Tuomas finishes Top 5 in FISRA Digital Rallycross Series
The Finnish Sim Racing Association assembled the very best drivers to contest the Digital Rallycross SM 2020 event, and if we know anything about Finnish drivers, they are some of the best in the world in that discipline.
Our own Tuomas Tähtelä was on hand for the event, which was also broadcast live on TV and on stream. For Tuomas who until a couple of months ago had not driven a Rallycross car, it was a big change from his Porsche Cup Car, or GT cars.
Despite being less experienced than most, including the current iRacing Rallycross World Champion, Tuomas would qualify a commendable 6th place. He'd go onto finish 3rd in his heat, 2nd in the consolation race and would start the Final in 6th place.
The final was an interesting affair, and like most in Rallycross not without drama. There were a few incidents, however Tuomas managed to avoid most, however did drop some time with a slowdown. In the end he would finish in 5th place, and a performance we are all very proud of. Maybe a tilt at the Rallycross WCS is on the cards? 🤔
Many thanks to all of the sponsors of the event, and of course FISRA for their tireless effort in this series, and others they run.
