Andersson takes Spirit of the Rally award

PG Andersson wins the Abu Dhabi Spirit of the Rally award following SWRC success in Sweden
PG Andersson has been given the Abu Dhabi Spirit of the Rally award in recognition of his SWRC winning performance on Rally Sweden.

Andersson dominated the Super 2000 battle at the wheel of his Skoda Fabia to lead throughout and secured a top ten overall finish as well as S2000 honours.

"PG and his fan base demonstrated that nothing can substitute home support and local knowledge,” Ahmed Hussein, deputy director general of the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, said. “The young Swede excelled on his familiar terrain, taking full advantage of his Scandinavian heritage and respectfully rewarding his dedicated fans with a triumph.

"It is up-and-coming talent and ability such as this that we wish to recognise and to urge our own budding sportsmen to emulate."

Andersson, a two-time winner of the JWRC crown, was delighted to pick up the award.

"It's a great feeling to be appreciated for what you are doing, it's a special emotion," he said. "The number of supporters has been much better than I expected. With no Swedish drivers in WRC and me leading the S-WRC, for sure they are supporting me and making a difference to how I drive."
