KALLIOKOSKI RETURNS TO EURO RX SUPERCAR

Thursday 19th of March 2020

Finland’s Jere Kalliokoski will return to the FIA European Rallycross Championship in 2020 with a Ford Fiesta Supercar.

Kalliokoski made selected FIA World Rallycross Championship appearances last season with Team STARD, along with finishing third overall in RallyX Nordic and the Finnish Rallycross Championships with his own team.

The Finn has previously raced in two seasons of Euro RX Supercar, with Albatec Racing in a Peugeot 208 and then G-Fors with a Renault Clio, in 2017 and 2018 when he finished P13 and P11 in the points.

"I got valuable experience from those European teams for the future; now I know what to expect from the events this year. Last season was quite intense with lots of races. The bronze medals don't exactly satisfy me, it could have gone better,” Kallokoski said.“This season we will start with the same team we had last season. We work well together and the car has been prepared carefully. There will be plenty of drivers and friends from RallyX Nordic in Euro RX this year, I will fight hard in every event and at every race start.”

Kalliokoski says his favourite circuit on the calendar is Hell in Norway. "Only the Belgian track is new for me, I have already driven at least a bit at the other ones. My own favourite is Hell in Norway because it's fast, there is a great variation in altitude and the scenery is amazing. Our goal is to have trouble-free events and to reach the podium at some point during the season. Whenever I drive onto the track, I drive to win,” he concluded.
