DC: First to Hell! Later to WRX?

Category: News, WRX Posted 12.06.14 11:11 by

Former Formula One driver David Coulthard will be in Hell as a brand ambassador for Cooper Tires, but does not rule out to try his hands on Rallycross in the all-new WorldRX series later.

 

Briton David Coulthard will attend the Norwegian FIA World Rallycross Championship round in Hell near Trondheim as a brand ambassador for Cooper Tires, the series’ control tyre supplier. The former F1 driver, who won a total of 13 GPs and hails from the Scottish village of Twynholm, just down the road from WRX regular Andy Scott’s hometown of Dumfries, is very keen to witness his first Rallycross event.

‘DC’ spoke positively ahead of his visit: “Rallycross is one of motorsport’s hidden jewels that really deserves the additional investment and support it is now getting. It’s a truly spectacular form of the sport and, because of its gladiatorial nature, it’s one of the most entertaining forms of racing there is, so I’m keen to go along and get some proper insight into what it’s all about. I’m not getting behind the wheel on this occasion, but I’m certainly not ruling that out for the future and I’d like to get stuck into the weekend in Norway in some fashion, so we’ll see what happens. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity for me to scout it all out…”
