April 14-November 25, 2018 -- The 2018 Rallycross season comprises 12 events, commencing with the World RX of Catalunya from Apr 14-16. The season concludes in South Africa in November.

The FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX) is head-to-head short, sharp racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. High-profile drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than two seconds, faster than an F1 car. World RX debuted in 2014 with a 12-round calendar.

Race meetings are normally run over two days and include four separate qualifying sessions, two knock-out semi-finals and one final.

In the FIA World Rallycross Championship each vehicle must run a lap with a detour once during each single race, called a “Joker lap”. This lap must be at least two seconds slower, therefore the alternative route makes the lap longer.

This season includes a round in the United States for the first time, with the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, scheduled to host the event.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
