WRX/ERX: JK & KH ahead

Category: ERX, News, WRX Posted 03.07.16 14:01 by

The two young Swedish drivers continue to lead in Höljes, holding on to their TQ classifictions despite challenges from their WRX and ERX counterparts.

VW Sweden’s Johan Kristoffersson is top qualifier for the WRX in Höljes. Having led overnight, Kristofersson continued to impress despite changing weather conditions.

Norway’s Andreas Bakkerud currently lies in second, continuing to perform following his stunning victory in Norway. But perhaps the most impress rise this weekend came from another Norwegian. Reigning champion Petter Solberg lay in 14th position yesterday following a torrid day in the Varmland. A win in Q3 and third in Q4 sealed his position in the semi-finals. Sebastien Loeb’s win in Q1 yesterday, and fairly consistent results throughout today, secured 4th after four heats. Current SC points leader Ekstrom lies in fifth. The 2014/15 winner has been steadily improving throughout the weekend, gaining second fastest in Q4.
