World leading artificial grass brand Easigrass is proud to be supporting Team RX Racing in its bid to win the British Rallycross Championship this year. Team RX Racing’s lead driver Ollie O’Donovan, who won the coveted British RX crown in 2007 and came second overall last year season with back-to-back victories in the Team RX Racing Ford Focus Supercar, is on track in his bid to reach the top step of the podium in 2017.
Ollie claimed Ireland’s first ever podium finish at the FIA European Rallycross Championship in the first round of the series in Barcelona in April this year. This followed his impressive third place finish in the opening round at Croft Circuit in March.
“ As a company that doesn’t like to miss out on a huge branding opportunity – as well as being keen followers of rallycross and Team RX Racing – we are so pleased that Ollie has given us this opportunity to engage with our national and international target audience as a result of this amazing sponsorship opportunity,” said Anthony Gallagher, Easigrass Managing Director,” We wish Ollie and all of Team RX Racing the very best for this season.”
Team RX Racing’s race transporter and Ford Focus Supercar featured Easigrass branding at the opening round of the British RX series last month, and will continue to promote the brand through 2017.
“ I’m delighted to have signed Easigrass as a partner to Team RX Racing for the 2017 season,” said Ollie O’Donovan. “We’ve had some very solid results to start the year, and we’re looking forward to more of the same going forward. We’re also excited by some interesting ideas with regards to promoting the Easigrass brand within the rallycross arena.”
Rallycross events take place at circuits throughout the UK and around the world. The short, quick-fire racing is built on a 50-year heritage and is perfect for the modern demographic of on-demand spectating. Headline rallycross supercars are four-wheel drive, with two-litre turbo charged 600 horsepower engines that accelerate from 0-60mph in under two seconds – faster than a Formula One car.
