WRC: Suninen steps up to World Rally Car

He finished runner-up in WRC 2 in 2016

Rising young Finnish star Teemu Suninen will tackle up to three gravel rounds of this season’s FIA World Rally Championship in a 2017-specification Ford Fiesta WRC.

The 22-year-old will compete at 74th PZM Rally Poland (29 June – 2 July) and Neste Rally Finland (27 – 30 July) in an M-Sport car. Discussions continue over a possible World Rally Car debut earlier in the season at Rally Italia Sardegna (8 – 11 June).

Fuel company Neste will back Suninen’s programme, which will also include five rounds of the WRC 2 support series in a Fiesta R5.
