Driven storms into Europe with Patrik Sandell

After three years of tremendous success, they've now opened Driven Europe in Sweden with veteran racer Patrik Sandell.

Sandell a native Swede, races for Bryan Herta in Global Rallycross. In 2016, he is currently fourth in the championship standings with a victory under his belt.

"We are excited to bring Driven to Europe. I have been driving with a Driven steering wheel for quite some time now and are very pleased with the quality of the wheel. Both Linnea and I are super excited to get going with this, we are right now building a dealer network all over Europe. I know a lot of people in the motorsport business in Europe and that will help us get this amazing brand out to new clients all over Europe," said Sandell.

Driven has also expanded their products far beyond steering wheels, with racing seats, belts, gloves and even a clothing line.  

"We have made our mark on the American market, but our customers and dealers in Europe have had a demand for our products," said Skolnick. "With an office and warehouse in Sweden, we are now able to offer our customers the same great quality products we have in the states, but for a more affordable price point."

Their wheels are used across the globe from karting to the upper echelon of motorsports.
