Team Hansen is coming off the back of an extraordinary 2019 season, where it won every competition it entered: the World RX drivers’ title with Timmy and the teams’ title, plus Nitro RX and TitansRX titles with Kevin. And while there’s been plenty of time for the team to reflect on that success, that time has also been spent focusing on how to repeat it in 2020 against a line-up that’s even tougher than last year.
Both drivers carry new numbers for this year: as the reigning World Rallycross Champion, Timmy has elected to use #1 on his rear passenger window this year, while Kevin is switching from #71 to #9 in World RX.
This weekend should be a good indication right away of where we stand. If we are fast in Höljes, we can be fast anywhere. I want to continue what we did last year; it was a fantastic season, the best season I have ever had as a racing driver. But I still have more to give, more left in me that I want to give to the sport and I can still become a better rallycross driver. That’s my goal for this year, and hopefully that leads to another world title.Timmy Hansen
To start the season with my home race is very exciting. We’re used to double headers and the team is as well, so this format won’t feel like a surprise. It’ll be very calm with no fans but if we do well in the final, the celebrations will feel a bit empty, with no-one in the grandstands. We feel all the support from our home fans and we hope they will share their feelings and emotions about World RX’s return with us on social media.Kevin Hansen
Ahead of the weekend’s action, the team has also unveiled its 2020 livery, featuring the traditional Hansen Motorsport blue, plus light blue accents for Timmy’s Peugeot 208 WRX and yellow accents for Kevin’s 208 to distingush the team’s two cars.
