After fellow countryman Frode Holte announced his participation in the final round of the 2010 RallyCar Rallycross Championship last Saturday, today double FIA European Rallycross Champion Sverre Isachsen (Ford Focus ST) said he will participate in the American event as well.

Isachsen returns to the USA as he was invited earlier this season to take part in ‘X Games 16’ at the LA Colliseum. “The development of Rallycross in the USA is very exciting”, Isachsen said. “And I want to be a part of that development. Therefore I will send both my car and my trailer by boat to New York. From New York it’s just a short drive to the New Jersey Motorsports Park venue.”

On November 6-7 the Norwegian will compete at Millville, NJ against other Europeans like Liam Doran (Citroen C4), the earlier named Frode Holte (Volvo C30) and according to Isachsen also Swede Per Eklund (SAAB 9-3). Besides those Europeans he will receive competition of several others like Americans Tanner Foust (Ford Fiesta Mk7) who won the two previous events, Subaru Rally Team USA drivers Travis Pastrana (Subaru Impreza WRX STI Mk3) and Dave Mirra (Subaru Impreza WRX STI Mk3) and Kiwi Rhys Millen (Hyundai Accent Mk2/LC).
