The defending FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson claims a 'clean sweep' in Norway, and now leads the championship by 31 points from his nearest rival.  

The Swede’s took his fourth win from of the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship in dominant fashion after taking wins in Qualifying, the Semi-Final and going on to win the Supercar by 0.788 seconds.

“What an incredible weekend. I have to say from the start of the weekend I felt really comfortable with the car – it’s amazing when you have the car in your hands like this, you feel you do exactly what you want," said Kristoffersson.

After the World RX of Great Britain, Kristoffersson claimed that the Polo R Supercar had a lot more potential, and it was just a matter of unlocking the pace. His dominance in Norway is proof that with the right set-up the Polo R Supercar has a lot more pace.

“This Polo responds perfectly to what I ask and knowing I have a car like that under me gives such confidence," said Kristoffersson. "It’s also exactly what we need in rallycross, when you have to change direction so quickly, you need everything to be working like this – it needs to be like the glove on your hand and that’s what we had this weekend."

Johan Kristoffersson has now become the second driver in World RX history to have secured a maximum points’ haul following Andreas Bakkerud’s feat in Norway two years ago.

“This is such a nice race, I love to win here. OK, Sweden is my home, but I live close [to here] and this victory is nice, but at the same time the 30 points is even more important," he adds.

“What we have to say again here is that this was another fantastic performance from PSRX Volkswagen Sweden. We had the strategy and it worked well – the final was quite OK when we came out of the first corner P1 and two. It’s fantastic to have my team-mate with me on the podium.”
