The FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX) consists of 10 races hosted across 3 continents.
It is the premium Rallycross championship in the world and one of only 5 FIA World Championships. Consisting of private teams, World RX has enjoyed a rapid growth under the guidance of global media giant and Championship Promoter WME IMG.

With over 6 years of international Rallycross experience, Marklund brings a comprehensive understanding and competitive edge to GCK and, together with Chicherit, has formed a formidable pairing to compete for the 2019 World Championship title.
