A successful ice hockey player in his youth – competing at elite U16 and J18 level – Gustav Bergström made his motor racing debut in 2021 in the second-tier Supercar Lites category in both RallyX Nordic and the Swedish Rallycross Championship, before stepping up to the headlining Supercar class.

The Stockholm native – the son of Ronnie Bergström, a Kristoffersson Motorsport engineer for many seasons in Sweden’s domestic touring car series (STCC) – joined the Euro RX1 fray for Höljes’ ‘Magic Weekend’ in 2022, missing out on a semi-final berth by barely two seconds in the high-calibre field. He partners multiple world champion Johan Kristoffersson and Ole Christian Veiby at Volkswagen Dealerteam BAUHAUS for World RX’s inaugural electric campaign.

Away from rallycross, Bergström has contested the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, Porsche Sprint Challenge Scandinavia and a number of 24-hour races, winning the 992-Am category of the 24H Dubai in a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and scooping the runner-up spoils in-class in the 12H Mugello alongside World RX stablemates Kristoffersson and Veiby.
