KNE owner Guy Wilks is aiming for a place in the final this weekend as the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship heads to Montalagre in Portugal.
The only permanent British driver in the series, Wilks heads to the Bompiso World RX of Portugal lying seventh in the championship following a strong opening round in Barcelona earlier this month
At the wheel of his LOCO Energy Drink and Karting North East-backed Volkswagen RX Polo, Durham-based Wilks narrowly missed out on a spot in the final after beating off a number of factory efforts as he stormed through the four qualifying sessions all the way to the semi-final in Spain.
But as he heads to the 1.52km Portuguese track this weekend, the double British Rally Champion and former WRC driver is hoping to go one better and secure himself a spot among the top six cars in the prestigious final.
This weekend he will battle against 22 of the best drivers from across the world, including a handful of local wild cards, and admits it will be a tough fight but is confident he can go all of the way.
Live coverage of the event will be shown at Karting North East from 3pm, Sunday 23rd April
