"You’ll never be number one if you follow in the footsteps of others."

Go Hard Or Go Home

Besides motorsport, I am a family guy. At least ever since my girlfriend Heidi gave birth to our children Mats and Hanna, my priorities changed. I love to spend time with my family and our other two long-standing members, Jack Russell Terriers Lou and Moss. I am also close to my mother Agneta and my father Bengt. They have always supported my career and watched most of my DTM races live at the race track.

I don’t do things half-heartedly. Not in my private life and also not in racing. “Go hard or go home” - this slogan has been with me my entire life. I live motorsport and I love motorsport. A passion that I was born into. My father Bengt was a race driver in the European Rallycross Championship during the 1980s and 1990s.

When I drove in the DTM for the very first time in 2001, we were racing with touring cars. Over the years they became real sports cars, which are increasingly pushed to the limits of the regulations, and also provide a lot of fun. Fun also brings success: I am the most successful Audi DTM driver in history – I became champion twice, and was runner-up three times. But the journey is not over yet.
Having my own rallycross team was a long-time dream. With EKS this dream came true. Since 2014, we have been part of the FIA World Rallycross Championship. The team is a celebration of everything that I love about racing: the passion, enthusiasm and joy. And, of course, professionalism and preparation. I have brought together great professionals and long-time friends who love the challenge and understand what it takes to win.
