For Johan Kristoffersson, the 2018 World RX of Canada will have the same approach from him as the rest of the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship has had so far: Start from Zero and work your way to the top step of the podium.

The Swedish driver has five wins to his credit and is looking to increase his advantage at the top of the Drivers Standings at the demanding street circuit nature of Trois-Rivières this weekend.

“Nothing changes. The feeling is the same for me like it is at every race: I start again from zero. I go to Canada and I want to score the best points possible,” explained Kristoffersson.

“Yes, we have this lead and I’m really happy that the lead is bigger than it was after round six last season, but it doesn’t mean anything. No job is done yet. One bad weekend and everything is completely open again.”

Whilst he holds a clear advantage in the Drivers Championship, The PSRX Volkswagen Sweden driver is under no illusion as to the tight and twisty nature of the circuit and also the perils of running a six hundred horsepower Supercar so close to the concrete barriers.

The racing has always been close in Canada since it joined the Championship and often produces some shock results over the weekend. Kristoffersson knows what he must to to leave he event unscathed and in front of the competition.

“The plan is the same: to push as hard as possible and to look to control the weekend as much as possible. I like Canada, it’s a fun place and an interesting track,” said the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Champion.

“Driving on a street circuit is always really demanding, there’s zero room to make a mistake. We won here last year and a repeat of that result would be really special for me.”
