GO HARD OR GO HOME

“Go hard or go home” – that is the motto of the long-time Audi factory driver Mattias Ekström. It fits perfectly to the FIA World Rallycross Championship (World RX), wherein Ekström takes part with his own team. It offers more action than any other racing series: The races are short and spectacular and the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro with a power output of 580 hp is potent package.
