The Teng Tools supported World Rally Cross Super Cars are back in action again this weekend at Loheac in Brittany in Northern France. With our two drivers top of the championship table Petter Solberg and Johan Kristofferson really are the super stars of the 2017 FIA World rally cross Championship. Both drivers have won here before and they will be looking for yet another victory to extend their domination over the other teams and drivers. They really are super star drivers in their WRX super cars.
There will be 70,000 people track side plus worldwide television and on line coverage but the best view will be for a few lucky people who will be able to watch, together with the team managers, from the Teng Tools spotter tower and that will include a group of Teng Tools customers from France and Jersey. Should be quite an atmosphere with some spectacular racing.
The two VW Polo drivers will no doubt be the stars of the show but Teng Tools also supports teams and drivers in the European Rally cross Championship who will also be racing at Loheac this weekend.
Derek Tohill from Ireland is a past European rally cross champion and has already won three out of three Irish Rally Cross events this year in his Teng Tools supported Ford; he will be looking to improve on his current ninth place in the standings. A talented driver who will give his all and should be one of the top drivers this weekend.
Teng Tools supported Albatec Racing from Scotland are also competing in the European Rally Cross support races at Loheac with their Peugeots and have three drivers racing, Phillipe Maloigne from France is first reserve for the Super Car races while Jere Kalliokoski (GB) and Tommy Rustad (Norway) will compete in the European Rally Cross – Tommy is currently third in the championship and highly competitive.
So with six drivers racing with Teng Tools support it will be a busy weekend for the Teng Tools customers who are lucky enough to be there. Add in all the trackside advertising that comes from being the official tool supplier to the FIA WRX series and you can see that Teng Tools will be loud and proud at Loheac this weekend.
Qualifying is on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with the semi finals and the finals being on Sunday afternoon. That is this weekend on 2nd and 3rd September 2017.
