The official presentation of the teams took place at a press conference held in Stockholm on March 16. This event was attended by representatives of over 50 media outlets.

Both teams will compete in Volkswagen Polo RX Supercar

Rally- cross at the moment is the most dynamically developing type of motorsport.

Both we and our dealers are confident that we need to support the two best Swedish teams as they strive to become world rallycross champions. Marklund Motorsport and Kristofferson Motorsport are two very professional private teams that develop the Volkswagen Polo RX Supercar independently. The 2021 calendar promises a very exciting season in the WRXC, and we are confident that Volkswagen drivers will be able to compete for victory in the races and in the championship as a whole.
