Racing makes happy

Car racing has fascinated people since the first race between Paris and Rouen in 1894. We, the founders of Polar Racing, have succumbed to this fascination since our youth, and as racing enthusiasts, we have been thinking about how we can make the true fascination of car racing accessible to others.

We finally found the solution in the Finnish JOKKIS series, which offers two exciting and unusual racing formats with rallycross and ice racing. And JOKKIS is driven in Finland, which according to the 2020 Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s happiness report is the happiest country on earth.

So we have defined a simple goal for Polar Racing: To combine the most beautiful and exciting sides of Finland into a very special experience for our customers – fascinating racing and a unique attitude towards life.

And make people happy!

I have been running a car repair shop in Kittilä for years and at Polar Racing I am responsible for the technology of the cars before and during our events.

Growing up in a racer family, I gained my first experiences with race cars of the Finnish Everyman series “JOKKIS” in early childhood.

When I’m not dealing with the technology of the vehicles, I pass on my racing experience to our customers as an instructor.
