Enzo Ide joins RallyX Nordic with EKS JC
Belgian racing driver Enzo Ide will continue his rallycross endeavor with a full RallyX Nordic season under the flag of the newly formed EKS JC team.
Enzo Ide has a successful circuit racing background with a Champion’s title in Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup and several podium finishes in various GT endurance races. In 2018 Ide made a switch to rallycross and since has competed in selected FIA World RX, RallyX Nordic and British Rallycross Championship rounds. He finished the 2020 season with a double 2nd place in British Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill and also qualified for Semi-finals at two FIA World RX races.
Now Ide has committed to a full RallyX Nordic championship season of 2021 with EKS JC, in the EKS built Audi S1 EKS RX quattro Supercar. Championship will consist of four races, starting on 1st and 2nd of May at Nysum (Denmark), that will be followed by rounds at Höljes (Sweden), OuluZone (Finland) and Arvika (Sweden).
“We look forward to an exciting year with Enzo. He ended the last season on a high note with a double podium at Lydden Hill and we hope he can carry over this speed to this season as well,” says Joel Christoffersson, EKS JC Team Manager. “We will start our preparation with pre-season test sessions, to be fully ready for the race in Denmark. The main goal for Enzo at RallyX Nordic will be to show a consistent and growing pace. If he can continue from where we left last year in Lydden, he will have no problems fighting for the Final and podiums in every race.”
“I am really happy to commit to a full RallyX Nordic season this year. Last year at Höljes I had good fun, but it was also quite tough. At the time I had very little time in the car and I was not fully ready. It will be different this year, as I have had a chance to adapt to the car and it suits me very well. I feel really excited to get back in the rallycross car, and enjoy RallyX Nordic, which features very nice race tracks and has good competition,” comments Enzo Ide. “I am pleased that I can continue to drive the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro with the EKS JC team. It is important for me to have a good atmosphere in the team, like we always have. It makes me feel comfortable and it helps to improve my result on track, while we still have a good fun in the paddock."
