2003 WRC Champion Petter Solberg will be driving in the World RX Championship next year.

Despite suffering from lung disease Sarkoidose, the Norweigan won’t hang up his helmet at the end of 2018. His teammate Johan Kristoffersson has won this year’s Drivers’ Championship for the second time in a row.

“Next year I will drive,” he told Motorsport.com. “I have a plan [for the future], hopefully, that goes together with Volkswagen’s plan how we do it.

“We are having good discussions and we need stability for everybody to look at the long term.”

He is currently fighting for second in the points with Peugeot driver Sebastien Loeb and Audi’s Mattias Ekstrom and Andreas Bakkerud.
