Topi Heikkinen to make World RX return with GRX Set at Loheac.

Toomas ‘Topi’ Heikkinen will make a return to the FIA World Rallycross Championship for round eight at Loheac.

The regular World RX driver line-up will be joined by four wildcard entries. Topi Heikkinen, famous of winning the World RX of Belgium in 2014 and 2015 – and finishing second in the Drivers’ Standings in 2014 – will race a third Hyundai i20 alongside Niclas Gronholm and Timur Timerzyanov in a GRX SET entry.

To date Heikkinen has claimed two event wins, eight podiums in fifty one event starts.

In a second appearance of the summer, after racing at Holjes, the Pailler brothers Fabien and Jonathan will race Peugeot 208 Supercars for the Pailler Competition team, and French legend Herve Knapick will drive his Citroen DS3. 

Kevin Abbring will return after missing the Canadian leg of World RX championship with the ESmotorsport – Labas GAS team’s Skoda Fabia.
