*** update ***
from http://www.rallycross.com/:
The young Finn joined Eklund Motorsport and is taking part in the 2010 Finnish Rallycross Championship with a SAAB 9-3 ASS. "Toomas' priority this season is clearly the Finnish Rallycross Championship," says Per Eklund. "He just need as much as possible practice as he is still new to the sport of Rallycross and therefore he is on the entry list. The results he will get here today are less important, he is not here to win. We also decided to let him use the 'old' SAAB 9-3 but after this event i will prepare the SAAB 9-3 ASS again for the next event in the Finnish championship on Saturday at Hyvinkää."
