Joining Rally wasn’t that hard for him as he hails from a rally driver as his father was also a rally driver and the 1989 European Rally Champion.

After joining the rally in 2014, in 2015 he made his entry into rallying in the JWRC category in Portugal. His debut was quite impressive finishing 2nd in his category alongside his co-driver Victor Belotto.

In 2016, he made his debut on the WRC2 campaign driving a Peugeot 207 s2000 in Portugal. However, the car was headed on a retirement which led to a switch to a Citroen DS3 R5 owned by PH Sport.

In 2017, he began his rally year with PH Sport in Sweden but retired due to an engine failure. Following the engine failure he moved to M-Sport driving the Ford Fiesta R5 alongside Teemu Suninen and Eric Camilli.

The year went on to be more successful for him, recording more points with his best result being a 4th finish in Catalunya but with no podium.

In 2018, he began his year with the FIA ERC campaign but with a new ride driving a Hyundai 120 R5 for BRC Racing Team.
