Ramona Karlsson to make motorsport comeback in TitansRX

Ramona Karlsson will join the TitansRX field for its penultimate race weekend at the Nyirad Motorsport Centrum in Hungary.

The Swede has experience in the Production World Rally Championship and has been a winner in the Swedish Rally Championship. She has also raced in European Rallycross, and became the first female competitor in the World Rallycross Championship in 2014 when she made a semi-final appearance on her series debut in Montalegre, Portugal.

Karlsson’s first starts in TitansRX will also mark her return to competition following a lengthy layoff for maternity leave.

“I’m really looking forward to being back behind the wheel again, it’s been two years since I competed,” she said. “For sure I expect to be a bit ‘rusty’ because of this, but I hope to come into the game as quickly as possible.”

“I will for sure enjoy this and I’m very happy for this opportunity, I have really longed to stand on the starting line. Making the semi-finals is my first goal, and then we’ll take it from there. I’ve followed the TitansRX and think it’s a very interesting series, I can’t wait to join!”

Karlsson will be one of three female drivers in a star-studded field for TitansRX’s first visit to Hungary, joining series regular Tamara Molinaro and Abbie Eaton who will be returning for her third event.

„I do not have official statistics to prove it but TitansRX Europe in Nyirad will most likely be the first Rallycross race worldwide to feature three female drivers,” said series boss Max Pucher. “Swedish rallycross ace Ramona Karlsson will be joining our grid and try to put her rallycross experience to use against not only the female competitors but also our alpha-male road racing folks.”

“I really enjoy that we are this motorsport family that is able to simply enjoy the sport and make the spectators happy. You most certainly should not miss it.“
