RallyX on Ice to be streamed live on Motorsport

 
RallyX on Ice to be streamed live on Motorsport.com
  • Races to be shown live on world's biggest digital motosport platform
  • Expert duo Toby Moody and Anders Krohn join forces in commentary box
  • ‘Incredible spectacle’ predicted, with first round just around the corner

The rapidly approaching 2018 RallyX on Ice campaign will be streamed live around the world on leading specialist website Motorsport.com, bringing the action-packed winter spectacle to more people than ever before.
 
Excitement is at fever pitch as the opening round of RallyX on Ice speeds into view at Östersund in Sweden this coming Saturday (3 February), with almost 50 entries across the three classes – Supercar Lites, RX Academy on Ice and Speedcar Xtreme.
 
Rallycross is motorsport’s fastest-growing discipline, with drivers from all areas of the sport electing to try their hand at it – as evidenced by the high-profile presence of reigning Verizon IndyCar Series Champion Josef Newgarden and three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Hélio Castroneves on the RallyX on Ice entry list. Little wonder Motorsport.com was keen to grab a slice of the high-octane action for its hugely popular Motorsport.TV channel.
 
“We’re big fans of rallycross at Motorsport.com, and the RallyX on Ice series sounds like a blast,” remarked Charles Bradley, Global Editor in Chief of the world's biggest digital motorsport platform. “I look forward to watching the broadcasts of these exciting events.”
 
The races will be brought to life by expert commentating duo Toby Moody and Anders Krohn. The former has previous experience of talking about ultra-powerful rallycross cars slipping and sliding through the snow – and the Briton admits he is champing at the bit for the season to get started.
 
“To take what is already a hugely exciting sport to some of the most picturesque ‘winter wonderland’ venues you could possibly imagine really is something else and will make for fabulous TV,” enthused Moody, whose CV includes presenting roles for Eurosport, ITV4, ESPN and Sky Sports amongst others. “I remember being extremely impressed by the circuits and the racing last year, and I can’t wait to get back out there again.
 
“Attracting the likes of Josef Newgarden, Hélio Castroneves and Timmy Hansen to compete is a major coup. These drivers are international motorsport heroes, and the fact that they actively wanted to come along and participate speaks volumes for the calibre and appeal of RallyX on Ice – and the organisers should be applauded for that. It’s going to be an incredible spectacle.”
 
“We’re delighted to be able to confirm our livestream partnership with Motorsport.com and Motorsport.TV,” added Olsbergs MSE CEO Andreas Eriksson, the man behind the RallyX on Ice concept. “There is no bigger platform globally for fans of the sport to get their fix, and I have no doubt that they will enjoy the show.
 
“Toby brings authority and experience to the commentary booth, while Anders can relate closely to what the drivers are feeling and saying from his own racing career. Together, they form the perfect duo – and I’m looking forward to hearing them in action.”
 
Tickets for the curtain-raiser at Östersunds Motorstadion this Saturday (3 February) can be purchased on-site for SEK 100 (cash only), with gates opening at 08h30 and the racing getting underway at 09h00.
