Following his impressive 2013 Super 1600 championship victory, up-and-coming Latvian rallycross star Reinis Nitišs joins Olsbergs MSE in 2014 for his first season of Supercar competition in World RX. The hallmark of Nitišs’ driving style is his ability to find clean, fast lines -- honed in his many years of karting competition.

Nitišs debuted in the Super 1600 category of the European Rallycross Championship in 2012, running a partial, five-event season. He scored his first points with a 12th-place finish in Finland. His first full season in the European Rallycross Championship in 2013 saw him take home six Super 1600 wins in nine starts en route to the title. He also showed promise in the 2013 GRC Lites, racing two strong contests in the United States.

  • In 2009, at the age of 14, he won the Latvian and Baltic States karting championships, and made the move to rallycross the following year --earning the Junior Estonian Rallycross title in his debut season.
  • In 2011, Nitišs scored runner-up results in both the Latvian Autocross and Estonian Rallycross championships
  • During Nitišs’ first full season in the European Rallycross Championship in 2013 he took home six Super 1600 wins in nine starts en route to the title.
