World RX: Our season ends in style - EKSRX

EKSRX Press Release

With Edward Sandström entering his first ever semi final in FIA World Rallycross Championship our premiere season in World RX came to a satisfying end. Of course Edward hoped for more in Istanbul, but a broken rear suspension in his semi ruled him out of the close battle for a spot in the last race on the brand new track and he ended up fourth. “First of all I’m happy that I made it to the semis for the first time. That’s where I want to be and where I always should be. Also I’m a bit frustrated, because we could have achieved much more here”, said Edward.

P-G Andersson’s debut for EKS was a very good one, if we could eliminate heat 1. Because of an engine change after the Free Practice P-G missed the first race and had big pressure to go for maximum points in the next three runs. With fresh power he did an impressive job and gave proof of his pace with P2 in the second and P4 in the third heat. The gap for the Top 12 spots shrunk, but at the end he missed the party by just five points. “We had the speed for a top spot. The car is absolutely great, easy to drive, the perfect package”, said P-G.

The on-track season for EKS is over now. Have we reached all our targets? Yes, we think so! Istanbul was our seventh appearance in a semi final during this season. At four out of eight events we advanced to the final and in Germany even both Audi S1 EKS RX were in the battle for the podium. Last but not least we celebrated the memorable “Magic Weekend” with an amazing victory in Höljes. Without racing action there are still plenty of more things to do during the rest of the year. Curious about what we will do? Stay tuned! We will keep you updated on our social media.
