Johan Kristoffersson was as good as destined to become something of a motorsport talent, as his father Tommy competed in rallycross and in the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC). This is also where Johan garnered his first experience in the junior section in 2008, before moving up to the main STCC category a year later. He was the 2011 championship runner-up in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, and clinched his first titles a year later, winning the STCC, the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and the Superstars International Series in Italy. Johan Kristoffersson’s activities in the 2013 and 2014 seasons included the Swedish Rallycross Championship and he also won the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia again in 2013.

Johan Kristoffersson competed full season in the FIA World Rallycross in 2015, and clinched 2nd overall in championship with a Volkswagen Polo RX. He also claimed the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia title, as early as 3 events before the season ended.

With the brand new team Volkswagen RX Team Sweden, Johan competed full 2016 season in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. 3 podiums send him to the FIA prize galla in Vienna, where he could pick up the silver trophy as a proof for 2nd O/A.

In 2017 Johan teamed up with team Petter Solberg and Volkswagen Motorsport with the aim to be champions with the Polo RX. The season turned out to be a record-breaking season, as Johan won 7 of the 12 rounds in the championship and took home the World Champion Title. The PSRX team also claimed the manufacturer-title.

2018 became another successful year for Johan in the PSRX-team. He won 11 of 12 events with the Volkswagen Polo Supercar in the 2018 FIA World Rally Cross Championship and claimed his second World Champion Title.

In 2019 Johan Kristofferson will compete in the WTCR with a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR, as well as trying out the Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 on selected rallies.
