Stig Rune Skjærmoen paired up with Ole Christian ahead of the 2016-season. Stig Rune is no rookie in the motorsport business, and brings with him valuable experience from many events. He started co-driving in 2002, and since then he can count 61 rally-starts in total, both national and internationally. Stig Rune had his first outing with Ole Christian Veiby in 2013, where they competed 6 events in the Norwegian Rally Championship. In 2012 he competed in the JuniorWRC alongside Pontus Tidemand.
Ole Christian say this about his 29-year-old co-driver:
“Stig Rune has taught me so much. My career began with him next to me. Together we built a pacenote system, which Anders (Jæger) and I have developed even further over the past year. Stig Rune is fit for fight and motivated for the job we have ahead of us. I find it very reassuring to start the season with something familiar and I look forward to continue with a co-driver I know I have a great teamwork with.”
