PR: Hansen Motorsport presents a young and strong driver line up for RallycrossRX 2013.

 

Hansen Motorsport is proud to officially announce its five strong driver line which will contest the FIA European Rallycross Championship in 2013. The team is delighted to take on the challenge of one of the most interesting and growing series in motor sport with a driver line up that  is a blend of youthful energy and experience but all inspired by a similar goal to  be the best. Hansen Motorsport will field no less than three Citroën DS3’s in the SuperCar category, one Citroën C2 in the Super1600 class and one car will contest the JRX Cup competition.

 

  • Timur Timerzyanov (26) from Russia will have a new Citroën DS3 SuperCar to launch his defence of his FIA European Rallycross Champion title.
  • Alexander Hvaal (20), a talented driver from Norway, fresh from his rookie year 2012, will build on that experience this year on his way to the top echelons of the sport.
  • Timmy Hansen (20) from Sweden brings with him a wealth of experience gleaned from single seater racing and adds a new perspective as to how RallycrossRX success can be achieved.
  • Eric Färén (22), also from Sweden in a Citroën C2 Super1600, will be followed with interest as he now has the all the elements as his disposal to show his full potential.
  • Kevin Hansen (14), a Swedish young guy with a winning attitude and the victor of the inaugural JRX Cup in 2012. He might be the youngest driver in the team but he is already skilful and determined enough to take another JRX title.

 

Team manager Kenneth Hansen comments: “I am confident that we have made a great choice of drivers who are individually strong and competitive but who are also great team players and it is that collective effort that will move our whole team forward.”

Hansen Motorsport was delighted to participate in the media and test session in preparation for the 2013 European Rallycross Championship which took place on February 21 and 22  last at Lydden Circuit in England. It included a presentation of the 15 permanent drivers that will contest all nine rounds of the 2013 championship in the SuperCar category. These 15 drivers will be supplemented by, an event specific , combination of wild card celebrity drivers together with nationally important contestants.  Added to this was the exciting news that no less than five of this year’s events will be streamed live on TV by the renowned satellite broadcaster Viasat.

Kenneth Hansen commented: “ Everyone at Hansen Motorsport is delighted to participate at the  launch and test event. We have assembled our most comprehensive and formidable challenge ever in recognition of advent of the most professional promotion our sport has ever enjoyed. We are all committed to making RallycrossRX the most spectacular motor sport genre in the world.”
