Kevin heads to season finale with RX Lites Cup lead

2015-10-13

Hansen has led the championship since his home round of the series at Holjes in Sweden, and has a margin of 11 points going into the final event of the year. The Peugeot Red Bull Hansen Junior Team driver had a strong run to a podium finish at the Italian venue last season, and is looking forward to the weekend.

“I really feel blessed to have this opportunity, to race in what I love and have a chance of the title. We will take the same approach with us as we have done to the last two events, to have fun. I’m sure it will be really fun being back out battling in Franciacorta. It’s really makes me happy that we can fight for the championship, we will do our best and try to win as always, then see how far it can take us,” explained Hansen.

The Peugeot 208 Lites driver is excited to be racing in Italy, a country steeped in motorsport history.“This circuit is very much like Barcelona, so it will be a challenge for sure. But with the crew I have, with Graham [Rodemark] in charge, I believe we will have a fast car.I know the 208 will be a dream to drive as always, and with the speed we had in Turkey, I think we can fight forvictory.”

Overseen by experiencedBritish engineer Rodemark, Hansen thinks the team dynamic is better than ever. “Everything in the team has been working so well this year. That’s thanks to Graham, Kieran and Toby. I believe in them 100%. Together we have a great opportunity to develop during the weekends. I’m looking forward to us working together again this weekend and having fun.”
