About Anders

A relative latecomer to co-driving, Anders started his career in his native Norway alongside Bernt Kollevold in the 2014 Norwegian Rally Championship. He quickly proved himself to compete during the remainder of 2014 and 2015 with another fellow Norwegian, Ole Christian Veiby, and the Junior WRC and European Rally Championship were added to their programme. Together, they scored five podiums in the 2015 Junior WRC and took the championship runner-up spot. When the opportunity came to join his long-time friend Andreas in a WRC car in 2016, he was ready. Taking two wins in their debut season, the duo then embarked on a three-rally program with our team in late 2017. Making an auspicious start, our Norwegian crew led on their debut in Spain, and will be looking to establish themselves as favourites throughout 2018. Away from the stages, just like his teammate, Anders enjoys plenty of sports, cycling and skiing.
