Prodrive to run Nikara in Sweden

This will be the young Finnish driver's second outing with the MINI WRC.

The Prodrive WRC Team will run Jarkko Nikara at Rally Sweden in February.

This will be the young Finnish driver's second outing with the MINI WRC, following his excellent debut at Rally Spain in November where he finished fifth, despite it being only his first competitive outing in a World Rally Car.

Prodrive, business development director, Richard Taylor, said: "Nikara's mature performance on the tarmac in Spain was even more extraordinary given it wasn't his favourite surface and that he only had 50km of testing in the MINI prior to the event.

He clearly has a great deal of talent and if he can continue from where he left off in Spain, I am sure he can produce another great result."

In Sweden, Nikara will run alongside the Motorsport Italia MINI of Michal Kosciuszko.

It was previously announced that the Mentos team would start their WRC 2 campaign in Sweden in the MINI S2000. They will now start their campaign in Portugal.
