Chapman Freeborn Airchartering, along with logistics partner GAC, have successfully transported 19 Rallycross cars to Trondheim Airport, Norway on board a chartered Kalitta Air B747-200F.

The operation, which supports the FIA World Rallycross Championship, departed from Montréal–Mirabel Airport in Canada, marking the first time supercars competing in the competition have been transported by air.

The supercars, each capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, will compete in a race in Hell, Norway, as part of the ongoing global competition, which puts drivers from around the world head to head as they compete for the coveted world championship title.

“We are delighted to have coordinated this operation along with GAC for the World Rallycross Championship,” said Sam Macadam, Cargo Charter Broker at Chapman Freeborn Airchartering. “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.”

Chapman Freeborn, founded in the UK in 1973, specializes in the charter and lease of aircraft for clients such as freight forwarders, multinational corporations, governments, and humanitarian agencies. GAC is a global provider of integrated shipping, logistics and marine services.

“With meticulous planning, we were able to smoothly deliver the first ever World Rallycross charter,” Macadam added, “securing air charter a place as a viable transport option for the championships in the future.”

The landmark occasion was attended by Norwegian rally drivers Petter Solberg and Andreas Bakkerud, currently first and second in the championship’s overall table, along with the mayor of Stjørdal.
