Johan Kristoffersson, this year’s FIA World Rallycross Champion, dominated the last round of the 2017 season and took an incredible seventh victory in Cape Town.
The World RX weekend in South Africa was a nearly perfect event that wrapped up an excitingly brilliant season for PSRX Volkswagen World RX Team Sweden. After a temporary setback at the previous race in Germany, Johan was back on top as the series reached Africa for the first time. With the Swedish super driver’s latest victory, he has been on the podium 10 out of 12 times. It can’t get much better on the highest level of motorsport.
”The season has been nothing but fantastic” said Johan. ”I can hardly believe what I have accomplished. I have to thank Petter Solberg (team owner) and the whole team one more time – together we’ve been so strong throughout the season. I thought it would be possible when we talked about it at the start of the season, but that we actually managed to do it this well is incredible. This was an amazing way to finish the season. My seventh victory means that I have won more than half of the races – not a bad year!”
Definitely not a bad year – Johan’s season was record breaking in many ways. Not only did he set a record of wins in a row, he also set a record of victories during one season. And of course, PSRX Volkswagen Sweden got world champ titles both in the Teams’ Championship and the Drivers’ Championship.
