Petter Solberg tackles the Joker Lap Jump in Loheac – FIA WORLD RX

The FIA World Rallycross Championship made its annual pilgrimage to the ‘Temple of Rallycross’ last weekend when it visited Loheac in France.  A massive crowd of over 75,000 people watched on as iON’s Petter Solberg blasted through the heats to line up in pole position on the grid for the second semi-final.

Petter stayed out front as others battled hard behind.  With a front row grid slot for the final Petter couldn’t get ahead of Timmy Hansen who took victory for Peugeot on their home turf.  Petter finished second with local favourite  Jean-Baptiste Dubourg in third.

Barcelona is the next stop on the World RX calendar, the track is currently being prepared for the 600bhp Monsters to race in a little under two weeks’ time.  Petter will look to defend his 37 point championship lead.
