Former World Rally Champion, Petter Solberg (Citroen) took a sensational lights-to-flag victory in Trois-Rivieres to become the first driver to win a round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship held outside of Europe.

Volkswagen Marklund Motorsport’s Anton Marklund and Team Peugeot-Hansen’s Timur Timerzyanov finished second and third respectively, both drivers securing podium spots for the first time this season.

Arguably one of the most impressive drives of the event was that of Canadian Patrick Carpentier who made his RX debut in the event, reaching the final in his VW Polo.

His fellow countryman Jacques Villeneuve was less fortunate. A heavy landing wreaked havoc with the fuel tank on his Peugeot 208 Supercar and forced the French-Canadian to retire.

Here are out Top 10 photos of the spectacular event.
