A day late but absolutely not a dollar short. While Johan Kristoffersson’s title winning Volkswagen Polo R Supercar missed Friday scrutineering because of a hold-up during shipping, when the Swede eventually did get behind the wheel he crushed the competition in true record breaking style.
Continuing the form that has seen the 29 year old ace take two consecutive World RX Drivers’ Championship titles, and win every race this year except for one (round three in Belgium); Kristoffersson romped to victory at ever wheel turn at the 2018 World RX of South Africa. In all, Johan was one win short of a perfect score weekend - netting three qualifying race victories - ranking him as top qualifier overall - followed by a semi final and final victory at the Killarney Raceway in Cape Town.
“What can I say? Winning is what we are here for,” Johan told us. “This win really means a lot – and I know I said that every time I won a race, but it’s really true! When you come to the last race of the season, it’s really important to go to the winter with a win. We all know you’re only as good as your last result, so to start round one in 2019 off the back of this is nice.
