Volkswagen RX Sweden driver Johan Kristoffersson once again offered strong competition in his Volkswagen Polo RX Supercar in the fourth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill. He fought for a place in the final when he suffered a puncture, but still keeps his position in the overall classification.
Johan Kristoffersson finished seventh overall at the end of day one, and progressed through Q3 and Q4 on day two to make the semi-finals. He was set to reach the final for the third time in the opening four events of the season, but a puncture put him out of contention.
“We had some small issues in practice which continued into Q1, but we had a good race and finished fifth. In Q2 it wasn’t the best but we managed to be tenth,” said Johan. “We improved the car a lot for Sunday but we’re still missing some speed, we need to find a few tenths. In the semi-final I was in the position to move into the final but we had a puncture.”
Despite a race weekend with some minor difficulties, Johan is still in third place in the overall Drivers’ Championship standings and will be out looking to advance his position at the fifth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, which takes place at Hell, Norway (June 11 – 12).
