The organizers of the autocross race in Rupa, Croatia, which was scheduled for this weekend, announced that the event was canceled due to insufficient number of registrations. The race would also be considered a newly revived Slovenian national championship in autocross, and the cancellation also calls into question the further implementation of the Slovenian championship this season.
Some time ago we reported that autocross is finally returning to Slovenia. Now we also know the calendar of races that will be considered the Slovenian national championship, but only these will be run on Croatian soil, together with the Croatian championship, as we do not yet have a suitable autocross track. The Slovenian Motorsport Association AŠ2005 warns that calendar additions are still possible, which leaves the door open for Slovenian organizers as well. AŠ2005 collects registrations of associations and drivers until March 5, and despite the published calendar, the autocross season is still not fully guaranteed, because in case there is not enough interest by the application deadline, the championship will not be held (Lack of interest of racers was also the main the reason that the autocross championship has not been held in our country so far).
After three years, the AŠ2005 Motorsport Association has given the green light for the Slovenian National Autocross Championship. At the meeting with the racers and former and future race organizers, the president of the association, Dagmar Šuster, stated that there is a lot of interest in the implementation of the DP in autocross, but unfortunately there are no suitable racetracks on Slovenian soil so the association will try , in Italy, Hungary and Austria, as part of their races. The meeting elected an autocross commission consisting of president Miro Topolinjak from AMD Zvezda, and members Miran Prelog AMD Zvezda, Maks Kosec ŠD Tornado, Stane Grgič AMK Tunjice, Stane Sušnik ASC Mustang Domžale and Jure Hajnihar ŠD Utrip. The Commission will examine the possibilities for roaming in Croatia
