• P-G Andersson to stand in for #rallycross World Champion Mattias Ekström
• EKS aims to recapture second place in the teams’ standings at home round
• Ekström: “DTM has priority”

Neuburg, June 27, 2017 – Höljes will be hosting round seven of the FIA World #rallycross Championship this weekend. The event in the Swedish province of Värmland is both the home round for EKS and a big motorsport party. The organizers expect some 45,000 spectators to turn out for the “Magic Weekend” from June 30 to July 2. One of the protagonists, though, will be missing: Mattias Ekström. The Swedish #audi factory driver passes up his home round in favor of the #dtm round at the Norisring. His compatriot P-G Andersson will stand in for him. “In Höljes, I won in 2014 and 2015. It goes without saying that I’d have liked to clinch my third big trophy there,” says the reigning #rallycross World Champion. “But the #dtm has priority and, regrettably, I can’t split myself in half. Fortunately, my boss, #dietergass, made the decision for me.”
