In addition to the title win in DTM, Audi driver Mattias Ekström is pursuing another aim this year. The Swede would like to become champion in the FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX) with his private rallycross team EKS. “My focus this year is clearly on the DTM title with Audi, but I’m very happy that I’m additionally able to compete in World RX as a driver and as the team boss,” says Ekström. The 36-year-old will personally be taking the wheel of an Audi S1 EKS RX quattro in selected races. The second EKS rallycross supercar is driven by Ekström’s compatriot Anton Marklund, who is on the grid of the new Audi Sport TT Cup as well.
