Three FIA World Rallycross Championship drivers scored their first podiums in round one at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi last weekend, and two of those drivers were part of the perfect team in the first Fantasy RX race of the season.

Team Hansen MJP’s Kevin Hansen took victory in the Middle East with the Peugeot 208 WRX and it was Birtygirl, with 1834 points that won the first Fantasy RX event of the year, with 58 points more than closet rival Kryvija. Third was shared by three competitors, Team barrable 22, TimeSpaceSku RX and KBRX, on 1669 points.

Along with his victory in World RX, Hansen also scored the most Fantasy points from the four Qualifiers, semi-finals and final (700). GRX Taneco’s Niclas Gronholm, who finished second in Abu Dhabi after a penalty, was second of the top Fantasy RX scorers with (600).

Birtygirl’s victory was thanks to picking a team of Gronholm, Hansen, Krisztian Szabo and Oliver Bennett, and getting three correct bonus questions correct too, worth 23 points each. The ultimate team was Pool A: Gronholm, Pool B Hansen, Pool C Szabo and Pool D Rokas Baciuska, which totalled 1980 points.

Interestingly, only eight people correctly picked that final would have six different nationalities, and the most picked driver of all was Kevin Hansen in Pool B, selected by 62% of competitors.

Entries for round two will open following the announcement of the Barcelona RX entry list.
