Johan Kristoffersson is a Swedish racecar driver. He is a four-time World Champion having won the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021. In 2018 he won a record-breaking 11 out of 12 events in the championship.
Deciding to embark on a new challenge, Johan spent 2019 competing in the World Touring Car Cup and ran a part-time campaign in the Norwegian Rally Championship. However, the switch was short-lived as he returned to the FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2020 and duly won his third title.
In 2021, Johan set out for another adventure, becoming part of the FIA-sanctioned international off-road racing series, Extreme E Racing. Driving for Rosberg X Racing, he won the inaugural race of the championship in Saudi Arabia and was crowned champion at the final race of the season in Dorset, England. Some big results followed in RX as well, where Johan excelled throughout the shortened season and became champion for the fourth time.
The year 2022 started with even more success for Johan. He got the perfect start in defending his Extreme E title, winning the opening race of the new season – the Desert X-Prix, in Saudi Arabia.
