Kalle Rovanperä Racing, the flying Finn’s future with TGS Team

Special Interview

From Finland, Kalle Rovanperä, 15, son of Harri, the wonder child and Scandinavian Rally’s present top promise, will debut next year in the National Rally Latvia with a Fabia S2000 car from TGS Team managed by «Flying Finn» Toni Gardemeister. Kalle told us about his feelings, plans and goals.

Kalle, what does your father mean as teacher and experienced rally driver? Your father probably told you about his brilliant performances and experiences at Peugeot and Mitsubishi WRC, is it a great input for your professional and sporting growth in motorsport?

Yep, my father got me into motorsport and told great stories about it, but in rallying he never taught me, I have learned everything by myself.

What were your first memories inside a rally car and at what age that happened?

I was 8 years old it was totally fun, and I really wanted to drive again right away.

What kind of experience has been achieved in the local tournament Rally Latvia?

Latvia has been a great experience for me and will be in future as well.

Kalle, in 2015 you won the simple-drive class in Latvia driving a Citroën C2 with Risto Pietiläinen as co-driver. What can you tell us about that?

Risto is very important on our races and I could not hope anybody else by my side. Risto is great co-driver and has a lot of experience so it’s great to drive with him! And, sorry I will correct that in Finland and Poland only test and in Latvia races.

You had the opportunity to test for the first time on gravel in Finland and on asphalt in Poland the ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 from Toni Gardemeister’s TGS Team, what feelings did you get from these initial tests in a four-wheel drive car?

Yes, I have driven s2000 in Finland and Poland and it has been great training and experience.

Can you tell us a brief thought about Toni Gardemeister, as driver and team manager for TGS Team?

Toni’s team is a great team and I enjoy driving there and Toni is also a good guy.
Kalle, the big news for next year is your confirmation and entry in the senior class of Rally Latvia championship with a ŠKODA Fabia Super 2000 car from TGS Team. Is it a great opportunity to gain experience being a young boy of only 15 years?

Yep, next year we will drive some races on s2000 hopefully and maybe more, but that is great at this point so I can learn in peace and on my own speed.

How many rounds has the annual championship Rally Latvia and what features have the paths to compete in each event?

It has several competitions a year and its route is varied between gravel, ice, asphalt and snow.

Will this important project with the ŠKODA S200 have Risto Pietiläinen co-driving support and advice from your father Harri and Toni’s?

Now I have a good team (father, TGS) and Risto, so that’s great and I have a really good place to train and race.

Kalle, would you love to test in any time within next year the new ŠKODA Fabia R5 that soon will arrive the TGS Team squad?

I would love to test r5 next year with TGS so let’s hope the best.

What’s your favorite rally car and which WRC driver impress you more with his driving?

I don’t have any favorite driver nor car.

Kalle, where do you like to drive more: over ice, snow or gravel, dirt or asphalt?

Gravel and snow are funny surfaces, but I like to train more on asphalt because it’s tricky and important.

Is your dream to be able to race in WRC in the coming years and become World Rally Champion?

Yep, I would like to drive rally car for my job and also win championships.

