Two-time Champion Johan Kristoffersson hints at a potential return to racing in the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2019. 

The Swede published a video on social media over the weekend of him driving a "Bauhaus" branded Volkswagen Polo Supercar.

Kristoffersson was left without a seat for the 2019 season when PSRX Volkswagen Sweden withdrew from the championship citing "the loss of competitors in the FIA World Rallycross Championship" following EKS Audi Sport, Peugeot Sport and Olsberg MSE's withdrawal from the championship. 

With an uncertain future in Rallycross, the Swede announced that he will be competing in the 2019 FIA World Touring Car Cup [10 events], and will compete on a part-time basis in rallying.

Despite the excitement surrounding the Swede's social media video, it still remains unclear if he will be competing in any World RX rounds in 2019.

Kristoffersson's social media video sparked the conversation of his likely return to World Rallycross. But, an interesting conversation developed between Johan and Gronholm RX.

Gronholm RX posted the comment: "Comeback?" to which the Swede replied: "haven’t missed a race yet, can’t count as a comeback."

Is a comeback on the cards? Only time will tell!
