The younger sister of FIA Euro RX TouringCar event-winner Magda Andersson, Klara Andersson began competing herself in karting at the age of seven, spending the next six years racing in her native Sweden as well as further afield.
Multiple regional championship titles ensued, but it wasn’t until 2018 that Andersson followed in her sister’s wheeltracks by turning her attentions to rallycross. 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 rookie status 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 season finale, prior to stepping up to the World Championship – as the first permanent female competitor in World RX history – with Construction Equipment Dealer Team in 2022.
After advancing to the final and out-pointing experienced, race-winning team-mate Niclas Grönholm on her debut in Hell, Andersson made history again when she reached the rostrum at Montalegre and then came within an ace of pipping multiple world champion Johan Kristoffersson to the top spot in the pair’s progression race at the Nürburgring. She was retained by the team for a second consecutive campaign at the highest level in 2023.
