If I was in Belgium two weeks ago, I would definitely go to the World Championships in Mettet. Many PK team members were there by the way. Rallycross is a fantastic discipline in which spectacle is guaranteed. As spectator you can almost see the whole circuit, the cars have a lot of horsepower, the races are short and a bit of contact is allowed, a bit like Nascar. The WC rallycross is on a serious advance and we can be really happy that it has a stop in Belgium. "
"I started karting when I was six. My first race was in Hasselt, at the TT district. My father did indeed rallycross at that time, with some Porsches but also with a MG Metro. As a child, I visited rallycross circuits more often than circuit Zolder. That was a very nice time. The man I looked up most at that time was Matti Alamaki. He became European champion five times and later he came to ride the 24 Hours of Zolder with Pertti Kuismanen. I was significantly faster on the track, but maybe not in rallycross. "
"Rallycross is a bit between circuit racing and rally: they ride on a circuit, but the driving technique is more like rally. I never tried it myself. I would like to try it, but it would not be easy. I'm not used to do the pure row lines. You have to throw with the car and I never learned that. It is no coincidence that many top rallycross riders have been trained in the rally: Solberg, Loeb, Duval, ... with Mattias Ekstrom and Scott Speed as exceptions. "
Ask your question to Anthony Kumpen yourself at 'Het Belang van Limburg' and maybe your theme will be discussed. Rudi Jacquemin, the questioner of today, wins a duo-ticket for the 24 Hours of Zolder (11-12 May). Out of all the week winners, one lucky draw will be awarded at the end of the season, who will receive a codriving with Anthony Kumpen at Circuit Zolder.
