The younger sister of former FIA Euro RX TouringCar event-winner Magda Andersson, Klara Andersson began racing herself in karting at the age of seven, spending the next six years competing in her native Sweden as well as further afield.

Multiple regional championship titles followed, but it wasn’t until 2018 that Andersson turned her attentions to rallycross, immediately falling in love with the discipline. After scooping the runner-up spoils in the Swedish Junior Rallycross Championship in 2020, the FIA Rally Star ambassador impressively clinched the overall crown a year later behind the wheel of a BMW 120 before making her FIA RX2e Championship bow at Spa-Francorchamps.

Belying her lack of experience in the single-make series, the Sweden Junior National Team member finished an impressive fourth first time out, missing the podium by barely a second after getting the better of champion-elect Guillaume De Ridder in an enthralling Q2 duel. She returned for the Nürburgring season finale, before stepping up to the World Championship – as the first permanent female competitor in World RX history – with Construction Equipment Dealer Team in 2022.
