Snow, ice, and a Solberg win. All in a weekend’s work for Petter and Oliver; who joined forces at the 2022 Race Of Champions to take a record breaking victory - as the first family pairing to win the RoC Nations’ Cup.
Driving a variety of cars on the frozen Baltic Sea in this very first-ever Race of Champions ‘Snow + Ice’; the Solberg duo were in full control as they took on a star-studded list of rivals from global motorsport; including Formula 1, WRC, and Endurance racing.
“You have no idea how much this means. I won the Nations’ Cup before (as Team Nordic with Tom Kristensen in 2014), but that was nothing like this,” explained Petter. “I tell you, for a father, to compete with their son against some of the best guys in the world and win is something to make you very, very proud. Oliver was very cool for all of the races, no problem, no mistakes, nothing. He just gets on and drives.”
“I was driving and enjoying the event and really enjoying being in the team with Oliver. This is a fantastic start to Race of Champions, to see Team Norway on top of the world in Sweden… this makes me happy.”
