More to come for Solberg

21 May 2013

Petter Solberg insists there is more to come as he heads into his third outing in the FIA European Rallycross Championship in Hungary this weekend.

The former WRC champion made it to the semi-finals during the season-opener in the UK before suffering power-steering failure, while he then broke the Montalegre lap record en-route to the final in Portugal during round two.

Solberg now heads to round three at Nyirad seeking to fight for a first victory at the wheel of his Citroen DS3 Supercar, which was built up in a matter of weeks in the run up to the new campaign.

Work on the car in recent weeks has seen the Petter Solberg RX Team find more horsepower from the car and Solberg said he now hoped to make the most of it when the action gets underway at the weekend.

“First of all we concentrated on trying to get the reliability of the car right, then we wanted to improve the speed,” he said. “We've been working so hard on both of these things and now I think we're really getting somewhere. The main thing is that we've got another 80 horsepower and that's going to make a big, big difference – especially when it comes to getting off the line. I can really feel it.

“All the circuits are new to me so it doesn't make any difference, but I'm looking forward to it all a lot. Wherever we go we've had a lot of support from all the fans and with the latest things that we have on the car it should be a really good weekend. Whatever happens, everyone in our team should be very proud: we have a fantastic car now. And there is even more to come…”
