    No it has to do with the HANS device. Collarbone injuries in combination with HANS device happens more often than you think.

    Yeah, it's the HANS that did him in. It's been known to happen, especially on side impacts. First corner was slippery and the little nudge from Loeb to Petters rear was enough to get him to slide off. When he reentered Baumanis had nowhere else to go and no time to stop. That was a pretty hard impact.

    Creds to the track personell that stopped the heat and got an ambulance out in under a minute. Also creds to Baumanis engineers that luckily were able to get his car ready for the restart.

    Congratulations to Johan, it's well deserved. He's fast, with great support from the best team in the paddock, and he doesn't make mistakes, kind of like Loeb back in WRC. Also constantly faster than his teammate even though the hardware is identical, again like Loeb in WRC.

    The biggest congratulations go to Petter for assembling and running a team that has pushed the level several clicks higher, while keeping reliability good. It's a great achievement, too bad he had to get the gold while in an ambulance..

    On the contrary, it is very common in motorcycle sports, particular in speedway.

    Well done Johan!

    Yes, that car is epic, but check out his driving style to maximise it. So neat. Thoroughly got the legs in Solberg, as predicted, as the season progressed. Hats off.

    Yeah but I don't associate either of those with motorsport
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Johan raced the STCC this year too.. He raced 4 of the 7 events (3 races each event) - so 12 races in STCC 2017
    He won 6 and scored P2 in other 3 races. P4 overall in the championship.. even with "9" races less than the others. (oh, he won that championship in 2012)
    Great talented driver. P3 in WorldRX 2015, P2 last year and now hes the champ.

    Hope Petter a good and fast recovery =/
    Will his son take over the Polo for the Estering round?

    Petter: First a racing incident with Löeb, kiss on the rear. Slide, trying to correct, one arm in the air, impact with Baumanis while arm up.
    Result, broken collarbone and two cracked ribs. Some reports says he will need an operation to get the collarbone in place again

    Wish you a speedy recovery Petter, and congratulation on achieving your 2017 pri 1, team championship!
