Timmy Hansen asalta el lideratocon un punto de ventaja

The championship is at the most exciting final in the history of the FIA World Rallycross Championship

Hansen starred in a spectacular comeback after a fateful Saturday in which a debatable action by Robin Larsson condemned him in the initial phase of the qualifiers. “The whole team was disappointed yesterday, but we all joined together and continued to believe that if we made a perfect day today, everything would be possible.” I tried to concentrate on what I had to do and drive my best despite all the circumstances in which I found the situation of the championship, the wet track and finish as low yesterday in the order. This victory today really came from the heart. The whole team loved him and believed we could do it. Sitting here after where I was yesterday feels amazing. “

Bakkerud, who started from pole position, did not have enough pace to match Timmy Hansen in the final after the Swede launched his Team Hansen MJP Peugeot 208 to the head in the first corner. “I tried my best and chased Niclas and Timmy from P3, but when you drive to the limit, as I did, it’s easy to make a mistake,” he said. “Both Timmy, Kevin and I know what is at stake. Now I have the job of chasing and Timmy is the leader, so he will be thinking about me for the next eight weeks. So sleep well!”

The Finn Niclas Gronholm fought for the victory in a final that took place in wet conditions, after a persistent rain during the second day of the event. “The second round was good and I felt I could fight for victory. I began to force a little and made some small mistakes and they will end up weighing in the end,” said GRX pilot Taneco. Gronholm teammate Timur Timerzyanov was fifth in the final just ahead of the RXCartel teammate Liam Doran.

Rokas Baciuska was ready to resume where he left it in the previous round in Loheac, France after finishing again as the best ranked after the first day. However, for the second successive event, the Baciuska Renault Megane got entangled with the Timo Scheider Seat Ibiza of ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport in the semifinal.

Another of the notable novelties of last weekend has been the launch of Projekt-E. The new division of electric Supercars that will enter the championship from next season has left very good feelings after the exhibition laps at the Latvian circuit of Bikernieki. The car of the future has arrived to stay.
