Eriksen began his co-driving career in 2009, calling notes for fellow Norwegian Frank Tore Larsen in the Norwegian championship.

The pair progressed through the ranks together, trading up their Nissan Almera GTi first to a Ford Fiesta ST, then a Fiesta R2 and finally an R5. He was Norwegian Champion with Larsen in 2012 and 2014 and competed further afield, mixing in a number of European Championship events.

In 2016 Erikson got his first taste of the WRC, working as part of Mads Østberg’s weather and gravel note crew at Adapta Motorsport, and that fired his enthusiasm ahead of his most ambitious season yet in 2017.

Along with another Norwegian campaign alongside Larsen, Eriksen partnered Fredrik Åhlin in the British Championship and continued to work with Østberg’s Adapta Motorsport firm. After Mads split with co-driver Ola Fløene mid season, Eriksen was drafted in for the WRC rounds in Finland and Spain, establishing a pairing that is expected to continue in 2018.
