Looking back with pride.

2016

Magda competed in the FIA ​​European Rallycross Championship for Touring Cars in what proved to be the most successful year of her driving career thus far. Building on a strong performance in last year’s championship when she comfortably exceeded all preseason expectations, eventually coming fourth in the overall competition.

This year her ambition was to be a contender for the overall series crown. Laying down her intent from the outset she won the opening round in Belgium and went on to dominate the podium achieving a class leading four out of a possible five podium finishes. She was crowned Vice Champion of 2016 following one of her characteristically inspired race performances at the final round of the series in Buxtehude conceding the championship title by a mere single point.

Reflecting on what has been the most successful season of her career Magda comments “Once again I have exceeded my own expectations during what was one of the most challenging and exhilarating seasons of my career to date. I am delighted at the outcome and the fact that the entire series was conducted in the very best standards of sporting behavior. I am so grateful to my extraordinary team members and my commercial partners without whom none of this success would have been possible. I also wish to acknowledge and express my gratitude for the phenomenal support of my fans. ”

The final position in the 2016 FIA European Championship for Touring Cars were as follows.

  1. Ben Philip GUNDERSEN (Nor) 107
  2. Magda Andersson (Swe) 106
  3. Fredrik MAGNUSSEN (Nor) 93
