Hedstroms Motorsport has signed former FIA European Rallycross Championship race winner Alexander Hvaal and his younger brother Joachim to race for the team in Euro RX this season, alongside regular driver Peter Hedstrom. 

Alexander Hvaal and Hedstrom will race ex-Marklund Motorsport Volkswagen Polo RX Supercars that the team used at the end of 2016, while Joachim will move up from finishing on the podium at events in RX2 last year to race an ex-OlsbergsMSE Ford Fiesta in his first Supercar season. 

Both Hvaal brothers and Swede Christer Dalmans will also drive for the team in the RallyX Nordic Championship, where Hvaal finished on the podium five times in 2016 driving an Eklund Motorsport Volkswagen Beetle. “I feel no pressure but see this instead as a great opportunity,” said Alexander Hvaal. “Moving to Hedstroms Motorsport feels right and I already know that the car suits me very well. We are aiming to do many kilometres of testing before the season.” 

Triple Swedish Rallycross Champion Hedstrom will also race in selected FIA World Rallycross Championship races alongside his Euro RX assault.

“I'm aiming to drive in all of the European Championship with a few appearances in the World Championship too,” he said. “I will also manage the team in RallyX Nordic. Running three at almost every competition shows that the team is growing like crazy. We have good people working for us and everyone is pulling in the same direction. This really is a summer to look forward to.”
