Simon Olofsson won the 5th round of RallyX Championship which was organised in Knutstorp, Sweden last weekend. With this result, Olofsson climbed up to 2nd position overall at the championship standings. He scored the perfect points of 30 after winning the heats, semi final and final race. Joachim Hvaal from JC Raceteknik finished 2nd and title contender Tobias Brink completed the podium with his 3rd place success.

Championship leader Thomas Bryntesson could place himself at the 6th position after having troubles: “Exiting the joker lap, I came out side-by-side with another driver. Unfortunately I got a black flag after the race because the judges felt that I was in the wrong for the move. It really feels sad to be honest. We had some problems on the first day, but the team worked really hard overnight and it worked like clockwork in the semi-finals. Knutstorp is a fun track and in the semi-final we were flying. For JC Raceteknik to have all of its drivers in the final was great.”
Despite the result, young Norwegian is still leading the series and going to Lördagen, Norway for the final race to defend his lead and get the crown. Next round will be organised on October 8.
