Drivers: A. Bakkerud, M. Ekström,

EKS Audi Sport heads into the 2018 World RX season with its sights set firmly on returning to the top step of the podium after seeing a bright start to the 2017 season fade as rivals PSRX Volkswagen Sweden forged clear.

In response, EKS Audi Sport brings a significantly updated Audi S1 to the start-line this season with 2016 World Champion Mattias Ekstrom demonstrating his renewed commitment by retiring from DTM in favour of a fully-focused World RX tilt. He is joined by new signing Andreas Bakkerud, the highest-profile mover over the winter having jumped ship from the departed Hoonigan Racing Division Ford team.
