After a junior career in karting, Jari Ketomaa began rallying in 1995 and won the Group N category of the Finnish Championship in both 2006 and 2007.
That provided the momentum for a PWRC campaign in the WRC in 2008 and Ketomaa piloted a Subaru Impreza to third in the standings.
He regained the national Group N title in 2009 and also made his World Rally Car debut at his native Rally Finland, taking a superb seventh place. Ketomaa was back in the WRC in 2010, finishing fourth in the SWRC in a Ford Fiesta S2000 with three category wins.
Ketomaa started just two rallies in WRC 2 last year, but claimed maximum points in Finland and was second in Britain.
