KNA collaborates with Norway’s Olympic and Paralympic Committee

04.03.20

The Royal Automobile Club of Norway (KNA) collaborated with the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee to support the development of the National Motorsport Team’s young drivers.

The 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship runner-up Andres Bakkerud and FIA World Rally Championship event-winner Andreas Mikkelsen, along with up and coming single-seater racer Dennis Hauger and pro-drifter Fredric Aasbø were part of a training camp run by several Olympic trainers and focused on such areas as physical and mental training and nutrition. 

The aim of the collaboration was to assess how motor sport can learn from other discipline and how the lessons learnt can be applied to development of young drivers.

Royal Automobile Club of Norway (KNA)
Founded in 1907, the Royal Automobile Club of Norway (KNA) offers traditional member benefits (i.e. discounts, legal and technical assistance, roadside assistance, social club setting, etc.) and works on traffic safety, consumer issues and motor sport events. In 1932, KNA established a motorsport division with view to developing, promoting and managing Norwegian motorsport. This division is currently known as the Norwegian Automobile-Sport Federation (NBF) - an organization that today involves a number of motorsport clubs and operates as a separate entity. The Club has recently been involved in the Rally Sweden, which this year was particularly challenging due to little snow and ice on the course. The event was nonetheless made possible by the efforts of vast volunteer crews on either side of the Norway-Sweden border.
