  • Appearance in Audi S1 EKS RX quattro at action sports event in the United States
  • New rallycross competition with spectacular jumps

Audi rallycross driver Mattias Ekström will take part in the Nitro World Games (September 22–23) in Salt Lake City for the first time. He will compete in the new rallycross event in an Audi S1 EKS RX quattro. Ekström will meet with top-class drivers from the rallycross series and popular U.S. action sports stars. The action sports event featuring freestyle motocross, BMX and inline skating, skateboarding and scootering that is popular in the United States fascinates a large number of spectators.

The third running of the Nitro World Games is the first to include a rallycross competition. On the track built for the event at Utah Motorsports Campus some 50 kilometers west of Salt Lake City, Ekström will be pitted against rallycross drivers like Timmy Hansen from the World RX, but U.S. action sports stars such as Travis Pastrana and Ken Block, and U.S. Rallycross Champion Scott Speed are, like Ekström, aiming to claim the winners’ trophy as well.
