Tens of thousands of fans are headed to Höljes for the third round of the 2023 FIA World Rallycross Championship this weekend (1-2 July), with the electrifying action on-track set to be matched by the accompanying off-track fever.Tucked away deep in the Värmland forest, the motorsport mecca of Höljes – which has been staging rallycross events for almost half a century – has traditionally been a happy hunting-ground for local heroes, with previous winners including Johan Kristoffersson, Timmy Hansen and Mattias Ekström.Having triumphed in the opening two rounds of the season, Kristoffersson will once again be the favourite as he chases a sixth world championship crown. It’s time to send it!”With the event universally known as the ‘Magic Weekend’, Hansen knows the entertainment won’t be limited to just the track, with fans already setting up camp in ‘Happy Street’, ready to party the night away once the racing ends each day.“There’s a huge festival atmosphere and a great vibe,” reveals the 31-year-old, who triumphed at Höljes the last time World RX visited Värmland in 2021.
