Rallycross driver Nikita Misyulya 3rd place in the WORLD RALLY CROSS RX in Norway
Hell/Norway. Nikita Misyulya (24) at the top of his game drives in the FIA World Rally Championship Cross presented by Monster Energy. The Russian Rallycross driver is after round three in the FIA European Championship Hell/Norway ranked 3rd.
The qualification last Saturday in Hell / Norway was perfect for Nikita Misyulya and he was on a winning streak at the World RX final. The final day was a sensational. In front of a crowd of 13,000 last weekends Misyulya drove a head to head race with his two teammates who are also from Volland Racing. And at first, everything went fine in the first two heats. In the 3th heat he was again swift as an arrow, back in the lead and could only be stopped by a driving mistake - a driving mistake was caused by Salikov after his teammate on the Joker Lap. This cost him more than 10 seconds.
Salikov drove into the rear of Misyulya´ s car and it turned 180 degrees. Misyulya lost precious time and could not secure the desired place in this round. His coach Rolf Volland announced in an interview: "It was a dramatic chain of events that day. The Joker Lap in the fourth race was Nikitas undoing. Nikita would have certainly secured second place. "
And yet it was clear at the end of the race: All race times of the day were enough for him to keep his 3rd place in the overall rankings of the FIA World Rally Championship Cross presented by Monster Energy.
Nikita Misyulya represents a new generation of racers: Young, successful and extremely determined.
Nobody can believe, but he started to race in 2013 with victory in Lada Granta Cup /14 races in 6 different tracks. And now he is coming to compete each time on the track which he had never seen before. Amazing to see how he progressing one lap to another. In an interview Martin Anayi / IMG Managing Director of the race series, proclaimed: "Nikita is one of the top drivers who will prevail in the sport because he is fearlessly on the track and makes good decisions in critical moments. Most newcomers to the sport need years of training to get to where Nikita is".