THE ITALIAN RALLY JUNIOR 🇮🇹 🌎 2022 CHAMPIONSHIP UNVEILED IN CAMPIDOGLIO 🇮🇹 🌎

THE ITALIAN RALLY JUNIOR 🇮🇹 🌎 2022 CHAMPIONSHIP UNVEILED IN CAMPIDOGLIO  🇮🇹  🌎
The Italian Rally Junior 2022 Championship unveiled in Campidoglio
10 crews are ready to challenge each other in the series that launches the youngest protagonists and that will also take part in the 10th edition of the Rally di Roma Capitale. Motorsport Italia will be again on the side of ACI Sport, ACI Team Italia, Pirelli, Renault and Sparco.
The 10 crews that will take part in the Italian Rally Junior 2022 Championship have been announced today in Rome’s Piazza del Campidoglio. The series dedicated to the youngest rally protagonists devised by Automobile Club d’Italia and ACI Sport will have Motorsport Italia as technical partner and will collaborate with Pirelli, Renault and Sparco. The cars employed for this series are the brand new Renault Clio Rally5. Motorsport Italia has also introduced the 10th edition of the Rally di Roma Capitale.
This event took place in the presence of Assessor for Big Events of Roma Capitale Alessandro Onorato, Automobile Club d’Italia’s President Ing. Angelo Sticchi Damiani, CONI’s President Giovanni Malagò, the General Director of ACI’s Motorsport Marco Ferrari, the General Director of ACI Sport Marco Rogano, Automobile Club Roma’s President Giuseppina Fusco, the Vice President of Consiglio Regionale Lazio Daniele Leodori, Renault Italia’s Marketing Director Biagio Russo, Sparco’s Brand Manager Niccolò Bellazzini, Pirelli Rally Product Manager for Italy Walter Nicola and Motorsport Italia’s boss Max Rendina.
The Federation has completed an important selection of all the very young drivers born after 1994 to define the ten crews that have been presented today. These are Sara Carra-Giovanni Barbaro, Alessandro Casella-Rosario Siragusano, Guglielmo De Nuzzo-Fabio Grimaldi, Fabio Solitro-Rosario Navarra, Davide Nicelli-Tiziano Pieri, Davide Porta-Marco Demontis, Mattia Zanin-Fabio Pizzol, Davide Gianaroli-Alessio Spezzani, Matteo Ceriali-Luca Ferraris and Edoardo De Antoni-Martina Musiari.
The Italian Rally Junior Championship will include 6 rounds, four on the tarmac and two on the gravel. The opening round will be the Rallye Sanremo, whose technical stages have hosed the Rally World Championship for many years. The season will then continue with the two gravel rounds at the Rally dell’Adriatico, which will move to Urbino this year, and the historical Rally di San Marino. The second half of the season will include the Rally di Roma Capitale, which will allow crews to measure themselves with the colleagues of the FIA European Rally Championship, while the closing rounds will be the Rally 1000 Miglia and Rally Due Valli, the latter will have an increased scoring coefficient of 1.5.
A big novelty of season 2022 is the car: the Renault Clio Rally5 fitting Pirelli tyres. The Milan-based company developed for this series two compounds for tarmac, PZero RA and Cinturato RWB, and the Scorpion K for the gravel. These are tyres capable of providing performance and grip in all conditions.
The French challengers are pushed by a 1.3 litres engine capable of 180 hps and 300 Nm of torque and will certainly produce a great spectacle on the tarmac and on gravel. Special care has been devoted to safety, as the new cars will mount the new, latest generation Sparco “MASTER” racing seat developed by Sparco in compliance with the new homologation standards FIA 8855-2021 that have safety features very close to those of the Rally1 cars. The safety equipment of cars will also include the FIA 8853-2016 homologated Sparco Prime H-9 EVO seat belts with aluminium buckle to grant the highest lightness.
The collaboration with ACI Sport, Pirelli and Renault will allow the winner of season 2022 to take part in 6 rounds of the 2023 European Championship as the representative of the ACI Team Italia on an important international stage.
An important collaboration will also be with ACI Sport’s Federal School Michele Alboreto, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Always in the front line for the training and tutoring of young drivers in all the sectors of motorsport, the School directed by Raffaele Giammaria will organize several extra testing sessions to allow the protagonists of the series to improve their skills of preparing races. This activity will be led by the 12 times Italian Champion Paolo Andreucci.
In this important event staged in the Piazza del Campidoglio and in the enchanting Terrazza Caffarelli, Max Rendina and his staff also introduced the Rally di Roma Capitale 2022.
The event organized by Motorsport Italia will celebrate its 10th Anniversary this year and will do so with the double validity for the Italian Rally Championship and FIA European Rally Championship. It will also be part of the Italian Rally Junior Championship. The competition has been introduced by an exciting video teaser and will introduce several novelties both in terms of sporting content and support initiatives. This anniversary not only celebrates the first decade of the sporting event but also wishes to raise the centrality of Rome and Italy in a very important international motorsport event.
