World RX Season Review: Timmy Hansen

For Timmy Hansen, 2023 was a season to forget. Not since 2018 had the former world champion failed to win a round in World RX, and that year also mirrored his final position in the overall standings – a career low-equalling sixth.

For Timmy Hansen, 2023 was unquestionably a season to forget. Not since 2018 had the former world champion failed to win a round in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, and that year also mirrored his final position in the overall standings – a career low-equalling sixth.


The tone was set early on. A mistake on the last lap of the semi-final in Portugal saw the Swede make unfortunate contact with Hansen World RX Team stablemate Kevin Hansen, and he was subsequently collected by Gustav Bergström.


His challenge in Hell was then ended by a contentious and ill-tempered coming-together with Ole Christian Veiby – for which the Norwegian was disqualified – and while he belatedly reached the rostrum with the runner-up spoils on home soil at Höljes, by then it was too late to salvage any kind of title tilt.


The second half of the campaign did not offer much more cheer. By his own admission, Hansen struggled to get comfortable in the ZEROID X1, and no further silverware was forthcoming. The 30-year-old is fired-up to make an immediate return to form in 2024...
