One Step Better for Petter at Hockenheim World RX
iON Athlete Petter Solberg won round two of the World RX presented by Monster Energy Championship last weekend in Germany when the series supported the DTM’s first visit to the Hockenheim Ring of their 2015 season.
Having finished second at round one Solberg was out to go one better in Germany. His practice pace was strong and having hit trouble in heat one, he went on to win heat two. SDRX team mate Liam Doran ended the first day at the top of leader board with Petter in 6th. Petter took heat three and four by storm, heat victories rewarded him with pole position for the first semi-final with Doran alongside on the front row.
Having won his semi-final in style only another champion’s drive stood between Solberg and victory. After holding the lead into turn one he remained unchallenged and as he crossed the finish line in first place he launched his Citroën DS3 RX car into a 360° spin to a standing ovation from the adoring fans.
