The Jules Tacheny circuit in Mettet is known for its demanding and twisty layout, providing an exceptional experience for both drivers and audience.

The Mettet circuit has played a key role in the development of the sport, with its combination of dirt and asphalt providing ideal conditions for high-speed racing with plenty of contact and drifting. The most prestigious actors of the RX top category such as Sebastien Loeb, Petter Solberg or even the late Ken Block, have raced on this track in the past.

FIA World Rallycross Championship represents the pinnacle of the dual-surface discipline – originally created back in 1967 – and in 2022, the series embarked upon a new electric era in which all entrants compete with identical powertrains, supplied by Austrian manufacturer Kreisel.

With 500kW delivered to the twin motors – equivalent to 680bhp – and 880Nm of instant torque at the touch of a pedal, these are the most powerful World Rallycross cars ever produced, boasting eye-watering acceleration faster even than Formula 1 while retaining the easily recognisable production car bodyshells synonymous with the sport.

The World Championship is supported at selected events by the FIA RX2e Championship and FIA European Rallycross Championship for RX1 and RX3 cars.
