Markus Saarinen

Saarinen comes from a racing background having raced Corvetts, Mazdas, karts and even a motorcycle in the Baja 1000. He always had a desire to rally racing, which prompted him to attend the Dirt Fish Rally School in 2012.

He discovered that he had the skills necessary to compete and entered his first Rally America event, the 2013 Sno*Drift Rally, in a Mini Cooper.
