REINIS NITIŠS RETURNS TO THE SUPERCAR CLASS, WILL COMPETE IN WORLD RX OF SWEDEN
Two weeks from now, we will once again see Reinis Nitišs at the wheel of the GRX prepared Hyundai i20 Supercar. On July 6 and 7, the Jēkabpils native will take part in round six of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, which takes place in Sweden’s legendary Holjes circuit.
“The fact I might be competing in the Magic Weekend had been swirling around for some time now, but only recently it was actually confirmed by the team. Both Niclas and Timur have demonstrated the potential of GRX cars, which increases the expectations on my results as well. It has to be mentioned that the Swedish track is very specific, so my primary task will be to help my teammates, so that we find the optimal setup asap,” begins GRX development driver Reinis Nitišs.
“I have not had much luck in Holjes in the past. It is very demanding of both the car and the driver – you have to work very hard to get a good result. I vividly remember last year’s event, when I managed to get the victory by literally fighting till the very last millimetre. I will do everything possible to make sure that GRX takes all three spots on the podium on Sunday,” he concludes.
“I am happy to see Reinis back in the car. The conclusion to the Abu Dhabi event was quite unlucky, but he demonstrated great pace up until then. Holjes is the most exciting event of the year and we expect that Reinis will not be the only addition to the regular driver roster. The race will be a challenge to both himself and the team, and we definitely need his knowledge and the additional data from the track, which will help improve the result of all our cars,” says GRX team manager Jussi Pinomaki.
