Podium for Pontus Tidemand

Swede narrowly misses victory in the Beetle

The Swede Pontus Tidemand narrowly missed out on his first victory of the season in the third round of the FIA European Rallycross Championship (EURRX) in Höljes (S). The 28-year-old in the Volkswagen Beetle finished in a strong second place at his home race on the first day, narrowly losing out to compatriot Robin Larsson (S, Audi). It was the first podium for Tidemand in his third attempt in 2019, and he now occupies fourth in the overall standings. At the next event, the fourth of six rounds of the season, he will be looking to build on this strong result – on 17/18 August on the Estering in Buxtehude (D).
