Test of bravery for Audi drivers during rallycross in Belgium

Posted on 08. May, 2018 by in Audi Canada

The dual EKS Audi Sport drivers are roving to Mettet with churned feelings as well. In 2016, Mattias Ekström won a World RX turn there, though has also had some upsetting encounters with a tire walls in prior events. “The fans and a atmosphere in Belgium are great. But this is one of those strange, synthetic competition marks we expostulate on from time to time,” says a Swede. “Actually, a lane has usually turnoffs and this large downhill jump. The racing line is narrow. It’s formidable to grasp a quick path time and a Joker Lap is so sleazy and delayed that we feel like you’re stopping.” Because overtaking is formidable EKS Audi Sport has focused on serve optimizing a starts in new days, among other things.

Ekström’s new teammate, Andreas Bakkerud, now a World RX runner-up trailing pretension defender Johan Kristoffersson in a Volkswagen, finished his exam during Mettet during a commencement of 2018 with a fantastic accident. “I’ll really try to equivocate that this weekend,” a Norwegian says. “Mettet has always been my weakest turn in a World RX to date. we need to urge there and uncover a coherence we had in my initial World RX events in a Audi S1 EKS RX quattro.” He is in astonishment of a Belgian track: “It’s easy to make a mistake there and pile-up into a tire walls.” That he reeled off a largest series of kilometers in a pre-season exam during Mettet and gained some-more certainty in a routine is a positive, he adds.

Bakkerud visited a Audi plant in Ingolstadt final week. From there he trafficked on to Hockenheim to keep his fingers crossed for Mattias Ekström in his DTM farewell race. Subsequently, a dual Audi drivers got in a mood again for World RX turn 3 by pushing competition karts.
