Bergqvist enjoyed success in motocross as a youngster and he reached youth championship level before a succession of injuries prompted a switch to rallying in 2010.

Armed with a selection of Volvo saloons, he threw himself into the Swedish club rally scene for three seasons and then devised a plan to get to World Championship level.

Step one came in 2013, when he swapped the Volvo for a Ford Fiesta R2 and took two class victories in the Swedish championship.

Step two was achieved the next year, when he embarked on a full season in Germany's ADAC Opel Rallye Cup. He won it outright and was named Sweden's Junior World Rally Driver of the year.

Step three was to win an international title, and Bergqvist did that in 2015 when he was crowned FIA European junior champion.

Bergqvist stepped up to the world stage to tackle WRC 2 in a Citroën DS 3 R5 in 2016 and 2017 but met with limited success. He stepped back to the Junior WRC for 2018 and lifted the title to earn a 2019 prize drive back in WRC 2 in a Ford Fiesta R5.
