Cooper Tire Europe has agreed to remain as presenting sponsor to the RX2 International Series for the second year running.
“We are the sole tire supplier to both categories, providing rallycross tires which offer unrivalled levels of grip and traction on the challenging mix of tarmac and gravel surfaces,” said Sarah McRoberts, marketing communications manager at Cooper Tire Europe. “It’s exciting for us to be contributing to all the thrilling RX2 on-track action this season.”
The RX2 2018 calendar consists of seven rounds, the competitive category serving as a support class and the main feeder series to the FIA World Rallycross Championship at five European events, and also traveling with World RX to Canada and South Africa.
McRoberts added, “As presenting sponsor to the RX2 International Series for a second consecutive year, the Cooper Tires brand continues to show its commitment to the World Rallycross Championship’s feeder series, and its upcoming drivers.
Belgium will host the RX2 season opener, on May 12-13, at Circuit Jules Tacheny.
