The stage is set for one of the most memorable title showdowns in World Rallycross Championship history with Timmy Hansen, Andreas Bakkerud and Kevin Hansen all in contention to claim their maiden championship title.

For much of the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship, these three drivers have approached each World RX round with an aim of getting the best results possible.

Timmy Hansen leads the championship with 187 points. Monster Energy RX Cartel's Andreas Bakkerud is second on 186 points. While younger brother Kevin Hansen is eight points behind in third on 179 points. 

Heading into the season finale on 09-10 November in Cape Town, mental strength will be a key factor as there is a six-week break between the Latvian round and the title decider in Cape Town. 

Kevin Hansen believes that staying at the top of his game in the six-week break is really important. 

"A lot can change in six weeks, so we will make sure to stay on top of our game, drive some TitansRX and prepare ourselves for the final showdown," he said. "It's really important to keep the racing up: when everyone goes to Cape Town for Q1, they will not be as fresh and racing-minded as we will be."

"In total, with 12 qualifying starts – and hopefully four semi-finals and four finals – between now and Cape Town, we will be keeping our race game really strong."
