RallyX Nordic: Fraser McConnell got the better of three-time FIA World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson for his maiden RallyX Nordic presented by Cooper Tires victory at Nysum today (1 May), as the series’ 2021 season got underway in sensational ‘send it’ style.
The international rallycross campaign revved into life with a feast of epic doorhandle-to-doorhandle action in Denmark, featuring hard-fought battles in every class. Extraordinarily, McConnell’s breakthrough triumph was achieved from the back row of the grid – just one of many spectacular stories on a spectacular day…
“Big up – this is unreal!” the 22-year-old enthused. “The quality of these drivers is incredible, but the level of Olsbergs MSE is unbelievable. We never give up, and whilst our pace was up-and-down all day, I gave it everything I had. I’m with the best team in the world, and I’m racing for the best country in the world. Big up everybody!
“I was telling myself on the start-line for the final, even though you’re only in fifth, you can still do this. It’s rallycross – anything can happen. I kept it neat and knew there would be a little drama at the first corner. Like Andreas [Eriksson – OMSE CEO] told me, I had to take advantage of the other guys’ mistakes and that’s exactly what I did. I’m already looking forward to tomorrow, but right now I’m just so made-up!
“I need to FaceTime everybody at home and see what they’re saying, but I’m sure my mum is crying and my dad is ecstatic. The rest of the people in the country have supported me and I’m so proud to represent them and do what I do.
“The support that I get… I can’t tell you how much it means to me, and how far it can take you in the sport. Every sponsor, no matter how small, is worth every penny. I’m trying to make them proud and I hope they will be happy with this result. This is the perfect start to the season!” RallyX Nordic
