The 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship has been a difficult campaign for Petter Solberg, where the positives have matched the negatives so far. The Norwegian driver’s highest finish so far was second place in Belgium back in May.

The PSRX Volkswagen Sweden driver has kept busy during the break between the World RX of Sweden and the World RX of Canada, taking part in the World RX test at Riga in Latvia and also racing his son in Hillclimb competition back home in Norway.

“It’s been a really good time since the last race in Sweden. The test went really well in Riga, we found more small steps with the car that will help us from Canada,” explained Solberg.

With the circuit of Trois-Rivières offering a more street circuit like nature for the World RX Competitors, it often an event that challenges the setup of the Supercars with the concrete walls close by.

With the recent test complete, Solberg returns to the Canadian World RX venue with small improvements further added on the Volkswagen Polo as he looks to take his first win of the year.

“I don’t think there are any big steps forward in development with the Polo R Supercar now, but what we did at the test is try different solutions for the tracks we have coming in the second half of the year,” said the Double World RX Champion.

“They’re all quite different in their nature and we need to make sure we’ve maximised the potential from the set-up.”
