RESULTS IN THE EUROPEAN RALLYCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP ----------------------------------------------- Kenneth Hansen secured his championship-title by winning this event. The final in div.II was the hardest ever seen with several changes in the lead. Martin Schanche had pole position but Kenneth Hansen took the start and lead through the first corner. Then Schanche pushed Hansens car and took the lead. Stig Blomqvist and Will Gollop almost passed Hansen but he kept his place and attacked Schanche hard. Schanche got a puncture and Hansen won the race. Both drivers said afterwards that they deserved to be disqualified! In div.I Richard Hutton took 2:nd place and is favorite for the title. Eivind Opland's protest against Hutton's hard driving resulted in economical punishment, but Hutton didn't loose any points.

The last event of the championship is in Germany on Oktober 2.
