Johan Kristoffersson

Date of birth: 06/12/1988

Place of birth: Karlstad, Sweden

Home: Arvika, Sweden

Johan Kristoffersson of Sweden was as good as destined to become something of a motorsport talent, as his father Tommy competed in rallycross and in the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC). This is also where Johan garnered his first experience in the junior section in 2008, before moving up to the main STCC category a year later.

 

He was the 2011 championship runner-up in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, and clinched his first titles a year later, winning the STCC, the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and the Superstars International Series in Italy. Johan Kristoffersson’s activities in the 2013 and 2014 seasons included the Swedish Rallycross Championship and he also won the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia again in 2013. In 2015 Kristoffersson competed in two categories: the World Rallycross Championship and the European Rallycross Championship - both for Volkswagen Team Sweden. He finished in third and eighth place respectively. Johan competed in the World Championship only in 2016, claimed one victory and twi podium positions finishing second overall at the end of the season.

Career

Petter Solberg

Date of birth: 18/11/1974

Place of birth: Askim, Norway

Home: Monte Carlo, Monaco

Petter Solberg, a rallying all-rounder. The Norwegian raced in the World Rally Championship between 1998 and 2012, winning the title with Subaru in 2003. Petter finished on the top step of the WRC podium on no fewer than 13 occasions. However, he also knows how to handle himself when it comes to wheel-to-wheel action: he has been driving in the World Rallycross Championship since 2014, and won the championship at the first attempt in a Citroën DS3. He backed up this outstanding effort by successfully defending the title in 2015. 

 

However, Petter is not the only member of his family to be actively involved in rallying. His older brother Henning regularly competes in the World Rally Championship.
