Reinis Nitišs



FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy driver Reinis Nitišs, who recently announced a split from the Münnich Motorsport team, today confirmed his participation in the World RX of Barcelona, where he will drive a Ford Fiesta RX Supercar run by the Olsbergs MSE team.

“I am pleased that we could find a fast agreement with Olsbergs MSE – a team and car that I know very well. Of course it will be hard to change the car mid-season, but I will do my best in Spain to reach the highest result possible,” said the young Latvian from Jekabpils, who drove for Olsbergs MSE in both 2014 and 2015, achieving third and seventh place overall in the FIA World Rallycross Drivers’ Championship and scoring his maiden victory in Norway, in 2014.

“I’m glad that Reinis is back with OMSE. We all know his capacity as a driver and we look forward to work closely with Reinis again, together with our young drivers as part of our project of building future stars,” said Olsbergs MSE Team Principal, Andreas Eriksson.
