Swedish driver Patrik Sandell started his motorsports career when he first tried rallycross at age 16.   One year later, Sandell drove stage rally for the first time and was immediately hooked.  From 2003 to 2012, Sandell drove for various teams and competed in multiple series to tally a combined five championships.  In 2013, he campaigned his first full Red Bull Global Rallycross season with Olsbergs MSE where he stayed for two seasons.

In 2015, Sandell switched to a new team to the series, Bryan Herta Rallysport, where he was consistently one of the fastest drivers each round. He earned four podium finishes, and one victory for his new team, but finished eighth in points standing due to a string of bad luck at the end of the season.  Sandell and Bryan Herta Rallysport are back together again in 2016, and looking for redemption.  He claimed his first victory of the 2016 season in Dallas’s June race.
