WHAT THE HELL IS RX?

RX is head to head, short sharp racing around mixed surface tracks (dirt and tarmac) bringing together the best elements from circuit racing and rallying. It’s the fastest growing motorsport in the world with a unique idea: The Joker is a slower, alternative section of the track that must be taken once in each race.
