Passion for motor sport unites people from all over the world. If Italy is the home of the fastest sports cars, then Finland is the home of the fastest drivers in motorsport.
One wonders why there are so many F1 drivers in Finland. Indeed, these drivers practice a special Sisu art! Finnish drivers keep their cool and inner strength. Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas, for example, are very calm, maintain the critical spirit even in extreme situations. This is the answer to why both also took part in rally races.
Besides, we already have a lot of talented Finnish WRC drivers. Tommi Makinen, Marcus Gronholm, Mikko Hirvonen Toni Gardemeister and Jari-Matti Latvala, the current Toyota Gazoo Racing WRC team principal, are famous as flying Finns.
Motorsport here has a unique feel for fans, but for all its citizens. Racing events here are full of tradition. It’s about Finland’s passion for car racing, a bit about traditions and culture and, of course, about what unites us – motorsport.
