World RX? It’s Petter’s game in inches

Life, according to Al Pacino, is a game in inches.

Here at PSRX, Petter Solberg and the team know what Al’s talking about. We’ve watched Any Given Sunday*, we’ve felt a little of his pain.

The inches we need are everywhere around us. They’re in every break in the game, every minute, every second.

Two rounds ago in Canada, Petter and the PSRX Supercar took a bit of a beating. But the defending champ came back and, in sensational fashion last time out in France, extended the lead at the top of the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

On this team we fight for that inch.

PSRX fought before France and in France and now the fight goes on.

You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes. Now, I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. You are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when it comes down to it, you are gonna do the same thing for him.

That’s the deal at PSRX: the team’s in this one together. Inch by inch.

The chance for triple FIA World Champion Solberg to take another inch comes in Barcelona this weekend.

In an effort to take his mind off fighting and inches, he’s been playing golf.

“Golf’s a good way to relax,” said Solberg. “I hadn’t played since 2012 though, so I was a bit rusty. We were playing with our sponsors near to Stockholm and everything was good: the sun was shining and I was relaxing. But then I got the same competitive urge – I wanted to win again!

“Winning is everything to this team, but what’s the real focus – and I’ll say it again – is winning at the end of the year; the big win, the World Championship win.

“We go to Barcelona in good shape, with more improvements in the car and ready for some more action. I like the track in Barcelona and it’s a really nice place – the fans and the atmosphere is so cool. And we won the first ever World RX of Barcelona there last year, standing on top of the podium on Sunday afternoon would be just perfect for me and my team.”

That’s rallycross guys.

That’s all it is.
