World RX: Mattias Ekström targets World Rallycross title with EKS Audi

EKS Press Release

You know that I’m a person who doesn’t give up easily. My whole life has been a competition. The beginning of 2015 is no exception. So far the challenge has been to bring it all together for the season. One might believe everything would be easier this time around, compared to last year when we had nothing ready. I thought so too, but with everything we want to develop and improve, it has shown that the challenge is not less than before.

Now we know. Registration for the FIA World Rallycross Championship 2015 is submitted and our aim from the start – it still holds true. We want to win. Both on and off the track. I’ll drive enough races to become world champion in the RX, as a driver and team owner. And I really want it.

Most of you already know that Anton Marklund will drive for EKS in 2015. Anton was a frequent diner guest with us during last season. I don’t know if it was the food or the car that attracted the most? Anyway, Anton has come to know the team during the winter while he has ”dry run” his new car in the garage. I am proud as a peacock that Anton has chosen EKS and I will give him all the prerequisite to overtake me.

Without the support that you give me, EKS would not exist. All of you who believed in me last year have shown the same confidence in me and EKS again. What you do means a great deal for me. You will not be disappointed. The whole team and I will offer you world-class entertainment.
