Johan Kristoffersson is the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Champion
  • Defending champion from Sweden wins second WRX title with victory in Austin
  • Rallycross record holder Kristoffersson: nine wins from ten races so far this season
  • Volkswagen Polo R Supercar remains the dominant force in WRX

He has done it again! Johan Kristoffersson (S) has claimed his second title in the FIA World Rallycross Championship at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin (USA). The defending champion was victorious in his Volkswagen Polo R Supercar at the tenth of this season’s twelve rounds, just in front of his team-mate Petter Solberg (N), and now has 281 points to his name. With a lead of 77 points over second-placed Mattias Ekström (S), and a maximum 60 points up for grabs at the remaining two events, the driver of the Team PSRX Volkswagen Sweden can no longer be caught at the top of the overall standings.
