- Former Danish and Nordic karting champion targeting RallyX Nordic debut
- Dall Racing ace has purchased ex-Walfridson Renault Clio Supercar
- 22-year-old confident of quickly adapting to turbo power and four wheel-drive
Magnus Dall is aiming to join RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires’ headlining Supercar class next year after purchasing an ex-Walfridson Renault Clio, with the Dane describing the move as ‘a dream come true’.
A former karter, Dall most recently contested the NEZ North European Championship’s Super1600 rallycross category in a Dall Racing Renault Clio Super1600, although his 2020 competition plans were scuppered by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, the 22-year-old is fully focussed on a return to the track in 2021, as he steps up to Supercar level and trades 2WD for 4WD. Whilst he acknowledges that he inevitably faces a learning curve, he is confident that the experience of the team – with his father Kim having first competed in rallycross back in 1993 – will enable him to rapidly adjust and bring himself up-to-speed.
“It has been a big dream of mine to race in rallycross’ Supercar class, and now that dream is finally coming true,” Dall enthused. “After winning both the Danish and Nordic championships in karting and achieving a lot of good results in RX Super1600, with wins and many podiums in national and international events, I truly feel prepared and ready for the challenges in Supercar.
“With a lot of support from our sponsors, we got the opportunity to buy a Supercar and we are now looking forward to the 2021 season. It’s a big transition to go from a 200bhp FWD car to a turbocharged, 600bhp 4WD beast, but the intention is to get as many kilometres in the car as possible to quickly make myself comfortable with how it needs to be driven. I hope that we can soon adapt to the set-up and the increase in horsepower to be able to continue competing at the top.
“The aim is to contest some of the RallyX Nordic events next year, but it all depends on COVID-19. I’m ready, the team is ready and the car is ready, so if the world allows it, we will race.”
