HOW TO PICK THE BEST FANTASY RX TEAM FOR CATALUNYA RX

Wednesday 24th of April 2019

It’s the second round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship is this week, with the World RX of Catalunya-Barcelona and that means it’s also time for Fantasy RX round two.


The drivers to score most Fantasy RX points last time out were Kevin Hansen and Niclas Gronholm, while in Fantasy RX it was Birtygirl who claimed victory and leads the standings. As World RX returns to Europe, after round one in Abu Dhabi, every driver in Pool A has now finished on the podium in World RX, but are you backing Kevin Hansen, Niclas Gronholm or Liam Doran to score the most points over the weekend? Or after failing to finish round one, do you think the two drivers of the current field who have been on the podium most times previously in Barcelona, Andreas Bakkerud or Timmy Hansen, will be the men on form this weekend? Interestingly, Liam Doran was the least picked driver in the whole field for Abu Dhabi, while the most-picked driver by Fantasy RX contestants was Kevin Hansen.


Pool B for Barcelona RX is just as open as Pool A. Janis Baumanis, Krisztian Szabo and Timo Scheider all made the final in round one, with Anton Marklund and Rokas Baciuska not far away either, but it was Baumanis who took the most points of the Pool B options. Don’t forget that Scheider has previous form in Barcelona, he was TQ (top qualifier) in 2017 and finished on the podium in second.


It’s a mix of youth and experience in Pool C and in Pool D, only Oliver Bennett has started a World RX event so far this year. Could Olympic legend Chris Hoy spring a surprise in both the World RX event, driving Xite Racing’s Ford Fiesta, and in the Fantasy RX points. On that note, if you think Hoy will be fast, you could pick him to be the fastest British driver in Q4, in Bonus Question 3.
