Petter Solberg, looking for a new victory

Petter Solberg is the current leader of the FIA World Rallycross Championship standings with 29 points lead over Swede Johan Kristoffersson. The Norwegian driver has already accumulated two wins in four rounds and after the break of these weeks, he just has in mind to go for third win in Germany.

But it will not be easy because 17 more pilots will be looking for victory. On this occasion, Renne Munnich will have the support of their fans and he wants to offer his best potential to the Germans. ““I’m looking forward to racing at our home event. The Estering should be a track that suits our cars well and I like it very much“If the weather stays dry for the weekend and we can perform without any huge problems, I think we should be able to qualify both cars for the semi-finals. For that to happen it’s important to have four consistent heats, without any issues.”
