Kevin Hansen is a Swedish rallycross driver.
Still in the early stages of his promising racing career, Kevin had an impressive 2019 season, winning the World RX of Abu Dhabi and gaining a number of second-place finishes as he ended the season in third place overall.
Two more podium finishes came in 2020 as Kevin finished fifth overall, before securing a second career victory at the Catalunya curtain-raiser in 2021. This was followed by five more podium finishes as he finished in fourth place in the championship and helped his family-run outfit win a second World Championship Teams’ title in three years.
With the RX Lites Cup already in his hands and a number of victories under his belt, it’s safe to say his future is looking very bright.

What music do you like to listen to when you drive?
Listening to music while driving can take away a lot of focus. But getting out on highways and cruising, I truly enjoy listen to music that makes me engage and sing along.
Do you have any mileage that you fancy the most to drive, why this one?
I really fancy a good long trip if I can share the ride with my family or friends.
What is your best tip to drive smart?
To me, there are two crucial key factors for smart driving. The first: look and check what’s happening around you. The second: learn and get to know your car, and how it’s reacting to your inputs of the throttle, break and engine breaking. Combining these two crucial factors will take you really far in this competition.
Why should anyone join your team?
I will work closely with my teammates and try to combine the two factors of smart driving. Together we will aim to enjoy our driving, push ourselves to do better and drive super smart and safe! By doing so, I believe we can win every race, even the greatest one of them all: the race for saving our planet!
