 “It’s fantastic to be able to confirm another global music icon for the inaugural World RX of USA later this month,” said World RX Managing Director for IMG Paul Bellamy. “DJ Jazzy Jeff’s famously spectacular and crowd-pleasing live performances need no introduction, and his addition to what is already a superb bill of on and off-track entertainment is a further endorsement of the anticipation surrounding this eagerly-awaited festival of motorsport.”
