Anders Grondal is the third generation rally driver in his family. His grandfather Nils Fredrik and father Stein competed
in both rallying and rallycross, and his uncle Knut Fredrik was a Norwegian hillclimb champion.
Anders has been competing since 2003, after former Skoda factory driver John Haugland spotted his potential. Grondal won his
first rally in 2006 in an ex-Petter Solberg Subaru Impreza WRC and the following year finished third in the Norwegian Championship,
also lifting his country's hillclimb title. After a second title in 2009, Grondal won both the rally and hillclimb crowns
in 2010, despite breaking his back in a rally crash and learning that he was 1.5cm shorter after his recovery! Grondal added
another hillclimb crown in 2011.
