There are countless disciplines of motorsport out there, and for the most part, they’re all incredibly entertaining. Most of which are far better to watch in person than they are on TV. But one that seems to leave you on the edge of your seat no matter which way you take it in is FIA World Rallycross.

Rallycross consists of both on-road and off-road racing that includes jumps and sideways flying action. It’s fast and aggressive with plenty of friendly “nudges” taking place when multiple cars all battle for the same racing line. Speaking of the cars, they are some serious machines. For example, thanks to tiny little four-cylinder engines that are force fed with a whole lot of turbocharging, they become 600hp monsters that can blast off 0-60 times in as little as 1.9 seconds. That is fast enough to blow the doors off some of the most powerful hypercars on the market such as the Bugatti Chiron.

Motorsport icons like Ken Block, who’s responsible for all the Gymkhana videos, and Sebastian Loeb both compete in the FIA World Rallycross. This Intercontinental competition brings the best drivers and machines together to determine who really is the best in the world. Just watch the final race of the event recently held in Norway, and prepare to become a fan if you aren’t already.
