Kevin Hansen aims for RallyX Nordic Lites championship glory at Solvalla


“We really want to win the championship, the goal for the season is to win the RallyX Nordic championship and the RX Lites Cup, and this would be the first step towards that if we can do it,” said the Peugeot 208 Lites driver. We have been fastest all season and if we hadn’t had bad luck at the beginning it might be different now. We caught back 12 points in two races which is really good and I think we have good confidence that we can do it.”

While confident, Hansen knows that nothing is set in stone and he needs a good result this weekend to lift the crown for the second season in a row. “I am feeling really nervous, of course. There is more pressure because we won last year. We’ll try to switch that pressure to focus and do what we need to do. I think there is a lot more pressure on Brink;he knows we are the fastest. He has been on the podium in every race, which is really impressive, but he has been really up and down in the heats. I think we have been stable have a good strategyfor Sovalla,” continued the Red Bull Peugeot Hansen Junior Team driver

Since the final round of the championship last season, the team and has made significant steps forward with the setup of the 208 Lites and hope to be even faster this weekend. It was a big race last year for me, we finished third and took the championship - I have very good memories from that weekend. But, I was not really on the fastest pace. For sure we know where we can gain more time this weekend. The car is very different now. Sovalla is more of a racing track than some others. I think it could suit us really well. We’re going for the win and the title– that’s the target!”
