Following a successful formative career in karting, Thomas Bryntesson made his rallycross debut in a BMW E30 in 2014, clinching the Norwegian crown at the first time of asking. That success very much set the tone, as he has since been a winner in every series he has contested.

Following a successful formative career in karting – claiming title triumphs in Norwegian and Scandinavian competition – Thomas Bryntesson made his rallycross debut in a BMW E30 in 2014, clinching the Norwegian crown at the first time of asking. That success very much set the tone, as he has since been a winner in every series he has contested.

Switching to Supercar Lites for 2015, the Swede battled countrymen Kevin Hansen and Kevin Eriksson for RX Lites honours in his maiden season in the class, winning more races than his two rivals but ultimately placing third overall after missing the opening round. He simultaneously triumphed in two of his three starts in RallyX Nordic, before lifting the laurels the following season and securing the runner-up spoils in RX Lites.

In 2017, Bryntesson made it back-to-back RallyX Nordic titles after stepping up to Supercar (now RX1) level. That same year, he made his Euro RX debut, finishing second in the standings and triumphing at Lohéac behind the wheel of a JC Raceteknik-run Ford Fiesta.

Maintaining that front-running form, in 2018, the Värmland native once again fought for RallyX Nordic honours and placed fourth in the Euro RX title table. A switch to a TBRX Volkswagen Polo in 2019 yielded third in the Euro RX classification and another victory, this time in Germany, but 2020 would subsequently be a troubled campaign, beset by persistent engine issues.
