Riga was again recognised as the best organised event during the 2017 World Rallycross Championship – and for good reason: Drivers and fans alike are looking forward to the event on 15 and 16 September.
No matter!

In the previous two years, the heavens opened their floodgates during the race weekends. Despite some torrential rain, the enthusiastic motorsport fans remained at the track and were treated to spectacular racing at one of the best circuits on the world championship calendar.


Race facts

The Riga track is part of the Biķernieki Sports Complex and was built completely new in 2016. The ground of the gravel sections is of a similar hardness as found in Lohéac, and the two jumps are neatly incorporated into the layout.

This results in a mixture of fast asphalt passages and treacherous turns on both surfaces. The parallel running of the normal and joker tracks is unique, which run completely side-by-side and both have a jump.

The circuit in Riga is 1.295 kilometres long and is 60 percent asphalt and 40 percent gravel.
