World RX Barcelona: the first of the season

2018-04-12 thru 2018-04-15


With the presentation of the teams at Silverstone, the World RX 2018 is already underway. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is ready to welcome new players.

Johan Kristoffersson, last season's champion said: "I assume the role of pilot to beat, but at the same time I have the satisfaction of having fulfilled one of my greatest dreams, to become the Rallycross World Champion". This year he will once again seek this title with the VW Polo GTI RX, one of the most spectacular supercars in the championship. At his side, the double world champion of Rallycross, Petter Solberg, will look for the luck that last year did not have.

The great bet of the season is that of the EKS RX team, led by the Swedish Ekström and that this year will have Norwegian Andreas Bakkerud at his side. Ekström has won the Barcelona event twice, and this season he wants to repeat victory in the first round of the championship on April 15. "I really like the Barcelona circuit, I'm good at it. I hope to repeat victory, "says the champion of RX and DTM. This pair is a great candidate the title by team.
