    There’s not much to say about Toomas Heikkinen’s sophomore effort in Global Rallycross, outside of a single exclamation: “wow.” “Wow,” as in “wow, nobody expected Heikkinen to be a top-five driver after his inconsistency and major accident last season.” “Wow,” as in “wow, nobody thought he would come right out of the gate and nearly […]
