BLOCK AND EKSTROM ADD TO STAR LINE-UP FOR HELL RX

World RX

12 June 2014

Round three of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy – World RX of Norway – boasts a truly international line-up with drivers from a variety of motorsport disciplines including F1, WRC, DTM and X Games. Amongst the stars competing in Norway are American Gymkhana hero Ken Block plus two-time DTM Champion Mattias Ekstrom, who makes his World RX debut this weekend as part of the all-new EKS RX Team.

Set 25 miles east of the city of Trondheim, Hell is located in the Lanke area of the municipality of Stjørdal and will host round three of the Championship. The event has attracted a staggering 38 Supercars in the headline Supercar category with the supporting TouringCar and Super1600 categories attracting a further 39 entries. Hell also marks the second round of the five-round FIA European Rallycross Championship (Euro RX), of which there are 23 drivers eligible to score points.

Currently leading the drivers’ standings and eager to secure a win on home turf is Ford Olsbergs MSE driver Andreas Bakkerud. “My win at Lydden felt like a dream and it’s incredible to be leading the Championship as I get ready to race at my home event,” explained the 23-year-old who was a spotter for former F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jnr at X Games in Austin last weekend.

Another home favourite will be Norwegian star Petter “Hollywood” Solberg. As one of the most experienced drivers on the grid, Solberg and his Citroen DS3 Supercar will be a formidable match. “Winning means everything to me,” admitted Solberg who won the World RX season-opener in Portugal back in May. “It’s why I’m here and why I’m racing. We go to the race second in the championship, just three points down from [Andreas] Bakkerud. I want to come away at the top of the table again. That’s the aim… and there won’t be a happier Norwegian than me if we win at Hell.”

Joining World RX for the first time will be popular rally driver Ken Block and his Hoonigan Racing Division Ford Fiesta. Block – who became an internet sensation as a result of his hugely popular Gymkhana series on YouTube – will contest a three-round World RX campaign in 2014. The American explained: “I’ve been enjoying racing rallycross the last few years and I’ve been keeping an eye on the European circuits – they look like really fun tracks. I’ve also been curious about the level of competition and I’m looking forward to seeing how I stack up against the guys that are running in World RX.”

A brand new team will also shake up the World RX proceedings in Norway as Swedish DTM star Mattias Ekstrom will be joined by reigning Junior World Rally Champion Pontus Tidemand in the all-new EKS RX Team. Fielding two Audi S1 Supercars, the squad has been flat out preparing the cars for its debut on the world stage but team owner Ekstrom ensures that the wait will be worth it: “Quality is always the most important thing for me – I’d rather be five minutes late rather than rushing and compromising on quality. Our ultimate aim in World RX is to become World Champions. I have also never been to an FIA prize giving before so that would be pretty cool too!”

Adding to the star-studded line-up in Norway will be former F1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve who returns to his Albatec Racing-prepared Peugeot 208 Supercar after missing the previous round at Lydden Hill. Villeneuve will be joined in the two-man squad by team owner and multiple British Rallycross Championship event winner, Andy Scott.

In the Teams’ Championship, Ford Olsbergs MSE and its team drivers Andreas Bakkerud/Reinis Nitiss will be hoping to extend their 22 points lead over VW Marklund’s Topi Heikkinen/Anton Marklund. PSRX lie third in the standings with Peugeot-Hansen’s Timur Timerzyanov/Timmy Hansen currently fourth. Monster Energy World RX Team’s Liam Doran and Krzysztof Skorupski have had a difficult start to the season but will be looking to make amends in Norway: an event which Doran is particularly fond of after the Englishman clinched victory in 2013.

After a phenomenal outing in his Audi A1 Supercar at the previous round at Lydden Hill, Robin Larsson is currently leading the hotly contested FIA European Rallycross Championship. He will be joined by a number of notable entrants including Frode Holte in the Hyundai i20 Supercar, Swedish Touring Car Champion Tommy Rustad and reigning Swedish Rallycross Champion Peter Hedstrom. Current French Rallycross Champion Jerome Grosset-Janin will also be competing in a Renault Clio Supercar.

Elsewhere, Henning Solberg’s son Oscar will make his international debut in a Citroen C2 in the Super1600 class while his father competes alongside lady driver Ramona Karlsson in a pair of Saab 9-3 Supercars. Karlsson will be joined by four other female competitors at Hell including Super1600 drivers Lina Marie Holt, Ada Marie Hvaal (cousin of PSRX Supercar driver Alex Hvaal) and Lisa Marie Sandmo. Camilla Antonsen will compete in the TouringCar category.

BBC F1 commentator David Coulthard will also visit Hell as a brand ambassador for Cooper Tires, the Championship’s control tyre supplier. The former F1 driver 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.”

Martin Anayi – Managing Director for World RX at IMG Motorsport – concluded: “At the start of the season I would never have imagined that we’d be attracting such a huge field of entries in our inaugural year as a World Championship. I was astounded by the number of entries we had at Lydden Hill but Hell has proved equally as popular with just less than 80 cars taking part across the Supercar, Super1600 and TouringCar categories. It will be an honour to welcome Ken Block to Norway on his World RX debut – he is the perfect example of a driver who can help us to attract a younger demographic watching our sport. With the inclusion of Block and also Mattias Ekstrom in the new EKS RX team, we’re once again showcasing our sport as one of the most dynamic championships in the world. We have a spread of drivers competing from a number of different motorsport disciplines, as well as some hugely promising young guns who are at the beginning of their careers – I can’t wait to see who will come out on top in Norway.”

AL-ATTIYAH ?? SEALS 14TH QATAR ?? RALLY WIN AND FIRST REGIONAL SUCCESS FOR VOLKSWAGEN’S POLO GTI R5 ??

LUSAIL (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah cruised through the final six gravel special stages of the Manateq Qatar International Rally to seal a convincing victory on Saturday.

A record-breaking 14th victory in his home event also marked a remarkable 70th MERC victory in the 211-event history of the FIA Middle East Rally Championships since 1984. His French co-driver Matthieu Baumel duly claimed his third win in Qatar and a career 18th in the MERC.

The success also marked the first outright FIA championship rally win for Volkswagen’s Polo GTI R5 that made its debut at the WRC in Spain last October and claimed WRC 2 success in Sweden in February with Norwegian driver Ole Christian Veiby. Customer Polos have already won national events in Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Latvia this year
