WHAT NEXT FOR SOL­BERG?

Motor Sport News - - Headline News -

Dou­ble World Rallycross cham­pion Pet­ter Sol­berg is plan­ning to race in the cham­pi­onship next sea­son in a bid to re­take the ti­tle, but won’t cam­paign his ti­tle-win­ning Citroen DS 3 Su­per­car.

“We are work­ing on a few op­tions. We have an­other meet­ing next week, and again the week after. We’re work­ing on a lot of dif­fer­ent things and we will see what will hap­pen,” said Sol­berg.

The 2003 World Rally cham­pion has been open about his de­sire to at­tract man­u­fac­turer sup­port to his pri­vate out­fit since win­ning his first World RX crown in 2014.

He added: “The plan is to stay in rallycross. We have had a cou­ple of op­tions to drive for other teams, but I want to run it my­self. We have to find the right car and a man­u­fac­turer.”

Sol­berg says there is more pace to be found from his cur­rent car but re­gard­less of what sup­port, he will switch to a dif­fer­ent chas­sis. “There’s more to come from my car, you just need more test­ing,” he ex­plained. “But, I will not drive it next year any­way. That’s for sure.”
