FULL HOUSE FINALS AT WORLD RX GERMANY

May 082016

Two days, four qualifying races, and a Monster full house in the semi finals. That is the headlining news after the second day of racing at round two of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Hockenheim in Germany.As part of the ultimate circuit vs rally double-header, the World RX series touches down in support of the German Touring Car Championship – the DTM – and the action both on- and off-track has been epic so far. All four M-Claw backed drivers; namely Petter Solberg, Liam Doran, Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud have qualified through to the third and final day of racing, by making the top-12 cut of drivers for the semi finals. Reigning champion Petter Solberg gritted through a difficult opening day to finish Q1 and Q2 in an uncharacteristic seventh, having been plagued by mechanical issues. The Norwegian racer put in a scorching performance in Q3 to score maximum 50 points and top the timesheets. He was then forced out of Q4 after an impact with a rival on track broke his car’s suspension, and also left him with engine problems. He will start on the second row of semi-final two.
