After a succesful debut start with #YellowSquad at the RallyX Nordic season-opener in Höljes, Henrik Krogstad from Norway will be returning for the third round of the series held at Arvika next weekend.
Krogstad will continue to fight for the title in the campaign as he is currently sitting in fourth place overall in the championship standings after the two opening rounds at the All-Star ‘Magic Weekend’ earlier this month.
In the first round held on the Thursday of the All-Star ‘Magic Weekend’, Krogstad claimed a respectful second place in his first outing with the new team, after progressing from same position in the semi-final.
On the Saturday and Sunday, the second round was held and again Krogstad reached the final, this time in very wet conditions but this time he had to settle for fourth.
“I can’t wait to get racing again. Arvika is a track I’ve raced at before so I’m looking forward to that, and keeping the good momentum going from Höljes.” Krogstad said and continued to talk about his plans for the next weekend;
“My goal for the weekend is of course to do better than last time, and there’s only one place more to get: the victory. So that’s the aim for the weekend. But, of course, we have to work hard and keep the rhythm going.”
Both Krogstad and his Czech Republic team mate Dan Skocdopole claimed heat wins last time out and proves that the new team led by Kevin Hansen, Eric Färén and Timmy Hansen, can be the title contender this year.
Skocdopole, who joined Krogstad in reaching the final in his maiden Supercar Lites appearance in the opening round, will be missing the next round due to the COVID-19 restrictions issued by the Czech government to travel to a foreign country.
