Petter Solberg renews its reign on the World RX. The champion of the WRC 2003, Subaru has re-released his title in the World of Rallycross and has added his second crown in a row, being the only rider that has managed to win the title since the championship became a World FIA 2014. Although the victory in the final appointment in Rosario has been for Robin Larsson, the Norwegian Petter Solberg arrived with enough advantage to Argentina as to be proclaimed the champion in the earlier rounds, without the need to take risks to the pressure exerted by Timmy Hansen.
In fact, Petter Solberg did not exhibit a lot of
regularity in Argentina. With the championship in mind, the Norwegian took
calm. Solberg was fourth in the first round prior, twelfth in the
second ‘Heat’ for a few problems in the gearbox and second in the third
sleeve. The suspension of the fourth round prior because of the dust in suspension
he allowed adding 13 points, good enough to be champion. Despite their
attempts, Timmy Hansen was only able to add two more points, so they focused on
the fight for the victory in Rosario.
Robin Larsson won the victory in a final
starring the touches between Mattias Ekström and Petter Solberg,
that could only be third party. Despite this rough end, Solberg has
closed a year really bright in the who has added three wins on absolute.
The ex-pilot of the WRC won three of the most symbolic events as they are
Hockenheim, Lydden Hill -cathedral of the rallycross – and the Circuit of
Barcelona-Catalunya. Three wins that have served to counteract the
second half of championship Timmy Hansen that with the Peugeot 208 RX has
defeated in Hell, Lohéac and Istanbul Park.
The baggage of Petter Solberg in the World RX is simply
spectacular. With five victories in his first season and three in 2015, is the
more rider a winner of this new championship under the auspices of the FIA. A
condition that will try to continue to keep the next year but during
weeks rumors have him placed back in the WRC. Except surprise, Petter Solberg will continue in the World RX in 2016, but will not
his usual Citroën DS3 RX. This car is put on sale, and for the coming year
it will compete with other model.
