A THS Exclusive: Heikkinen Battles to Stay in GRC Spotlight

Bill Wood published on

Global Rallycross points leader Toomas “Topi” Heikkinen is the only driver in the series to have medaled in every rallycross round of the season so far. This weekend the series is on the high-banked oval at Atlanta Motor Speedway. A win for Heikkinein would be his fifth straight. Six hundred horsepower subcompacts buzzing at high rpm on the oval will be fun to watch certainly. (Photos: Greg Dorman)

Heikkinen’s aggressive driving style is made for such an environment. He said he’s focused and anxious to keep at the sharp end of the field the rest of hte season. Heikkinen’s no stranger to the spotlight. An accident at X Games Los Angeles last year nearly ended his career. This conversation with Tech House & Speed was before the GRC round in Bristol, Tennessee. TRT: 12:35
