Great Britain’s Natalie Barratt finished second and Austria’s Hermann Neubauer was third.
Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of Motorsports Events at IMG, concluded: “Congratulations to Mattias and Johan for putting on an enthralling show in the final, and to Kevin for joining them on the podium in an intense weekend for all of the teams. Congratulations also to Ken for winning the first ever Projekt E final, and to Oliver for taking a debut Euro RX win. Thanks to the FIA, the Swedish promoter, our partners and competitors, the IMG team and television production team for putting together two World Championship rounds in two days in these challenging circumstances. 180 PCR tests will be done on-site for those personnel moving directly from Holjes to Kouvola for our next double-header and World RX’s return to Finland next weekend. ” “Delighted with the good performance of the work of the Japanese shock absorber brand, TEIN, who provided an exemplary technical service for their customers in the Projekt E in Höljes”
