World rallycross car launch – XITE Racing
XITE Racing will be announcing the launch of our new WRX car for 2018 at the Autosport international show at the NEC Thursday 12AM alongside driverÂ Oliver BennettÂ who is performing in the live arena all weekend in collaboration with Project Cars 2!
What World Rallycross rounds have been chosen?
XITE Racing is looking to tackle initially 8 of the best WRX rounds on the calendar, Spain, UK, France, Norway, Sweden and the USA! Part of the autosport show will be trying to gain the extra sponsorship and partners needed to tackle a full WRX assault in the new developed car by Simpson Motorposrt.
Development of the WRX car!
The car is looking very promising for its initial 2018 campaign. Simpson motorsports engineering backround in circuit racing combined with XITE Racing’s rallycross knowledge have lead to a well developed chassis. Using the latest components should prove it to be a competitive WRX car.
The challenges ahead!
Seat time, and test time! With such a tight build schedule and testing looking to begin in March once the last components arrive it is going to be very tight against time to get everything in place! Oliver Bennett’s short years racing means seat time is minimal, which may prove one hurdle that is difficult to overcome!
