TIMMY HANSEN #21
TEAM: Red Bull Hansen NRX Team
DATE OF BIRTH: May 21, 1992
HOMETOWN: Götene, Sweden
VEHICLE: Red Bull Peugeot 208 NRX
Since winning the very first Nitro RX event at Utah in 2018, Hansen claimed the WorldRX championship in 2019 in the closest ever finish, snatching the trophy on count back from Andreas Bakkerud. That victory seems to have lifted a weight from Timmy’s shoulders, and after a disappointing 2020 he has bounced back to be a major force in 2021. He leads the WorldRX standings after 2 wins and is likely to take a second title, has won a round of ExtremeE with his teammate Catie Munnings, and won the first Nitro RX event of the 2021 season in Utah. Hansen is a man on a mission.
Timmy Hansen dominated the early days of Nitro RX, placing first at the 2018 inaugural event and third at the 2019 event. He has 12 World Rallycross Championship wins and was crowned the WRC champion in 2019. He started his career in Open Wheel racing Swedish Karting Championship (champion in 2008) before moving on to rallycross in 2011.
Kevin is the son of 14-time European Rallycross Champion Kenneth Hansen, and older brother to rallycross driver Kevin Hansen.
