Robert Virves made a one-off appearance on Rally Estonia in 2020 and was able to fund his drive thanks to a crowd-funding campaign that captured the passion of Estonia’s rally fans. He didn’t disappoint either, leading most of the rally and taking everybody by surprise until a heartbreak came by a puncture with only three stages to go. Virves hit back straight away with two stage wins and was able to claim third on his Junior WRC debut. Despite his disappointment, he proved more than anything that he will be one to watch for 2021.
