While the Solberg family lives on a farm in Mitandersfors, Sweden, the team’s headquarters are located roughly 40 kilometres away in Torsby – Pernilla’s home town. The outfit employs about 20 people on a permanent basis. Petter is team owner, Pernilla team principal. They still have great plans for the future together, although Petter will presumably be making way behind the wheel for other drivers in the foreseeable future. “We want to win more titles with the team and to help young drivers become world champions,” says Petter.
Oliver follows in his father’s footsteps
One of those who could go on to great things is their son Oliver. He may not yet have a driving licence, but special regulations have allowed him to drive at rallies in Latvia and Estonia, as well as in the Nordic Rallycross championship. “He is faster than I was at that age,” says dad Petter.
