Now we’re getting rally cross

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and logistics partner GAC transported 19 Rallycross cars from Canada to Norway on a chartered Kalitta Air B747-200F for the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
It is the first time cars for the competition have been transported by air.
The occasion was attended by Norwegian rally drivers Petter Solberg and Andreas Bakkerud, currently first and second in the championships overall table, along with the mayor of Stjørdal.
Not only do the supercars, capable of 0-60mph in 1.9 seconds, go like a bat out of hell, but they will going into Hell, Norway, for part of the competition.
Cargo charter broker, Sam Macadam, said: “Transporting 19 supercars along with over 30 tons of loose spares and support equipment did not come without its complications, but our experience transporting unique and outsize cargo allowed us to take a thorough approach to this operation.
"With meticulous planning, we were able to smoothly deliver the first ever World Rallycross charter, securing air charter a place as a viable transport option for the Championships in the future.”
