TitansRX 2020 on hold due to coronavirus

The worldwide pandemic claims its first international rallycross series


TitansRX has announced that its second season has been put on hold indefinitely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The series’ long-awaited trip across the Atlantic to Trois-Rivières in Canada has been postponed until 2021 to allow the series organiser to reschedule the remaining five European events.

Its second season was also due to include visits to Nyirad in Hungary, Montalegre in Portugal, Essay in France, and Estering in Germany as well as the MJP Area in Austria which is owned by series founder and CEO Max Pucher.

For 2020, TitansRX was also set to introduce its ‘Real-E’ concept, which involved the use of environmentally-friendly biofuels and a new tire compound that minimised particle waste.

“Despite a very successful test day for drivers with the updated 2020 Pantera RX6 with the Real-E eco-fuel we are sorry to announce today that due to the coronavirus panic our 2020 calendar will have to be rescheduled,” the series said in a statement.

“We are in talks with the racetracks and wait for a clearer picture about the length of the scare.

“We have agreed with GP3R [Trois-Rivières] in Canada that our first race there will be postponed to 2021 to make room for our rescheduled European races.”

During a successful maiden season, the series attracted star names such as Timmy and Kevin Hansen, Topi Heikkinen, Craig Breen, and Hayden Paddon.

Kevin and Timmy Hansen and Reini Sampl had been testing the series’ updated single-make Pantera RX6 car, complete with the green enhancements, recently in preparation for the season.
