As mentioned a few days ago, Per Eklund was competing in the first round of the European Rallycross Championship in a new 9-3 Sport Sedan.
As could be expected given that it’s a new chassis, Per had some trouble with suspension settings and managed an honorable 9th position overall, securing him 8 championship points. A great effort seeing he was 16th after the first round of heats. The round was won by Kenneth Hansen in a Citroen, which would have made the locals happy, I’m sure.
The next round is in Portugal, May 14-15.
