Kevin Eriksson Wins in Sweden!

Eriksson maintains family pride at Swedish rallycross' spiritual home
Kevin Eriksson has won the second round of RallyX on Ice at Höljes in Sweden, after coming out on top of a spellbinding Scandinavian snow fight with Sondre Evjen and round one winner Oliver Eriksson.
It was the younger of the two Erikssons that set the pace throughout the qualifying heats, but come the semi-final stage, older brother and Olsbergs MSE team-mate Kevin stole the initiative to earn himself pole position for the all-important final.
The MJP Racing Team Austria FIA World Rallycross Championship star then saw off a challenge from Östersund runner-up Evjen (JC Raceteknik) to seal victory, with Oliver Eriksson battling back from a difficult first corner to reach the bottom step of the rostrum in third.
“It was a good weekend for me – almost perfect,” reflected the winner. “I only conceded two points through the heats, and I had to beat two younger guys to get here. I really had to give it everything in the final and thankfully it was enough. It certainly wasn’t over right until the chequered flag. This is the first time I’ve actually won a race on ice – I’ve finished second five times – so it’s a good feeling.”
