Young Finnish rally driver Emil Lindholm has presented a five-round campaign in the 2021 FIA World Rally Championship in the WRC3 class, with the first competition starting later this month at the Croatia Rally at 22-25 April.

The Finn will be continuing to compete in Portugal, Italy, Estonia and Finland. Of the five rounds he plans to attend, the first-four will be run together with the Turkish Toksport WRT team, which already previously operates three cars on behalf of Skoda Motorsport, two in WRC2 and one in WRC3.

The final round that will be taking place in Finland on his home soil, will be for the newly established Finnish team TGR Worldwide, a team which is ran by the former WRC driver Toni Gardemeister.

Top opportunity. My goal for a long time now has been to get a seat in the WRC3 class in the World Rally Championship, and now it’s happening. My goal, of course, is to drive well. The level of the class is hard, but we start to drive our own best and good investments. It is really important for the future that I get experience of the WRC races,” Lindholm said.

“Although spring is well under way, the situation at the WRC3 is completely open. Our goal for next year is to continue in the WRC2, so this agreement is a significant step for us next season as well.”
