Andreas Bakkerud Q&A

We caught up with Bakkerud to find out how he’s feeling ahead of his Andros debut

2016-08-07_63556This weekend, Norway’s Andreas Bakkerud will switch from racing an FIA World Rallycross Championship Supercar to join DA Racing in the Andros Trophy ice racing series. He will drive a Renault Captur as team mate to Jean Baptiste-Dubourg.

Q: What are your expectations ahead of making your Andros Trophy debut his weekend?

AB: “They’re not very high on results, but on the fun scale they are BIG! I also hope to learn something to become a better driver for sure.”

Q: You’re used to snow and ice in Norway, and you used to earn money to go racing by driving a snow plow, how much will your experience help this weekend?

AB: “Haha, yes – I have been playing around a lot in the snow with my old snow plow, so maybe that gives me an advantage. I think the key is to be careful with the grip but also be fully committed in some areas and go totally sideways!”

Q: World RX Supercars are known for being sideways, but Andros Trophy cars take that to a whole new level, how do you think that will be?

AB: “Totally awesome for sure! I have been watching the series several times online and it looks like a tonne of fun to drive. I’m super-happy to have the chance to go there and do it no.!”
