Ekström wins in Barcelona

Mattias Ekström won the FIA World Rallycross Championship event in Spain, that was held at Circuit de Catalunya.

On a part of the Formula 1 track, we saw the 9th round of this years Championship held, and the Swede not only took the win but also the Championship lead. In his Audi S1 he won the final with almost one second to Timmy Hansen in Peugeot 208 in P2. Timur Timerzyanov im Ford Fiesta took 3rd place.

Petter Solberg only managed 7th position and thereby lost many points to Ekström in the battle of this years title.

Ekström is weighing up his options at the moment. The final Round of DTM clashes with the German round of the FIA WorldRX at Buxtehude, so he is in negotiations with Audi at the moment. He is out of the title hunt in DTM so it should be an easy decision, but it all has to depend on contracts and so.

Next time FIA World Rallycross Championship is back on the track is in 14 days, when the Latvian round is held.
