Juuso Nordgren is on his way to putting the small Finnish town of Karkkila back on the rally map – some decades after the great Markku Alén started his career in the village north-west of Helsinki.
Nordgren is just at the beginning of his, although already named Future Rally Star of Finland in 2016 by the country’s motorsport federation. That award came after he won his country’s junior championship the previous season.

The reward was a funded drive at Neste Rally Finland, where Nordgren celebrated his WRC debut and finished third in the Junior WRC rankings.

As a boy, Nordgren divided his enthusiasm between playing ice hockey and watching
rallying. His father was a rally driver and Nordgren took his first motorsport steps in karting, finishing second in the 2011 Finnish championship.

He made his rally debut in 2014 and after winning the Finnish junior title in 2015, he came second in the championship’s R2 class in 2016 in a Peugeot 208.

In 2017 Nordgren stepped up to WRC 2, driving a privately-entered Skoda Fabia on selected rounds. He was drafted into Skoda Motorsport’s factory team as part of the Czech manufacturer’s junior development programme and will drive for the squad in 2018.
