RIGA, LATVIA
11/09/2019

This weekend, for the fourth time, Latvia will host Neste World RX of Latvia – the top level autosports event, a round of FIA World Rallycross Championship. The race is all set with two Latvians – Jānis Baumanis and Reinis Nitišs to fight for the glory and a podium finish on Sunday afternoon. In addition to World RX races European Rallycross Championship for Supercar and Super1600 categories is set to conclude on September 14-15 at CSDD Biķernieki Circuit. One more Latvian, Jānis Veģeris will also debut at international level of competition, competing against fellow Euro RX Supercar drivers.

For the second year running Latvian Television provides Live coverage from all the rounds of the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship. In addition to standard two-hour programming, Riga based event Neste World RX of Latvia will receive special scheduling, including live coverage of all the qualifying races, finals as well as TV Expert Studio.

Latvian Television sports department director Andris Ušackis: “Compared to last year, the rallycross TV live broadcast audience has grown. Around 46 thousand people watch at least part of the broadcast of each event. And this is during a time when, due to the prevalence of internet, the TV ratings have a tendency to decrease. This clearly shows that a good brand has been created. The team representatives and organizers definitely play an important part here. We often receive videos from Reinis Nitišs or Jānis Baumanis, where they openly discuss their successes and failures, even in moments when they would rather remain quiet. This speaks to people, as we can see their true emotions!”

FIA World Rallycross Championship event Neste World RX of Latvia 2019 is possible thanks to the title sponsor Neste, as well as the Latvian Ministry of Science and Education, our partner Road Traffic Safety Directorate (CSDD), and our sponsors Ferratum and Live Riga.
