RX Italia enters second round

May 31, 2019

The second round of the Italian Rallycross Championships take place in Maggiora on the first and second of June.

Howling engines, screeching tires, the smell of petrol in the air: the participants and spectators can look forward to an exciting weekend at RX Italia in Maggiora. Main partner, tire manufacturer Toyo Tires, looks forward to the second round which is run in the opposite direction to round one to provide greater challenge for the  competitors.

In the second round, there will be exciting developments: For the first time, SXS (side-by-side vehicles) – small 4x4 off-road vehicles – will take part in the race. Fabio Merli, Mangaging Director of Toyo Tire Italia, is delighted with the success of the RX Italia: "With our huge UHP and off-road range, Toyo Tires are a perfect match for RX Italia. As our spirit is to challenge ourselves every day to develop the best tires and customer service we can, we are a perfect match with the goals of the organisers and participants of Rallycross, who give their best at every race.”

The Rallycross Italy consists of six rounds which kicked off on 21 April at the Maggiora Offroad Arena. One of the rounds is shared with the Austrian Rallycross championship at the Wachauring in Austria. Toyo Tires is an integral part of Rallycross Italy – as a partner, an exhibitor at the races and in the public relations of Rallycross Italy.

Senior European Marketing Manager Mike Rignall also commends the partnership: "With this sponsoring we increase to five the number of rallycross partnerships we have in Europe. We are working closely with the championship participants to develop even better tires on- and offroad ". The partnership with Rallycross Italy is the latest sponsorship of rallycross championships in Europe. Toyo Tires already supports the British Rallycross Championship, the British Clubman's Rallycross Championship, the German Rallycross Meristerschaften, as well as the Portuguese Rallycross Championships.
