Rallycross could be bigger than V8 Supercars, says Dowel

There’s still a chance that rallycross could be the next ‘big thing’ in Australian motorsport, after a successful event in Queensland on August 6.
After a couple of failed attempts to get rallycross up and running last year, an event was held at the Lakeside Motorsport Complex, north of Brisbane.
Competitors included 2011 Australian Rally Champion, Justin Dowel, and former Australian junior champion, Will Orders, who both came away from the event brimming with enthusiasm.
“It was an incredible experience,” Dowel said.
“I have no doubts that it has the potential to be bigger than V8 Supercars, and Will (Orders) and I have already started putting together plans to run a two-car team in the series.”
