Ole Kristian Temte (born September 23, 1975) is a rallycross driver from Krokstadelva, Norway. His racing career started in 2009, and he switched to supercars in 2015. He has competed in the RallyX Nordic Championship,[2][not specific enough to verify] the FIA World Rallycross Championship,[3][4] and the European Rallycross Championship.[5] Temte was a permanent driver in the European Rallycross Championship 2017.[6][needs update]

History[edit]

KNA-Eiker introduced rallycross to Temte in 2008 by asking him to drive in a race. He bought his first rallycross car, a Volvo 240.

In 2010, a big crash almost ended his career during a race at Lyngås [nb]. Temte was out from racing for 11 months, and suffered a permanent damage to his left arm.

Temte has driven a Citroën C4 for supercars since 2015.
