kick off Nitro Rallycross’ next chapter at historic Lydden Hill. This iconic track is the birthplace of rallycross and home to some of its biggest moments. Now we look forward to going back to where it all began but adding some Nitro Circus flair. We can’t wait for fans to be a part of the action.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow – Wednesday 4, May – at 8:00 AM and will be available at Ticketmaster.co.uk. (https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/nitro-rallycross-england-canterbury-17-06-2022/event/1F005C9A9DA42585) General admission weekend tickets are £35 each with premium VIP access through Club Nitro RX passes available for £200 each (plus additional taxes and fees). More information on Club Nitro RX’s premium amenities is detailed below. Please note that children under 13-years of age are free but must have a ticket for entry.

Nitro RX United Kingdom will be the first of ten rounds staged in six countries, including the United States, Sweden, Finland, Canada and Saudi Arabia, all building to the first global Nitro RX series championship.

UK fans will see the competition debut of the FC1-X. This revolutionary vehicle delivers the electric equivalent of 1,070 peak horsepower (800 kW) and accelerates from 0-60 in just 1.4 seconds, launching faster off the line than an F1 car. Nitro RX competitors like Bennett got their first taste of the FC1-X’s game-changing capabilities during pre-season testing last week and came away impressed. This summer, with series points and championship standings on the line, look for drivers to take the gloves off.

The FC1-X will flex its muscles in Nitro RX’s new top Group E division. Just as the legendary Group B

cars set the motorsport world ablaze in the 1980s, Nitro RX’s new Group E class is set to make another quantum leap. That inspiration, supercharged by Nitro Circus’ limit-pushing DNA, will show the massive performance potential of electric vehicles unleashed by the fastest rallycross cars ever seen.

In addition to the competition debuts of the FC1-X and Group E, Nitro RX 2022-23 will feature an expanded offering of high-impact racing. The iconic Supercar class will return, giving fans a double dose of elite rallycross competition while the developmental NRX Next division is back as well, providing a pathway for the next generation of drivers. Nitro RX UK will also include a special CrossCar competition, offering fans even more wide-open action

This season, fans can enjoy enhanced experiential elements at each Nitro RX stop, including the opportunity to get fully immersed in the event with the all-new Club Nitro RX. Highlighted by a private trackside viewing location and a brand-new Club Nitro RX area, passholders will enjoy all-inclusive food and beverage, a private lounge, on-site entertainment and a chance to meet Nitro RX drivers. This new premium experience puts fans in the center of the action all weekend long.
