Dan Öberg made his rallycross debut midway through 2020, at Sweden’s mythical Höljes circuit behind the wheel of an MKIVRX Volkswagen Scirocco Supercar – and with zero prior experience of driving on gravel. 

Going on to contest the full RallyX Nordic season that year, he advanced to the semi-final stage at only the second time of asking and progressed through to the final in the last round, securing 12th spot in the overall standings.

The Swede simultaneously entered the truncated FIA European Rallycross Championship campaign, reaching the semi-final in Latvia, and in 2021, he steps up again to World RX, having traded his Scirocco for a Hedströms Motorsport-run Volkswagen Polo.
