Coulthard Set To Evaluate Rallycross Options

1 Mins read

Ex-Formula 1 Grand Prix winner David Coulthard will be heading to the third round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship in Norway as a brand ambassador for Cooper Tires.

“Rallycross is one of motorsport’s hidden jewels that really deserves the additional investment and support it is now getting,” said Coulthard.

“It’s a truly spectacular form of the sport and, because of its gladiatorial nature, it’s one of the most entertaining forms of racing there is, so I’m keen to go along and get some proper insight into what it’s all about.”

Although he is there purely on duty for Cooper Tires the Scottish driver didn’t rule out a possible future in Rallycross where he could once again do battle with old F1 sparring partner Jacques Villeneuve.

“I might not be getting behind the wheel on this occasion but I’m certainly not ruling that out for the future and I’d like to get stuck into the weekend in Norway in some fashion, so we’ll see what happens. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity for me to scout it all out.”

Coulthard still has close ties to Red Bull who themselves are heavily involved in rallycross and recently backed Andrew Jordan on his wildcard entry at Lydden Hill.
