Ole Christian Veiby is a name well-known in both rallycross and rallying circles, having achieved considerable success in both disciplines.
After finishing seventh in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia at the age of just 16 in 2013, Veiby turned his attentions to rallycross, making four World Championship appearances in 2014 and 2015 in a Kristoffersson Motorsport-prepared Volkswagen Polo and twice advancing to the semi-final stage.
The Norwegian simultaneously excelled in European competition, triumphing in Barcelona in his sophomore season in the headlining Supercar (now Euro RX1) class and additionally ascending the podium at Mettet and Franciacorta on his way to third in the title table.
Veiby subsequently switched to rallying, making sporadic appearances in the FIA World Rally Championship and placing inside the top ten on multiple occasions. In parallel with that, he has showcased his talents via a brace of victories and multiple rostrum results in the supporting WRC2 category, where he has been a consistent front-runner, securing a career-high fourth in the standings in 2020 behind the wheel of a Hyundai Motorsport-run i20.
The Kongsvinger native returned to rallycross with JC Raceteknik’s Audi S1 in RallyX Nordic in 2022, prior to rejoining the Euro RX fray for Höljes’ famous ‘Magic Weekend’ in the same car. Barely a month later, he announced a full-time World RX comeback as team-mate to Johan Kristoffersson at Volkswagen Dealerteam BAUHAUS for the beginning of the sport’s electric era – going on to tally five podium finishes en route to fourth in the overall classification.
