If you haven’t been keeping tabs on the FIA World Rallycross Championship, then you really should be. After a month’s summer hiatus, we’ve been on the edge of our seats waiting for another helping of dirt-thrashing racing, and thankfully this weekend the series launched back into action.
In trademark style, #WorldRX doesn’t do anything by halves. Marking the opener of the second half of the season, a straight-up 200km/h street-fight awaited in Canada, as the teams touched down at the GP3R Motorsports Festival in Trois Rivieres - around an hour north of Montreal.
As championship leader, and defending Drivers’ titleholder, all eyes were on PSRX Volkswagen’s Johan Kristoffersson to deliver; and the Swedish ace didn’t disappoint. Rocketing to the chequered flag ahead of second and third placed rivals Timmy Hansen and Sebastian Loeb; Kristoffersson now becomes the first ever-repeat winner of the Canadian event, and pulls 55 points further into the lead of the drivers standings.
