30.9.2012 - Emil Lindholm 4th fastest in FINRace v1600 CUP

In season 2012 Emil Lindholm, age of 15, son of eight times Finnish Rally Champion mr. Sebastian Lindholm followed his father and his older brother (Axel) and measured his speed in rally and in racing behind the steering wheel of Magenta Racing FWD Volkswagen Polo and Lupo GTi.

As his big brother Axel Lindholm is studying and working in England, Emil with his father Sebastian Lindholm represented Sebateam in selected rally and circuit racing events.

- Not far from his born, Emil has been very interessed about motorsport. Now at age of 15 he's experienced it by himself, team manager Sebastian Lindholm tells.

After six podiums Emil drove in winter he has continued good results also on circuit. In his first-ever circuit race he start from final position and after colorful driving he finished the event in seventh position by passing 12 fellow competitors. In next day he had a start from fourth grid and took his first-ever podium position by finishing the race in third position.

Five weeks later at Botniaring he start from sixth grid. Once again he made superb job and finished the event in third position. However in fourth round he wasn't so lucky and crossed the finish line in sixth position.

One week after WRC Rally Finland Emil continued his debut racing season and started driving from sixth grid. In Saturday he was able to pass one driver and finished the event in fifth position and in Sunday he finished the event in fourth position.

In penultimate round of FINRace v1600 Cup, which was driven in circuit of Ahvenisto, Emil drove sixth and fifth positions. In final weekend in Motopark he achieved his best-ever circuit result by driving second fastest qualifying lap. Unfortunately he was forced to retire the first race due impact and damages his car suffered in the race. Due the retirement Emil started the final race in 14th grid. During the slippery conditions race he showed his talent and speeded up to leadership before having a off and dropping into fifth position.

Still fourth position in very competiive FINRace v1600 CUP is an excellent result especially when knowing this was his debut season on circuit.
