Oliver Solberg

Oliver Solberg (born 23 September 2001) is a Swedish rally driver. He is the son of the 2003 World Rally Champion, Petter Solberg, and Swedish mother Pernilla Walfridsson, who is also a successful former rally driver.

Oliver was introduced to the world of the WRC even before his first birthday, attending the 2002 Cyprus Rally with his mother to watch his father compete. By the age of eight he was competing in crosskarting, winning his first ever race. Over the next years he won multiple Norwegian and Nordic Crosskart Championships. In 2017 he took his first big step into professional motorsport, entering the RallyX Nordic Championship in his father's FIA World Rallycross Championship-winning DS3. After winning two events in 2017, Oliver returned in 2018 to win the Championship with 3 overall wins - including a dramatic victory at the final race of the season in Tierp.
