Suninen has forged a reputation as a promising talent following his rally debut in 2013.

He made his mark in the 2014 Rally Finland when, on his WRC debut, he won the WRC 3 class.

That result got him noticed by Toyota Motorsport in Cologne who signed him to its TMG Junior Driver Development Programme.

The deal got him six WRC outings in 2015 with the Oreca team, initially in an R3 spec DS 3 and later at the wheel of a Ford Fiesta R5. He added two more rounds himself, driving a privately-run Skoda Fabia R5.

Highlights were a WRC 3 class win at Rally Italia Sardegna with the DS 3, and a WRC 2 class win on the final round in Wales in the Skoda.

Suninen remains in TMG’s development scheme for 2016 and will this time enter the full WRC 2 season in a Skoda Fabia R5 run by Oreca.
