Swedenā€™s Johan Kristoffersson took the TQ (top qualifier) position in round seven of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, the Logitech G FIA World RX of Pirineus-Barcelona 2030 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, but didnā€™t have things all his own way in qualifying. Kristoffersson Motorsportā€™s Kristoffersson took the quickest time in Q1 and Q3 but in Q2, Monster Energy GCK RX Cartelā€™s Andreas Bakkerud, from Norway, claimed his first quickest time of the 2020 season, and with the Renault Megane RS RX. Kristoffersson and Bakkerud sandwiched Team Hansenā€™s Timmy Hansen, from Sweden in the Q3 results, and the same three drivers hold the top three placings in the Intermediate Classification ahead of the semi-finals, proving the good work done by the GCK and Hansen teams since the previous rounds in Riga-Latvia. World RX Driversā€™ Championship leader Kristoffersson did have fortune on his side however, his Volkswagen Polo almost rolling at the first turn of Q2 after contact with KYB Team JCā€™s Robin Larsson, from Sweden. Kristoffersson and Bakkerud will start together on row one of semi-final one. Hansen brothers Timmy and Kevin Hansen, the one-two finishers from the Catalunya World RX round in 2019, will start together on row one of semi-final two, Finlandā€™s Niclas Gronholm, the GRX Taneco driver, and GCK Bilsteinā€™s Anton Marklund, from Sweden will take row two.
