Reigning World RX Champion and two-time DTM Champion Mattias Ekstrom grew up with rallycross and spent a large part of his youth in RX paddocks with his dad Bengt, who drove in the European Championship. The Swedish driver has raced his way across the globe for more than 20 years. Ekstrom set up EKS back in 2014 and only two years later, he won both the drivers' and teams' championship alongside his Finnish team-mate Topi Heikkinen.  Both drivers compete in a Audi S1 EKS RX quattro and in 2017 it was announced that the team will receive factory support from Audi Sport.  EKS will also field a third car in 2017 with Reinis Nitiss confirmed to drive a third Audi S1 EKS RX quattro.
