Bryntesson Wins Opening Round Supercar Lites in 2016 RallyX Nordic Championship

1 Mins read

Swedish Rallycross team JC Race Teknik scored two finishes in the Supercar Lites Final at the opening round of the 2016 RallyX Nordic Championship which took place at Skovde in Sweden as Thomas Bryntesson secured victory and William Nilsson finished in fourth place.

Norwegian driver Bryntesson dominated proceedings through out the event and would start from pole position before going on to take the Supercar Lites final win ahead of Tobias Brink and Kenyan driver Tejas Hirani. Nilsson came home in fourth place despite suffering from a bad start whilst fellow JC Race Teknik stablemate Joachim Hvaal qualified for the semi-finals before contact denied him any further chance of getting to the final.

Bryntesson was overjoyed at securing victory this weekend and is looking for more as he looks to carry on momentum in the opening round of the RX Lites Cup at Hockenheim this weekend, “It feels great to start the season like this. It has been a great event where everything has worked well, right from the start. I’m really happy that I took home maximum points. I was really nervous before the finals, but that’s good I think.

“It’s a sign that I’m focused. I have good support from the team and friends. My goal in Hockenheim is to maintain the momentum from the first RallyX Nordic event. I always hope to win, but it’s a tough category, so anything can happen.”

Team Boss Joel Christoffersson was satisfied with the result that his scored with all three drivers, “This result feels great, we are very satisfied. Thomas did a super race and had good pace all weekend. William had a good event and drove an efficient final.

“Joachim had good pace and made a great start in the semi-final. Unfortunately, he was pushed off in the first corner. Now we look forward to Hockenheim next week. There, Thomas and Joachim will have Sondre Evjen as a team mate, who competed with us during the winter season in RallyX On Ice.”
