Esapekka Lappi is considered a young sensation, winning the 2016 WRC2 at just 25 years-old, before signing with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) WRT in the 2017 season. The young driver then sealed his place on the team in his 4th appearance for Rally Finland where he took home his first WRC win of his career on his home ground.
Every good driver needs a co-driver that supports him through the toughest stages across the world. Completing the prospective duo in the 2017 WRC Car no.12 is Lappi’s co-driver Janne Ferm! Since his first WRC event at 3 years-old, Janne dreamt of being a co-driver in a world rally car. Having achieved his dream, he has since been the co-driver of Lappi in the WRC2. After winning the WRC2 in 2016 and Rally Finland in the 2017 season, the pair have become the most favorable duo to watch.
Even though they both enjoy spending time with their families in the off-season, their focus on the stages never changes as they push toward winning their first WRC championship together.
With the aim to setting the fastest times on every stage, Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm is a pair that you’d definitely want to follow, with highlights of their extraordinary jumps throughout the 2017 season, filled with edge-of-the-seat action.
