KRISTOFFERSSON STAYS ON COURSE AS LOEB MISSES FINAL

Johan Kristoffersson and Timmy Hansen start on the front row of the World RX of Norway final after winning their respective semi-finals. 

Kristoffersson remains on course for a clean sweep after another lights-to-flag victory in semi-final one, keeping Andreas Bakkerud at bay throughout after both taking the joker on the final revolution. Their efforts were enough to come out ahead of Petter Solberg, who did enough to deny Loeb and consign him to his first semi-final exit of the 2018 season in what is a major blow to his title hopes. Robin Larsson and Anton Marklund followed up in fifth and sixth.  

There was more fortune for Peugeot in semi-final two as a split joker strategy for Hansen and his brother Kevin led to a win and a third place result, the pair split by Mattias Ekstrom in second. Niclas Gronholm, Kevin Eriksson and Janis Baumanis completed the top six.
