Lukas Andersson looks ahead to 2024

One of the great revelations of the rallycross scene last year thanks to his third place overall in the Supercar Lites category of the RallyX championship, Lukas Andersson seems more determined than ever to prove that last year’s performances were no coincidence.

A transfer from the Junior CrossCar category, the 15-year-old Swede set the record books on fire in 2023. With three wins in the first four races of the championship, Lukas Andersson had even established himself as a strong favourite for the title, before the experienced Simon Olofsson and Martin Enlund managed to push him back in the Supercar Lites hierarchy.

With less than two months to go until the RallyX championship kicks off at Tierp, the JC Raceteknik driver is looking forward to his second campaign at this level of competition.

“I feel good. Now that I’ve got a bit more experience with the car, I think it will help me to reduce the mistakes I made last year and become more consistent,” Lukas points out.

Ahead of the Tierp event, Lukas is taking advantage of the final weeks of the off-season to fine-tune his preparations for the 2024 campaign.

“Apart from a few trips on the ice this winter behind the wheel of old Volvos, I haven’t competed in a single race since the end of last season. I’m just making sure that I stay in top shape by taking care of my physical condition. But before the championship starts, I’ll do some tests with the car to get my bearings so that I can start the new season in the best possible condition.”

Although Martin Enlund has decided to leave Supercar Lites for Supercar, Lukas will be up against two of the category’s heavyweights. As well as Casper Jansson, fresh from his Nitrocross title, he will also have to take on two-time RallyX champion Simon Olofsson.

“The good thing is that I know what I have to do if I want to compete with these drivers,” continues Lukas.

“In any case, my strategy will be the same as last year. I don’t know how things will work out, but I will do everything I can to be among the fastest. Like everyone else I want to win races, but I also know that I still have a lot to learn in this category. On the other hand, the big difference with 2023 is that I can go into the championship knowing that I feel completely at home behind the wheel of this car.”

“I know I can achieve great things this year. As always, I’m going into this championship with the intention of showing the best version of myself every weekend. I want to continue to progress and make the most of every moment.”
