Audi S1 EKS RX quattro #57 (EKS), Toomas Heikkinen
Mattias Ekström’s privateer Team EKS on delivering a strong performance in the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Montalegre (Portugal) secured the lead of the teams’ standings. New signing Toomas Heikkinen from Finland in his first race in the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro instantly scored a podium result, in third place. Mattias Ekström, though, was struck by major misfortune. After the DTM star had been dominating qualifying, he was touched by a rival during the semi-final in turn one and, as a result, missed the opportunity of making it into the finale of the top six. Round two of the World Rallycross Championship will be held as part of the DTM season opener at Hockenheim from May 6 to 8.
