Linnemann Targets Podium in Nysum Wild-Card Outing

Denmark’s leading rallycross racer Ulrik Linnemann says he is eyeing the podium when he makes his RallyX Nordic debut on home soil in Nysum.

Linnemann will make a popular appearance on home soil when he lines up in his Volkswagen Polo Supercar at Nysum, the Dane looking for another strong result following a number of eye-catching performances in the FIA European Rallycross Championship.

A two-time finalist in Euro RX this season, where he competes alongside RallyX Nordic front runners Peter Hedstrom and Thomas Bryntesson, Linnemann currently sits fifth in the overall standings with two rounds remaining.

Looking forward to getting out in front of his Danish fans, Linnemann is setting his sights high come race day.

“I’m very pleased to drive this RallyX Nordic event on my own home circuit in Nysum,” he said. “I also look forward to introducing the VW Polo 6R RX Supercar to my many faithful fans in Denmark.

“In 2018, joined the European Rallycross Championship for Supercars. The battle for the finals in Euro RX is very close and tough, but it is especially spectacular for the spectators as we fight for glory.”

“In Euro RX I am competing with Thomas Bryntesson and Peter Hedström, and I have already found good speed in my rookie season. My goal for RallyX Nordic at Nysum is the final and maybe the podium.”
