Former WRC driver Stohl joins World Rallycross field in Argentina

1 Mins read

Former World Rally Championship driver Manfred Stohl is the latest driver to join the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy for the final round in Argentina.

Stohl took part in over 100 WRC events between 1991 and 2012 and will make his World Rally Cross debut alongside Petter Solberg in a second PSRX Citroen DS3 Supercar.

“I have lots of friends in Argentina from my rallying days and it will be nice to go back to San Luis where I competed in national rallies and got to know the area well,” explained Stohl.

“Petter and I have been good friends for a long time and I have visited him at some RX events in the past. Now, thanks to Petter, I have the unique opportunity to drive an RX Supercar in Argentina alongside the new World RX Champion.”

Stohl had a brief taste of rallycross last week when he tested a Ford Fiesta RX Supercar in Austria, unfortunately he wont get chance to test the DS3 before the race weekend though.

“The cars were already on their way to Argentina when it was confirmed that I would be joining Petter in the PSRX team so unfortunately there hasn’t been any time to test but I’m really looking forward to the race and want to get as much experience of RX as possible,” concluded Stohl.
