A former Norwegian, Nordic and Baltic karting champion, Brynildsen switched to rallying in 2005 and has been a familiar name in the WRC's premier support category since his PWRC debut in 2008 - three weeks after he got his driving licence.

Early years were spent at the wheel of Mitsubishi Lancers, but he switched to a Skoda Fabia S2000 for SWRC campaigns in 2010 and 2011 with mixed results.

Rallying took a back seat in 2012 while Brynildsen worked hard to pull funds together and he managed just seven WRC 2 appearances, in a Ford Fiesta RRC and R5, over the next three seasons.

The Norwegian championship was the focus in 2015 and he won the title in a Fiesta RRC. That performance, and some impressive stage times on WRC appearances in Sweden and Wales, earned him a seat in an M-Sport-prepped new evolution Fiesta R5 at Rally Sweden in 2016. A broken driveshaft cost Brynildsen his shot at victory, but he came away with a new record having jumped his car 45-metres from 'Colin's Crest'.

He'll begin his 2017 WRC 2 campaign in Sweden, again at the wheel of a Fiesta R5.
