It has been a very intense weekend if we refer to the world of the engine and the riders of the FIA World Rallycross Championship have made the grade. Starting with the Race of Champions, an automobile test held in Saudi Arabia, more specifically at the pharaonic International Stadium of King Fahd. 20 legendary drivers from different motorsport specialties (David Coulthard, Juan Pablo Montoya …) came together in this extravagant event and among them the two PSRX Volkswagen Sweden drivers Petter Solberg and Johan Kristoffersson representing rallycross.
Scottish sprinter David Coulthard beat the rest of the field, with a very successful second place for Petter Solberg and a great performance by Johan Kristoffersson who managed to reach the semifinals and leave the rallycross with the bar high.
On the other hand, the action and the roar of the engines were also present on the snowy Swedish circuit Östersunds Motorstation for the first test of the RallyX on Ice in 2018, in which many of the WorldRX riders participated (Robin Larsson, Kevin Eriksson, Cyril Raymond, Timmy Hansen …) and where Oliver Eriksson was the fastest and took first place in the race. Another of our riders who also took the podium in this test was the little one of the Hansen brothers, who with a great driving got a great second position in the Speedcar Xtreme modality.
The next stop of this championship will take place in the mecca of rallycross, the Swedish circuit of Holjes next February 10 ..
