Filip Thorén started karting at the age of seven, with the Swedish youngster racing in national events until the age of 15. He then took a break from motorsport before returning to the traditional Swedish folkracing circuit in 2018.
This taste of competition led to Thorén catching the racing bug once more, and a full-time entry into the 2020 Junior Swedish Rallycross Championship followed. His first season in the category, driving at the wheel of his BMW E36, resulted in a sixth-place finish and 2021 started off with a podium at Höljes but a campaign of differing fortunes ultimately led to eighth overall.
Now Thorén is looking to broaden his motorsport experience further by joining the RX2e championship.
