Blog: The new PSRX look

Category: News, Petter's Blog Posted 18.04.14 10:10 by

ERC24 has exclusively been chosen by the Petter Solberg Rallycross (PSRX) Team as the only website dedicated to Rallycross to present ‘Petter’s Blog’ in 2014. Find part #4 of April 18 here.

 

Here’s the brand new 2014 PSRX look! The first ever FIA World Rallycross Championship will be nothing but a treat! My new design of the PSRX cars and team is a tribute to my loyal sponsors and to the amazing accomplishment by IMG of turning this sport into a World event in record time.

Only 17 days remain until the first ever World RX blasts off in Portugal. It’s my pleasure to reveal for you how the 2014 PSRX Team will appear in the World RX debut year. This is the first ever picture of my new car. We will show off the car for the first time at the World RX Launch in Italy next week! I’ve always been a fan of bright colours and clear lines. I made this design for both my team and our sponsors to be seen and easily recognized. Just scout for my ‘11’ arrow around the track and on LIVE TV at all 12 rounds of the World RX series this year!

The PSRX Team has been through a very tough and hard working period. At most we went Flat Out for more than 40 hours straight – with minimal rest both before and after. I am forever thankful to my crew for their accomplishments! I believe that we are well prepared at this time. We still have some crucial testing of both Alex Hvaal’s car (PSE01 2013) and my car (PSE02 2014) left. So far, we are very confident that we are on the right track. I have some big expectations both for my team mate Alex and myself this season.

In front of us lies 12 tough World RX rounds, where we will be in competition with some of the worlds best drivers. It’s going to be tighter, tougher and more difficult than ever to reach the top of the podium. The big question is who will be the first World RX Champion in November. The only thing I’m sure about is that several extremely talented and experienced drivers will try to grab the opportunity. Both Alex and I are amongst them! For each day that goes by I’m getting more excited to get to the start. I’ll be a very happy and excited man when we turn up to the blistering start in Portugal! Highlights are lined up towards the summer. The one I am looking forward to the most is my home event (both World RX and Euro RX) in Hell, Norway 14-15 June.
