Only a 15th place at EC Hungary

A disappointing weekend for Per Eklund. At the third race for the European Championship rallycross 2008 at the Nyráid circuit in Hungary he finished only on a 15th place.

The qualification heats he has a 13th, a 13th and a 8th time overall. This gave him a pole position at the C-final.

In this C-final he had the lead until the last lap, looking for a start in the B-final. But Eklund had to take the jokerlap and took this alternative in the last lap. Homedriver Zoltan Harsányi took the leed, when Eklund just 15 meters before the finish hit the tirewall and could not move the Saab 9-3 to the finish.

With this 15th place he took just 2 points. In the ranking he moves down to the 11th place.
