In a 2016 season, EKS, with a Audi S1 EKS RX quattro, won both a drivers’ and a teams’ universe championships opposite clever foe from Ford, Peugeot, Volkswagen and countless highwayman teams. “We comprehend that it’s going to be increasingly formidable for EKS to reason a possess opposite a bureau teams, so we chose to feature a World RX commitment,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass.
Mattias Ekström feels that his loyalty has valid him right: “We laid a lot of grounds as a group in a initial 3 years, collected critical practice and set new standards with EKS.
