24-year-old two-time RallyX Nordic champion Thomas Bryntesson from the Norway-Sweden border is keen to get back out on track for first time season as he will be making his RallyX Nordic comeback at the All-Star ‘Magic Weekend‘ at Höljes on 2-5 July.

Bryntesson has been a race-winner in every rallycross series he has participated in, making his RX Lites (now RX2) debut in 2015 at a top-level, he also took home the title in the Supercar Lites in 2016 on RallyX Nordic. The following year he signed a contract with JC Raceteknik to drive one of their Ford Fiesta Supercar, that year he also secured the Supercar honour.

He failed to defend his championship title in 2018 and lost out to the Norwegian youngster Oliver Solberg, last season he made his switch over to the FIA European Rallycross Championship with his own private team in a ex-Marklund Motorsport Volkswagen Polo under the TBRX banner.

After securing a third place finish at the end of the season at Riga and also claiming a win at Estering, becoming the second driver beside the champion Robin Larsson and Jean-Baptiste Dubourg to win a round. Bryntesson is now set to bring out his Polo to Höljes and fight against his main Euro RX rival Larsson once again.

“I’m really excited, it’s going to be a lot of fun to finally compete again – the last time for me was in the Euro RX finale in Latvia back in September. I’m looking forward to racing against all the other guys in the Supercar category – there are some really big names in the field and a lot of World RX drivers and teams, so it’s such a cool starting grid and the competition is clearly going to be extremely tough.” Bryntesson said.

“We’ve been working hard on the Polo and have hopefully managed to bring some improvements to both the car and engine, though we’ve only been able to do one test so far so we still ideally need to get a bit more running under our belts before the race weekend.

“I really encourage everybody to tune in and follow all the action via the livestream. Höljes is a special place for me, as it is for so many people in our sport – I remember going along to watch there even before I began racing myself. We all need to do our bit to support this wonderful track – now more than ever…”

For the 2020 livery, Bryntesson has choosed a more darker grey rather than his last season black colour alongside the baby blue and orange colour of his main sponsor Gulf and Haunter.
