Andri Oun To Contest 2016 EuroRX


Estonian Rallycross Driver Andri Oun has confirmed to the FIA World Rallycross Championship website that he will contest the full FIA European Rallycross Championship in 2016 using a Mk7 Ford Fiesta Supercar run by Reinsalu Sport.

Oun took part in the 2015 Estonian Rallycross Championship and finished the season in third place whilst his team-mate in the Estonian Championship was Janis Baumanis, who secured the 2015 title and has been confirmed for 2016 as a WorldRX Team Austria driver. Oun is already familiar with the various WorldRX and EuroRX events and is looking forward to this year in EuroRX:

“I really like rallycross as it is a really spectacular sport from inside the car and from the outside too. I will drive the same car that Janis [Baumanis] won the Estonian championship last season for the first part of the year. As the season progresses I will drive our new car,” said Oun. “The car has had a lot of development and the team is working really hard to make it better and better.”

In what is turning out to be a quality entry list for the 2016 FIA European Rallycross Championship, the Estonian has made his objectives clear:

“I would like to get into the top-12 this season as much as I can, and to be able to test the car in different situations. Hopefully we will also have a top level driver with good experience to come and drive for our team, and if they do I really feel that they can fight for top results.”

The 2016 FIA European Rallycross Championship kicks off in May at the Mettet circuit in Belgium.
