Cooper Tire Europe is sole tyre supplier and Associate Partner to the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy, underlining our position as a leader in the production and supply of rallycross tyres.

The FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX) will run alongside the FIA European Rallycross Championship, which will continue as a series in its own right, following a hugely successful season in 2014 under series promoter IMG Motorsport.

Cooper has a very long and extremely successful history in the rallycross arena and s the rallycross tyre of choice for competitors across the world, having supplied tyres to European Rallycross Champions for the past two decades. Cooper’s supremacy is thanks to its unique rallycross tyre composition, which offers unrivalled levels of grip and traction on both tarmac and gravel, to provide the best all-round performance.

For competitors to tackle the changing surfaces, from tarmac to gravel, they need a tyre which is capable of handling both rough and smooth surfaces. Meeting this unique challenge is something that Cooper excels at and particularly prides itself on.

In addition to World RX, Avon Tyres is also exclusive tyre supplier to the French Rallycross Championship, an agreement which began in 2013 and is to last a further year.

The 2016 World RX championship will visit 12 venues this season, including the Grand Prix de Trois Rivières in Canada, Latvia, as well as rallycross favourites Lohéac (France) and Lydden Hill (United Kingdom). Of the 12 rounds, five will be European Rallycross Events.
