Finland’s Niclas Gronholm scored an emotional home victory at the CapitalBox World RX of Finland, round four of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy today (30 August). Kristoffersson started from pole position for the final, thanks to victory in semi-final one, but it was Gronholm who led on lap one after overtaking Kristoffersson at the first corner. For the first time in 2020 though, Kristoffersson didn’t finish on the podium, he was also overtaken by Gronholm’s GRX team mate, Russia’s Timur Timerzyanov, in a race to the finish line. Sweden’s Timmy Hansen, racing a Peugeot 208 for Team Hansen, finished fifth after taking his joker on lap one and Monster Energy GCK RX Cartel’s Andreas Bakkerud completed the list of final finishers. Kristoffersson continues to lead the Drivers’ Championship standings, KYB Team JC maintains its position in the lead of the Teams’ Championship standings. That was a nice fight in both the semi-final and final, it was so close. Congratulations to Niclas for a fantastic drive in the final, and to the whole GRX Taneco team for having two drivers on the podium.
