Petter Solberg and Teng Tools are ready for the challenges in Hell!

This weekend the very first Norwegian round of the World Rallycross Championship takes place, and Petter Solberg and his team are looking forward to an exciting race on home ground. The fact that the race takes place in Hell may sound a bit deterrent in English, but Petter himself describes the small town just outside of Trondheim as a piece of heaven on earth. His love for his home country, with its deep fjords and towering mountains, is unmistakable – as is his excitement to be competing on Lånkebanan - a track that fits him like a glove!

Lånkebanan in Hell is one of the coolest and most fun tracks in rallycross and it is also one of Petter's favourites in the Championship. The terrain, the difficult turns, the high speed and the jump over the finish line are all ingredients that he really likes. But those charachteristics are also quite demanding of the car, which in turn calls for high quality tools and routines that allow the mechanics to work both efficiently and precisely. 

Petter is very pleased with how strong and dependable his car has been so far during the season, and the team has continued to work on it to make sure it’s in perfect condition when Petter fights for victory in the third round of the World Championship.

The feeling when he won in Portugal a month ago was almost indescribable, and to Petter and the team it was very rewarding when all the underlying work gave such a great return. Now he is more than ready for Norway and the expectations are high: A victory at home on Lånkebanan will surpass the triumph in Portugal!

Petter Solberg World Rallycross Team and Teng Tools, who is represented by 100 enthusiastic Norwegians, are ready for the race in Hell!
