- 2013: 4 starts, best finish 4th, 26 points, 16th overall (Supercars)
In only four races with Red Bull Global Rallycross in 2013, Anton Marklund established himself as a talented up-and-comer, a dark horse threat for strong results and even podium finishes whenever his family-owned operation showed up. In fact, before the red flag flew at X Games Brazil, Marklund was in position to earn a silver medal in his series debut.
In four starts, the driver of the #92 Volkswagen Polo made it to the main event in each of his first two starts and earned finishes of sixth and fourth. However, incidents in both the second Munich race and Los Angeles prevented him from earning more than 26 points in his limited schedule.
This year, Marklund will race at only X Games Austin, with defending Red Bull GRC champion Toomas Heikkinen replacing a revolving door of motorsport stars in the team’s other car. With a brand new build on the Polo, expect Marklund to contend for even better finishes in his lone Red Bull GRC start of the 2014 season.
