Finnish driver and FIA World Rallycross veteran Toomas Heikkinen has stated that he will not join the 2016 Champions EKS RX for a third season running for the 2018 season.
“After two brilliant years driving the Audi S1 RX quattro in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, it’s time for me to say goodbye to EKS,” he said.
I want to thank the whole team and especially Mattias [Ekström] for everything over the last two years. We’ve had a lot of fun and some amazing moments. I’m really happy that we both finished on the podium in Germany, in one of my last races with the team. I have made a lot of friends in EKS and wish them all the best for the future.
Now it’s onto the next stage. I’m not yet sure what the future will bring, but I will be able to announce more about my future in January.”
