Larsson bidding to go big on RallyX Nordic return

Robin Larsson says he is excited about the prospect of reuniting with his Audi A1 for the first time in more than a year as he prepares to make his RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires return at the Tierp Arena.

Having spent the 2018 season competing in the World Rallycross Championship driving the Olsbergs MSE Ford Fiesta, Larsson will now get behind the wheel of the car he took to podium success at Solvalla last season.

With the Audi affectionately known as ‘Diana’, Larsson is tempering his expectations until he gets a chance to drive the car again in anger today.

“I drove it last time in Riga (2017 European RX) so it has been more than a year. We will see how we get on. I haven’t even given it a shakedown yet. It took a lot of change to go to the Fiesta for 2018 but hopefully I know this car well so hopefully it won’t be tough.”

“I want to get to the final but it is hard to say if we’ll be as quick as last year. If everything feels good then I will aim for the victory or the podium.”

Turning his attentions to the new Tierp Arena track, Larsson says he is interested to tackle the gravel sections in particular.

“It looks fun! We will see how the gravel is after a few cars have been over it, but it has a really tight joker too. “I think that is the main point to have a good exit out of there and a good rhythm on the gravel.”
