“In business, just like in sports, you need to have a long-term plan and the right team to reach the best results – they will give you energy to fulfil your goals and provide advice to do so effectively! Thank you to Neste, who have trusted us since 2011 and have helped us reach higher and higher goals – all the way up to a World Championship event!
World Rallycross Championship is the fastest growing World Championship, with two Latvian drivers – Reinis Nitišs and Jānis Baumanis – competing against the planet’s best drivers like Peter Solberg, Sebastien Loeb, and Ken Block! I would like to encourage other companies to evaluate the possibility of becoming a part of a World Rallycross Championship event, thereby valuing the importance of such an event and its benefits to not only Latvia, but the worldwide!” RA EVENTS director Raimonds Strokšs.
“Neste has always been characterized by innovation and a drive to be the best. On our way to a better future with cleaner traffic, sustainable resource use and improved life quality, we are setting ambitious goals and going in directions that others have shied away from. One of these ambitious goals was to bring the World Rallycross Championship to Latvia. We have now fulfilled it, with Latvia hosting one of the RX rounds, joining a list of large European, North American and African countries, and proving that no goal is too ambitious. We will proudly be the title sponsor of Latvian World RX round for the next two years!” says Neste Latvija chairman of the Board Artu Airiainen.
FIA World Rallycross Championship event Neste World RX of Latvia, taking place on September 16-17 of 2017, is possible thanks to the support by Neste, as well as the Latvian Ministry of Science and Education, and our partner Road Traffic Safety Directorate (CSDD).
