Huge success for Team Associated Finland in 2012!

September 10, 2012

Summer season is now over in Finland and Team Associated had an awesome season! There were four races during the summer season and top driver Petri Ström won almost everything. Petri won Finnish Championships in Modified 2WD and 4WD classes, Nordic championship title in 2WD Modified, and he almost made it to the A Mains in 1/10 Euro Champs in 2WD and 4WD.

Another superstar at the moment, Joona Haatanen (9 years old), also had the best season of his career this far! His best result in 2012 was third place in Nordic Champs 2WD Modified. The media here already loves the boy! The only thing he cannot do is to open a Champagne bottle.
