A victory for Mattias Ekström at the Estering ahead of Peugeot driver Timmy Hansen and EKS-teammate Toomas Heikkinen. Petter Solberg made an unbelievably quick return from his severe injury and despite the championship is decided (title already won by Johan Kristoffersson) at the last round there will be an incredible battle for 2nd place between Solberg and Ekström. Can't wait for the last round in Cape Town, South Africa!

  • Cannot actually believe Solberg got back in the car as soon as he did with a broken clavicle. Absolute machine!
