Gustav Johansson: The Story of Will and Skill

  • EevaV 

We are happy to introduce the newest Silver Level driver of the Grumblo Drivers Program and the Grumblo Family, Gustav Johansson.

Gustav, or as we know him, VG Racing is doing an amazing job in the GDP and for that reason we want all of you to know how awesome he is!
He joined the program a short while ago and he has already proven himself a force to be reckoned with!
He uploads great content practically every week and we love seeing his videos, because they are funny!
Basically, what I’m trying to say is, check out his profile!
Gustav has reached the Silver Level in the GDP and is collecting points fast! He has been putting in the work and he deserves all the glory for it!
Now, lets get to know Gustav.

1. What was your favorite moment in the season 2018?

First race in Höljes. Swedish Championship in Rallycross. Not the best result because of broken drive shaft. The coolest thing about Höljes was driving on a track that I have made many laps in Dirt Rally (PC Game).

2. What are you looking forward to the most in the upcoming season?

Bimmers of Sweden because of all the nice people and pretty cars! Not to forget, track driving.

3. Who has been your inspiration in your racing career?

Ken. Ken Block.

4. Do you have some lucky rituals before a competition?

Yes! Take a track walk and listen to good music before racing.

5. Do you have a lucky charm you always have with you during a competition?

Omg. I have. Since the first race I have had a squirrel!

The squirrel must have been around for quite a while, because Gustav started racing when he was only 14 years old.
This basically means that he has a lot of experience, despite his young age, so hats off to him!

6. If you could be a car part, what part would you be?

I want to be a gearbox! Cool stuff inside those.

7. Who is your frenemy right now?

This was the most difficult question for me. I have many friends and most of them push me to do better all the time. To choose one, it would be Andreas Mathiason. One of my mechanics and friends, (of course).

Well, as you can see, a frenemy doesn’t always have to be someone you race against.
A frenemy can be a friend who keeps pushing you forward and makes sure you do your best even if you don’t want to! 😀

Now we know a bit more about Gustav. I have to say, it has been a pleasure to watch him in action, because he truly has a passion for driving.
Keep an eye on this guy, he is one to watch for sure!
