During the lockdowns Oliver also won the Rally Sweden Lockdown rally event that was held for some weeks ago and now he is ready to be back once again in his Citroën DS3 Supercar when he will be entering the All-Star ‘Magic Weekend’ at Höljes on 2-5 July.

“Everything is a little bit different this year, and we have to be really thankful for people putting together events like this, or sure, this Magic Weekend will be different to the ones we saw before, but the main thing is that we are going to be racing and that is fantastic news.” Oliver said.

“It will be strange to race without the fans, but I don’t think we’ll notice while we’re driving – there’s always enough to keep you focussed in the car – and you never know, this event is looking so big that it might even tempt my father out of retirement…”
