Reinis Nitišs



Early this year Reinis Nitiss announced plans for the year that included switching his main focus to rallying. Though, soon after that the Covid-19 pandemic took over and halted every motorsport activity. Fortunately, the situation has become more stable, racing has resumed, and this weekend Reinis Nitišs will take part in two competitions – on Saturday at Viru Ralli in Estonia, and on Sunday, in a buggy, at Baltic Rallycross Championship round at Bikernieki race track in Riga.

“This was difficult time for all of us – organizers were forced to postpone or cancel their events that forced me to pause my activities, leaving our plans of the year uncertain. At the moment we have to adapt to the situation and evaluate which competitions we can take part in,” says Reinis Nitišs. “We have not been sitting still all this time. As soon as it was possible, we did a couple rally practice sessions, but it cannot be compared with real competition experience, so I am glad that we can get back to rallying and continue our work.”

Viru Ralli will take place on 4th of July at the Northern Estonia near Rakvere city. Rally will consist of 7 gravel stages with an 88,4 km racing distance. The first special stage is set to start at 10.38, while the final one will begin at 19.00.

“This will be a very intense weekend, because we will do a rally on Saturday, but already on Sunday I have to be on the start line of Baltic Rallycross Championship round at Bikernieki. Driving a buggy gives a precise and consistent driving training. And for sure the racing adrenaline and fight for the top position is still there,” comments Reinis Nitišs.
