‘Gus’ as he is affectionately known by pretty much everyone, arrived onto the racing scene fairly late, but had plenty of natural talent; originally part of Fredrik Mathiesen’s Kyosho Sweden team he then spent a few years racing Mugen; always at the front fighting but his time really came 2005-06 as  he raced the worlds warm up in Jakarta, Indonesia and finished a strong 4th, his competitiveness that year was backed up by the Nordic Championships win in Finland. 2007 his move to Losi saw his form dip, but return in a great battle for the 2008 Swedish nationals; chasing Svensson all the way to the flag. A wonderful personality to be around in the paddock.

I started RC racing in 99 after having a motocross career that ended with injuries. Being into RC now for these years made me a lot of friends around the world, and the sport has been great to be involved in. Highlights in my career has been to travel to so many countries and learn about different cultures and meet people who share the same interest…and enjoyed good racing.
