I am 34 years old car mechanic from Finland.I am married and I have two children.

Rally has always been my biggest interest. My father, who past away two years ago, was driving rally in the 80's and 90's with Sunbeam Avenger.Then my 3 older brothers started to drive rally in the 90's. My first race was in 2002 at the age of 17 and it was a rallysprint competition. Car that I used was Toyota Starlet and our family had that same car until 2018 when we sold it. Most of the rallyes that I participated were blind rallyes so we did not have pacenotes. There was also a couple of races with pacenotes and I was also a co-driver in few rallyes. 2014 I drove my last real rally event. Lots of good and funny memories from those times.

First console rallygame that I played was Colin McRae Rally and I think that there is only a few rallygame that I haven't played at all. Until 2012 I was playing with pad but then I bought my first wheel and I also built self-made rig. At the end of 2017 I noticed that new wrc esport season was starting in January. I decided to participate and at the end of the season I was 9th in the championship, only 1 point away from the grand final. Then in season 4 I was 8th in the champioship and that gave me a place in the grand final in Wales.That was a great experience and hope that I can make it to the finals again this season.
