Kevin Eriksson to drive third Honda in Atlantic City

1 Mins read

Kevin Eriksson will make his Red Bull GRC Supercars début this weekend at Atlantic City, driving a third Honda Civic for Olsbergs.

The Swede, who previously raced in GRC Lites, will drive for the factory team alongside compatriot Sebastian Eriksson and former champion Joni Wiman.

“I am excited to be back in Red Bull Global Rallycross,” he said. “I enjoyed hard battles here in 2014 with Mitchell (deJong) in Lites which have helped me to develop as a driver. I am looking forward to driving the Honda Civic having seen its development over the course of the season, and hopefully my input with the team helps further develop the car.”

Olsbergs Honda have had three cars at every event so far this season but this will be the first time all three have run together.

Their expansion comes on a weekend which will see the biggest Supercars entry list of the season with Chris Atkinson also joining the fold, and Nelson Piquet Jr. making his second start of the year.
