Mattias Ekström plays in two bands. Since the beginning of the
season the pilot Swedish has a dual program in which he combines his role
official pilot of Audi in the DTM with their involvement in the World
Rallycross with Audi S1 RX of their own team. A program that even came
to unify in the appointment opening of the German contest where in the same order
week competed at Hockenheim in both categories. However, the calendar
the DTM and World Rallycross crash and the pilot Swedish you should choose.
In this aspect, and according to ‘Autosport’, Mattias Ekström
is willing to give priority to the World Rallycross, any time your options
title are greater. However, in the absence of four appointments to the end of the
season, Ekström occupies the second position in the championship with five points
unless the leader Petter Solberg. The result that you can get to reap in
the next round of the World Rallycross at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this
next weekend will be crucial to make the decision, because
his options to the title of the DTM are practically nil.
In this way and a little that accompany the result in
Barcelona, Mattias Ekström will compete at Estering and not at Hockenheim,
quotes from the World Rallycross and the DTM matching during the 15 and 16 of
October. Discarded the way of play both categories at the same time, because
the distance between both circuits is 600 kilometers, Ekström should ask
permission to the staff of Audi Sport to compete in rallycross, if you so wish. Not
it is expected a lot of opposition on the part of the brand in Ingolstadt, the whole time
the Swedish compete with an Audi S1 RX.
