Description Finnish driver Niclas Gronholm withstood enormous pressure in wet conditions to win his home round of the World Rallycross Championship at Kouvola, becoming the third different winner this season.
Gronholm defended his lead intently from Kristoffersson and row-two starter Mattias Ekstrom's Audi S1, the leading three cars attached bumper-to-bumper into the downhill hairpin on each lap.
Ekstrom finished second, overtaking Kristoffersson in the last corner. For the first time in 2020 though, Kristoffersson didn’t finish on the podium, he was also overtaken by Gronholm’s GRX team mate, Russia’s Timur Timerzyanov, in a race to the finish line.
Sweden’s Timmy Hansen finished fifth after taking his joker on lap one and Monster Energy GCK RX Cartel’s Andreas Bakkerud completed the list of final finishers.
