Finland’s Juha Rytkonen – one of the stars of the CapitalBox World RX of Finland – will take the wheel of the Ferratum Team Ford Fiesta Supercar in the World RX of Catalunya-Barcelona (17-18 October). 

Rytkonen’s podium finish on his World RX debut with the GRX SET team in a Hyundai i20 caught the eye of the Ferratum Team, which has fielded its Ford Fiesta with Finland’s Jani Paasonen in the first two race weekends of the 2020 season, and again for the Neste World RX of Riga-Latvia this week.

Rytkonen was second to championship leader Johan Kristoffersson on his World RX debut, and has already tested Ferratum Team’s car. He will be back in action for the World RX of Catalunya-Barcelona. “Rallycross requires a lot of resources, both money and partners, for a layman. I really appreciate the cooperation opportunity with Ferratum. For me, it indicates that we did the right things with our team and our hard work paid off. I want to show my support to Ferratum by driving the best I can. I have always thought that this is what I want to do, and I want to be at the top. I did not expect the start to be this good, though. In the future, I want to establish my position in rallycross, and especially in the world championship level,” said Rytkonen.

Ferratum Team’s lead driver Paasonen said: “Juha did a great job in his first championship round. It is a pleasure to have him in our team.”
