Larsen Racing System (shortened to LRS) was a Swedish racing team founded by former works Saab WSRC driver Björn Larsen to enter the WTCM touring car series in 1989. It initially ran Larsen's then-21yr old son, Andreas in the series, running a privately entered Volvo 240 Turbo.
After initial success in its debut season, winning the 1989 WTCM Independent's Championship with Slim Borgudd, (with Larsen 5th in the final standings) with a highlight being a 7th place overall finish at Bathurst, the team continued to run primarily Scandinavian drivers in various international touring car series throughout the 1990s, becoming a well-established privateer outfit for both Volvo and Opel at times.
By 2019, it has expanded into a number of series, including the new Touring Car World Series as Volvo's works team, and as "Opel by Larsen Racing System" running the eponymous German manufacturer's team in Group B Rallycross.
