VIDEO: Petter Solberg in 2013 FIA European Rallycross Championship
Anyone else looking forward to the 2013 FIA European Rallycross Championships (ERC) this year? This short viral might get you in the mood. And if not, how about the fact that WRC legend, Petter 'Hollywood' Solberg – fresh from his win in his Viking Motorsport MkII Escort in the Historic Rally Sweden – is heading to the first round at Lydden Hill, March 31 - April. Petter is set to be driving a 600bhp Citroën DS3 Supercar – built and run by his own team. And, according to sources at the ERC "appears set to focus on rallycross having called time on his career in the WRC." How cool is that? Following in the footsteps of another WRC legend, Marcus Gronholm, who drive the Best Buy Focus with our pal David Binks recently. See that article here in Road Magazine Issue 20.
And see the annual calendar for 2013 – and much more – on the great ERC website.
See you there... Hollywood!
