    Rallycross talents Baumanis and Nitišs to show off supercars on Talsi streets

    Rally Talsi route will lead through the narrow streets of Talsi this year, with day one of the fiftieth anniversary of the event containing a special present from the two Latvian FIA World Rallycross Championship drivers – Jānis Baumanis and Reinis Nitišs. The young rallycross stars will take part in a Neste World RX of Latvia demonstration showcase, going through the city special stage twice and showing the technical capabilities of all-wheel drive Supercar class vehicles to the local fans.

Jānis Baumanis will tackle the Rally Talsi city stage in a Reinsalu Sport prepared Ford Fiesta Supercar – the same car he used to win the 2015 Estonian Rallycross Championship. Meanwhile, Reinis Nitišs will be driving a Citroën C4 Supercar prepared by brothers Ivo and Uģis Traubergs and their team TT Motorsport. The talented rallycross drivers will enter SS5/6 Talsi City Special before the Rally Talsi crews, who are scheduled to do that on Saturday, May 21, starting from 19:34.

“It is hard to believe, but I have not driven a true race car in Latvia for four years, so my participation in this showcase will be an emotional moment. I am ready to drive a Supercar class car whenever possible, be it day, night, a race or a show! Spectators at the stage can be sure that they will see how powerful these cars really are, and some tire marks will definitely be left on the pavement during our runs!” World RX Team Austria driver Jānis Baumanis.

“I do not get a chance to race in Latvia very often, so I truly enjoy every second of it, gathering the necessary emotional charge for the season! It is great that we can give Rally Talsi spectators the opportunity to see the potential of Supercar class cars first hand. In addition to that, the demonstration will take place on Talsi city streets, a unique feat even on international scale! See you in Talsi in May, and then in Biķernieki in October, where 50 Supercar class cars will compete in the Latvian round of the World Rallycross Championship!” Münnich Motorsport driver Reinis Nitišs.
