With the absence of Matthew Wilson – due to an injury during training last week – on this the second round of the WRC, Go Fast is pleased to confirm that Ott Tänak and co-driver Kuldar Sikk will support Henning Solberg and Ilka Minor in promoting the Go Fast brand on the snow-covered stages of Rally Sweden this week.
Making his WRC debut at the 2011 season finale in Wales last year, Tänak impressed from the off. Overcoming early problems, the Estonian made an instant impact on the world stage to secure sixth place overall. The 24 year-old’s asphalt debut with the Ford Fiesta RS WRC soon followed as he teamed up with Ford Factory driver Jari-Matti Latvala at the 2011 Rallye du Var. Setting competitive times throughout, the youngster claimed his first stage win along with his first podium on the French asphalt.
2012 sees Tänak contest his first full season in the WRC with 13 rounds in a Ford Fiesta RS WRC. In a mature drive beyond his 24 years, the youngster proved he has intelligence as well as out right pace at the season opener in Monte-Carlo last month. On his first experience of the unforgiving roads, Tänak controlled his speed, gaining experience with each new stage to collate the valuable knowledge required to become a future Monte winner.
With his obvious speed behind the wheel and his ability to deliver a good result, Tänak is the perfect candidate to further promote the Go Fast brand.
