The restructuring of the athletic programs of the VAG Group ended up a stroke with the presence of Volkswagen Motorsport in the WRC and Audi Sport in the WEC. While the signing of Hannover focused its efforts on programs the’race-client’ with the Golf TCR and the future Volkswagen Polo R5, the brand from Ingolstadt limited their sports programs of the first rank to the Formula E and DTM. All in all, the World Rallycross has become the redoubt perfect for both brands. This has been patent with the technical support that will Volkswagen team formed by Petter Solberg and Johan Kristoffersson.
Without going to the behind Audi Sport has announced its official team in the World RX of face-to-2017, the entire time that the signing of the four rings will provide all support the formation EKS RX, with the team that Mattias Ekström was proclaimed champion of the specialty in 2016. In this way, Ekström will lead the team official of the firm of Ingolstadt this season, waiting for the confirmation from the pilot that it will be at the wheel of the second Audi S1 RX, all time that is not clear the continuity of Toomas Heikkinen in this work.
In this way, EKS RX will be able to have all the muscle of
Audi Sport and its technical partners when developing the Audi S1 RX, something
essential for staying on top of the World Rallycross before
renewed efforts of his rivals. A task that will be nothing
easy as that every time there are structures stronger and with greater support from the factory
as is the case of the official project of Peugeot with Hansen
Motorsport, the team of Ford Performance, or even this new programme, Volkswagen Motorsport next to Solberg and Kristoffersson.
