Mattias Ekstrom is Sweden’s most-successful motorsport competitor of the past 20 years, and a master of both sealed and loose surfaces. An impressive touring car career (he was just 22 when he became Swedish Champion) brought him all the way to a pair of DTM crowns plus a Spa 24 Hours victory in Audi machinery. But it was rallycross – in which father Bengt had been a strong competitor himself – that was his first love. It was therefore fitting when he became World Champion in that discipline in 2016 with his own EKS team.

Career Highlights

  • 2x DTM Champion
  • 2011 Spa 24H winner
  • 2016 World Rallycross Champion
