SuperCarLites-2019-RallyX-RD1-2-Postevent-02

The Supercar Lites class was very much a Norwegian benefit at Höljes, with Thomas Holmen winning on Saturday – in his first competitive outing in more than a year-and-a-half – and Sondre Evjen upholding honours on Sunday.

Holmen’s triumph was an emotional one, the teenager topping the intermediate standings, staving off team-mate Simon Olofsson in the semi-final and surviving first corner contact with Evjen and Ben-Philip Gundersen in the final to go on to seal a tremendously popular success ahead of Olofsson and Evjen.

Twenty-four hours later, it was Evjen’s turn to shine, as the JC Raceteknik ace – who is dovetailing his RallyX Nordic Supercar Lites title tilt with a Supercar drive in the FIA European Rallycross Championship this year – led home team-mate Gundersen and local hero Linus Östlund, whose Saturday charge had been undone by gear linkage issues.
