Hansen-Wins-Turkey-RX

 

Timmy Hansen has continued his run of good form in the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy after winning this weekend’s Intercity World RX of Turkey.  It is the seventh consecutive event that Team Peugeot-Hansen has finished on the podium.  Ford Olsbergs MSE driver Andreas Bakkerud took the runner-up spot and third place was taken by Team Volkswagen Sweden driver Johan Kristoffersson.

 

This weekend’s result sees Hansen close the gap on Championship leader Petter Solberg - Hansen is now 19 points adrift of Solberg in the overall drivers’ standings with two rounds still remaining.  “We lost too many points this weekend which isn’t so good for the Championship, now the pressure is really on for Italy,” explained Solberg.  The Norwegian failed to make today’s final after he broke his car’s driveshaft in the first semi-final and nursed his Citroen DS3 Supercar to the finish.
