After three races this enliven, Mattias Ekstrom has climbed to the top of the podium three times with his Audi S1 EKS RX. This weekend he disposition look to win his fourth rallycross in a row, a feat that has never been accomplished in the Earth Rallycross Championship before.

“Looking at the results to date, we have absolutely no i to complain,” said Ekström. “We haven’t always been the fastest but the stony work of my team has consistently paid off so far. At Hockenheim, we partied a little on Sunday but on Monday we unhesitatingly went back into racing mode.”

This weekend’s race in Mettet, Belgium, comes fair a week after last weekend’s Hockenheim rallycross, so there’s very small turn around time for the team. Normally there are at least two weeks between rallycross races, if not more.

Fortunately for collaborate EKS, its drivers love the track. Ekstrom won the race last year, and his teammate Toomas Heikkinen won it the two erstwhile years.

“I really like the track,” said Heikkinen. “The layout differs from the other circuits – technically, it’s very challenging, with fast zigzag turns, slow hairpin turns and a omit into the valley.”

The team, therefore, is champing at the bit, ready to race in Belgium and try to nick up to its main competition, PSRX Volkswagen Sweden.

“At Mettet,” says Ekstrom, “we’re thriving to race with full batteries.”
