Johan Kristoffersson (S) and Anton Marklund (S) of the Volkswagen RX Sweden team scored valuable points towards the Drivers’ Championship at round four of the FIA World Rallycross Championship (WRX) at Lydden Hill (GB).
However, they missed out on the first podiums of the season. Kristoffersson finished eighth, Marklund eleventh. Guest starter Tanner Foust, who otherwise drives a Beetle in the Global Rallycross series (GRC), had to retire early in the weekend due to a technical issue.
While Marklund picked up seven points in the Drivers’ Championship, Kristoffersson’s twelve points took his tally to 70 in total. He remains third in the overall standings. The Swedish team is now third in the team world championship with 102 points.
