In South Africa, the Rallycross World Championship was played until the last minute. At the end of a turbulent race won by Niclas Grönholm, it is ultimately Timmy Hansen driving his Peugeot 208 powered by an engine developed by ORECA that tears the coronation Drivers to Andreas Bakkerud, on equal points.
Timmy Hansen wins the number of victories over the season (4 for Hansen against 1 for Bakkerud)! Thanks to their engines designed by the ORECA Magny-Cours teams, the Hansen brothers offer the first world title to their Team Hansen MJP with 410 points collected throughout the season!
“We are proud of ORECA Magny-Cours to be a loyal Team Partner of Team Hansen MJP since the 2000s. After helping Kenneth and Susann win so many Rallycross European Championship titles in the past, we are even more pleased to allow the new generation of Hansen to win in WRX, and this double title, driver for Timmy and Team for Team Hansen MJP is the consecration of their passion and dedication to this discipline. This is all the more true as they fought to be present in 2019 and had a season with a lot of emotions at all levels (sports, technical, human …) and until the last minute. Congratulations to them!“, Serge Meyer – Director of ORECA Magny-Cours
