Mettet Joker can’t stop Petter podium threat


Mettet Joker can’t stop Petter podium threat

Even a double joker penalty in the semi-final of the 2015 World RX of Belgium could not prevent iON athlete Petter Solberg from taking a podium finish.

After successfully qualifying for the final rounds in the race meeting Solberg jumped the start in the semi-final. As a result he would have to make two trips through the joker section of the track, which would cost him valuable time.  He remained calm and broke the lap record on his way to a second place finish just half a second behind the winner.

Petter was pushing so hard that he lost the iON Camera from the side of his car. Luckily iON Air Pro 3 is super tough and can handle a bit of rough and tumble as you will see in this video.

Starting on the second row of the grid for the final did not prove a problem for Petter, he immediately jumped into second place behind last year’s winner Topi Heikkinen.  He dropped back in the early stages and then mounted an attack around his joker lap.  In the end he couldn’t find a way past Heikkinen and settled for second to extend his championship lead to 22 points.
