Neste World RX of Latvia, the Latvian round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy, has received the Latvian Annual Sports Award 2018 as the Latvian Sport Event of the Year. This award, established in 2005, is the highest honour in the Latvian sports community, and was presented in 17 categories this year.

“In 2016 and 2017, the FIA deemed our event to be the best in the calendar, but this award gives a special and unique emotions – this shows that our event is appreciated here in Latvia and that you all enjoy it. In the name of the whole Latvian motorsports’ community, I would like to thank you all for this award – it really means a lot.

Using this moment, I would also like to thank the Latvian Ministry of Science and Education, CSDD, Neste, and Live Riga for giving us an opportunity to do this job. A job that showcases Latvia to the whole world and that we will, hopefully, keep doing for a long time.

I also want to thank all the people who work in this event, and there are lots of you, my RA Events team and anyone who has been a part of it – this award is for you!” says RA Events and Neste World RX of Latvia director Raimonds Strokšs.

“Thank you for the appreciation! Nothing can serve as a better acknowledgement of the great work done by the Biķernieki complex sports base, proving that it truly is a national sports base that honours and represents our country! I wold also like to thank Raimonds Strokšs and his team for the superb collaboration, as well as extend gratitude to all CSDD and Biķernieki track employees for creating a circuit for such a world-class event. Thank you!” concludes CSDD Member of the Board Aivars Aksenoks.
