Two-time FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson sets his sights on a record 11th win of the 2018 season. 

Last year Kristoffersson targeted a 11th podium from 12 events and he achieved the target by clinching a win at the season finale in Cape Town. 

After securing the teams' championship in Buxtehude last time out, Kristoffersson feels less pressure heading into the season finale, but aims to help his team-mate secure second in the championship.

“In some ways it’s actually easier. Last time when we went to Germany Petter and I were thinking to the teams’ championship and we sorted that out there," said Kristoffersson"Now I will do what I can to help Petter to get the second place, but, really, this is pure racing, pure competition this time."

The Swede heads to Cape Town with a remarkable record of 10 wins this season, and could make it a record breaking 11 wins in a season. 

Sebastien Loeb is the only other driver to have won a race this season (in Belgium).

The fight for second in the FIA World Rallycross Champiopnship heads to Cape Town, South Africa, while Johan aims to have the best race that he can and enjoy the weekend. 

“There’s no overall championship to fight for, we just have to make the best race we can and really enjoy ourselves," the Swede said. "The pressure is definitely not off, it’s never off when you are lined up against five other supercars and you’re all heading for the same piece of racetrack at turn one!"

The unstoppable Swede, Johan Kristoffersson claimed victory at the inaugural World Rallycross of South Africa, and also set the fastest lap - 40.393s. Can he claim victory for the second year in a row? He certainly wants to end this season on a high...

“And, don’t forget, you’re never better than your last result, so the best way to go into the winter and the off-season is on the back of a win and that’s what I’d like to do in Cape Town,” said Kristoffersson.
