HOLJES RX ENTRIES REVEALED
Thursday 16th of June 2016
The official entry list for the sixth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Holjes in Sweden (1-3 June) has been released by the FIA, where a record-breaking entry of 111 drivers – including 26 Swedes – will take part across the World RX, Euro RX and support classes.
19 Supercars will compete in World RX, where the 17 permanent drivers headed by championship leader Mattias Ekstrom will be joined by regular driver Davy Jeanney and Sweden’s Rickard Goransson, who will return to an OlsbergsMSE Ford Fiesta Supercar following a pair of outings in 2014, which included a podium finish at Franciacorta in Italy on his debut.
In the Euro RX Supercar category, which is currently led by Sweden’s Kevin Hansen thanks to victories in the first two events of the year, 28 drivers will compete, including a first start of the season for Renault Clio driver Lukas Walfridson.
Hungary’s Krisztian Szabo leads the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Super1600 heading to Holjes in a capacity 25-car field. The FIA European Rallycross Championship for TouringCar will also be in action for its third round, led by points leader Fredrik Magnussen.
A bumper-entry of 18 cars will compete in the RX Lites Cup, where the lead of the championship is currently separated by a single point between France’s Cyril Raymond and Norway’s Thomas Bryntesson. Former Super1600 podium finisher Johan Larsson will make his debut in the class, as will Santosh Berggren, driving the car that Kevin Hansen won the title in last season.
