Kristoffersson Motorsports has revealed the car they will use for the 2024 World RX season earlier today. Find out more below. 

Going Back

Kristoffersson Motorsport is the first team to announce the use of an internal combustion engine for the 2024 World RX season. As the Hansen World RX Team will continue to use electric cars. The car was originally revealed back in May for use in the Nordic RX series. However, the team wouldn’t confirm its use in the World RX until today (June 13th). When the car was revealed Tommy Kristoffersson made it sound as if the team would continue the use of the electric Polo. With the team boss saying “The electric cars have not been used since Lyddenn Hill and are now in for an update.” The Volkswagen Polo or as KMS calls it, the KMS 601 RX features a Horse engine. As the team will be referred to as KMS Horse Powertrain for the upcoming season. 

Returning For Another Season 

Kristoffersson Motorsports will retain the same driver lineup that they used last season. This includes Ole Christian Veiby and 6-time World RX Johan Kristoffersson. 

Ole Christian Veiby

The 2024 season will be Veiby’s third full World RX season this year has yet to take home an event win. He has come close three times before, twice in Portugal in 2022 and once in China last season. Being without a win isn’t a bad sign for Veiby. As his teammate has dominated the World RX for the last two seasons, winning 13 of the last 17 World RX rounds. This leaves very little room for other drivers such as Veiby to win a round. The 27-year-old Norwegian got his start in Rallycross back in 2014 in two events with the KMS team. In 2015 he would make two more World RX appearances and contested the full Euro RX season where he finished third in the championship before leaving the Rallycross scene until 2022. While Veiby was absent from Rallycross he took part in the World Rally Championship 2 category. Where Veiby managed to get 11 different podium finishes and two class wins. However, in 2022 Veiby made the move back to Rallycross. 

Johan Kristoffersson

Mentored by 2-time World RX champion and 2003 WRC champion Petter Solberg, Kristoffersson has become an unstoppable force. Much like Sebastien Loeb or Ogier in the WRC. Since 2017 Kristoffersson has won every World RX championship besides 2019 when he did not contest the championship. Since his debut in 2014 Kristoffersson has amassed a large collection of trophies. As the 35-year-old has taken 41 wins and 56 podiums in his 88 career starts. For reference the driver with the second most wins is Timmy Hansen who has 13. As far as podiums go, Timmy Hansen also has the second most with 45.
