Posted on 30. Apr, 2018 by in Audi Canada

Andreas Bakkerud is an intensely quick learner. Still in fifth position after day one during Montalegre, a new motorist during EKS Audi Sport done a unequivocally clever display on Sunday. On his favorite lane in a plateau of Northern Portugal, a Norwegian won Q3 and Q4, so securing altogether feat in subordinate forward of Sébastien Loeb in a Peugeot. His teammate, Mattias Ekström, finished a clever subordinate opening of a Audi S1 EKS RX quattro cars in position three.

Then a initial reversal in a semi-finals: After carrying been bumped by Peugeot motorist Kevin Hansen in spin one, Ekström, in fourth position, missed a final – for a initial time given Canada in early Aug 2017. Bakkerud mislaid a position due to a scuffle as good but, in second place, done it into a final anyhow.

But thereafter Bakkerud, in his 51st run in a World Rallycross Championship, gifted a premiere: snow! “I’ve never driven a supercar on sleet before,” pronounced a Norwegian. “The conditions were intensely difficult. In a end, we usually finished fourth. But a fun about my initial subordinate feat in a Audi S1 EKS RX quattro outweighs any disappointment.” With his clever opening a Audi motorist modernized to second place in a World Championship.

“Today again showed how tighten feat and better are together in rallycross,” pronounced Ekström, who was half a second brief of creation it into a final. “Following a subordinate heats, things looked earnest yet then, after spin one of a semi-finals, unequivocally bad. Due to a impact from behind we simply mislaid too most time even yet we attempted all afterwards. The finish was disappointing. But we again showed that we have a quick car.”
