The RCCAOI 1/8th RallyX Nationals are back to a full race calendar for 2022 . The championship will visit NIMCC in Ballymena for the first time in a few years as well as returning to regular venues BADMCC, Navan and Cork.

The changes that were tested out for last year are being run again;
– Saturday racing is for E-buggy and Nitro Truggy
– Sunday racing is for Nitro Buggy only. 

In addition to this, each venue will offer an open race day for the purposes of practice a couple of weeks before the main event.
