Finnish driver Jesse Vartiainen made an impressive debut at the Hockenheimring Semi Finals last year by finishing 11th and 6th in the ELITE 2 Division. The Kupio native will enter his first full-time season to build on that solid result and doesn’t feel much pressure on his shoulder.
“The move to Alex Caffi Motorsports was my first goal. I drove one event for them last season in Hockenheim, the spirit inside the team was great and I understood we can succeed together. I’m going to the first race of the season with a relaxed mind, but anyway i look forward to be able to fight soon for for the win. I look forward to all the races because the series and the tracks are all new for me. Hockenheim is the only one where i have driven it and i will have to take advantage of it,” said Vartiainen.
