After their dominant weekend in Spain where the Hansen Brothers finished 1-2 on the podium, the next round brought them to the famous Spa Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium for round 3 of the World Rallycross Championship. Kevin and Timmy Hansen were on a high and hoped to continue their good form at the famous circuit. Bad weather on day 1 made car set up and learning the track more difficult than normal, but eventually they found a setting they thought would work well for both drivers during qualifying. At least there’s no snow this year! Qualifying proved to be difficult for both Kevin and Timmy and as Timmy mentions, they need to go ‘full send’ to improve their position. Timmy finished 10th and Kevin was 11th after the first day. On Sunday, Q3 saw both cars fitted with new slicks due to the perfect dry conditions, but the results didn’t turn out well for Timmy. Kevin’s second place was a great improvement. Qualifier 4 was a much better race for Timmy – he got a fantastic start and led all the way to the chequered flag. We won’t spoil the result for you, watch the vlog to find out how the event turned out for the team in the finals. Join the Hansen family behind the scenes at the Spa World RX Of Benelux.
