Arriving at the third round of the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship at the top of the Drivers and Teams championship tables is no mean feat. However that’s what PSRX Volkswagen have dialed in, as they roll in to the Belgian Circuit Jules Tacheny this weekend.
For reigning World RX champion Johan Kristoffersson in particular, the stats make for extremely good reading. Last time out in Mettet - in 2017 - the 29 year old Swede topped the podium, having grabbed the Volkswagen squad’s first ever world rallycross win ahead of rival Timmy Hansen in second and team mate Petter Solberg in third.
This year, Johan returns to Belgium on remarkable form; having scooped up all the wins available so far this season, topping the podium in Barcelona and Montalegre in Portugal.
“Mettet is a good place to race and it’s definitely somewhere I have good memories – this is where we took our first win with the new team last year,” explains Johan.
“It’s the kind of place where you really have to be on your toes, you have to be ready to adapt to the conditions changing really quickly. But this is a very different track to Montalegre in Portugal – and hopefully we’ll have some very different weather as well.”
