The 2018 season of the FIA WorldRX Championship came to an end on Sunday. The results of the race showed once again what we have been seeing all season. Johan Kristoffersson is the fastest on the grid and his VW Polo GTiRX is the perfect car.
“I have to say that today is quite emotional. This season is coming to an end and it has been a fantastic year for me. I really have to thank this great team, they have done everything for me, “said Kristoffersson. Without them, it would not be possible. I’ve said it many times since my first win in Belgium 2017, but it meant a lot to me”.
The Swedish driver signed his 11th victory of the 12 races of the season, an outstanding one without a doubt. The second place of the season has finally fallen to the Swedish also Mattias Ekström, a pilot who has announced his final as a permanent driver of the grid for next season.
“In the end things finally fit. The second is a fantastic result and a good ending to a long season, in which Johan always had a small step forward. Even so, I am extremely proud of the entire team: we extracted the maximum of our resources. It was also a fabulous year with Andreas. We had a lot of fun together and we have something to celebrate tonight. ”
Andreas Bakkerud closed the podium of the season with a minimum margin on the French legend Sebastien Loeb and the Norwegian Petter Solberg, who finished the season in a creditable 5th place. The action was hectic throughout the weekend at the Killarney International Raceway, very fought races in which every meter was sold very expensive.
We put an end to a season that opened in our circuit last April. A season that has had its own name, the Swedish Johan Kristoffersson.
