The 28-year-old rising star Niklas Aneklev from Sweden is back for another year in the Supercar Lites class as he aims to bring home some trophies in the prestigious series of RallyX Nordic this season.

Now he is keen to get the season started at annual curtain-raiser at RallyX on Ice before the season-opener at Höljes.

Aneklev started with Supercar Lites last year as he previously raced motorcycles, he has already made a strong impression in the class as he reached the final on the fourth round at Latvia but he rolled his car at the joker-lap section on last lap.

He made a debut in the RX2 International Series in the season-finale that took place in the hot desert close to Table Mountain at Cape Town in South Africa. There he showed great pace as he crossed the line in Q4 with a fifth best time.

“Last season was really good for me, it was my first time at every track, so hopefully I will be stronger in 2020 for the experience I gained on those circuits.” Aneklev said.

“It was great to be part of such an amazing team as well – OMSE is like a big family and they gave me loads of advice, so I’m really happy to be back with them again this year. I learned a lot in 2019, but I still need to work on driving smoothly to get faster and produce more consistent lap times.”

“It was fantastic to race with the RX2 guys in South Africa, competing alongside world-class drivers. We had some great results in the qualifying races – particularly in Q4 – but unfortunately, the driveshaft failed in the semi-final which was a big shame for us. “

“I’m excited to be involved in RallyX on Ice this season. It’s a great event. I’ll be pushing for a podium there but it’ll be a strong field of drivers, so I’ll do what I can and push all the way for my sponsors.”

“I’m working hard to be on the podium in RallyX Nordic this season, too. We’re hoping to be stronger at all of the tracks. The grid is looking really competitive so we’ve been putting a lot of hard work in over the winter, and now I can’t wait to be back racing again!” Aneklev added.
