JOHAN KRISTOFFERSSON WON THE LATVIA RX, AND HE IS THE 2017 WORLD RALLYCROSS CHAMPION AS WELL! The Swede is doing an amazing job since round 2 in Portugal, as he finished every event on the podium since then. From the weekend in Hell, Norway, he is in an unbelievable and unstoppable form, and by winning the Latvia RX, he crossed the line first for the fifth consecutive time, which is of course an absolute record! Very well done to Johan and PSRX Volkswagen Sweden team, as they also secured the Constructors' Championship! After Mattias Ekström became Sweden's first FIA World Rallycross Champion last year, again there is a Swedish guy on the top of rallycross. In our Post-RX photo gallery we show you the best photos from the Latvia RX, and from the captions you can read the report. Kristoffersson P1, Ekström P2, Loeb P3. The Monster Energy Supercharge Award was won by Mattias Ekström this time. Due to an unfortunate accident in Semi-Final 2, the team boss of the Constructors' Champion PSRX team, Petter Solberg suffered a broken collarbone. In the name of the whole Drivetribe community we wish him a speedy recovery!
