- Kevin Hansen wins the FIA World RX de Catalunya ahead of the world champions Timmy Hansen and Johan Kristoffersson.
- The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya grandstands have once again been filled with the public to experience the first round of the 2021 Rallycross World Championship live.
Script twist on the second day of the FIA World RX of Catalunya 2021. The film began on Friday afternoon with a great command of the Swedish driver Johan Kristoffersson after the first two qualifying heats, although he was finally disqualified from Q1 due to problems with the device that transmits the data to the FIA. This Saturday the positions have been exchanged and the victory has been for the little Hansen, Kevin, who has celebrated the first place with great joy along with his brother Timmy, who finished second and finally Kristoffersson has closed the podium.
“I have worked very hard to achieve this victory all winter and I have been waiting for it for a long time. I am very happy,” said Kevin Hansen after celebrating with great energy this first win of the season. His brother Timmy added: “I’m super proud of Kevin, he has done a great job. We had a plan on how to get through the first corners, and we carried it out perfectly.” For his part, the compatriot who debuted his Audi S1, he has not finished as happy as he expected. Kristoffersson has counted “The result is good. We are on the podium and it is more than I expected if you ask me yesterday. Still, I clearly want more. This weekend shows us that anything can happen in Rallycross races.“
