Ulrik Linnemann has confirmed he will participate in a full season of RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires, becoming the latest high-profile driver to commit to the Supercar class.
The Dane made a spectacular RallyX Nordic debut in 2018 after causing a major upset by beating the series regulars to claim victory on home soil in Nysum at the wheel of his Volkswagen Polo.
He returned at the season finale in Tierp, this time at the wheel of an Olsbergs MSE-prepared Honda Civic, and immediately proceeded to post impressive times. Following a winter of development alongside the leading Swedish team, Linnemann has now opted to use the car for a full RallyX Nordic title tilt.
“I am happy to announce my entry of a full season in RallyX Nordic,” he revealed. “I will be driving with Olsbergs MSE in this beast of a Honda Civic.”
“It will be really great to be a part of the Olsbergs MSE team. They can give me the optimal opportunities for success. I am more fit for fight than ever before, and can´t wait till the season start in May.”
As well as his superb RallyX Nordic showing, Linnemann enjoyed a successful first season of Supercar competition in the European Rallycross Championship, classified sixth overall, while he is a former European S1600 runner-up.
