Set Promotion has won the Pro Motorsport Finlandia award from the Finnish ASN AKK Motorsport.


Set Promotion, who competes in Rally and Rallycross, has won the ‘Pro Motorsport Finlandia’ award. The award is given to a person or an organisation that has successfully promoted Finnish motorsports abroad. It is issued by AKK Motorsport.

“This is a great and valuable recognition. For a while now we have been working professionally, ambitiously and successfully in Finland as well as in Europe. In terms of Rallycross this is a great thing for the sport itself,” says team manager Jussi Pinomäki.

The past season the team from Turku won the European Rallycross Championship (Norwegian Andreas Bakkerud with Renault Twingo Mk2) as well as finishing third (Finn Jussi-Petteri Leppihalme with Renault Clio Mk2). Overall Set Promotion has won four Finnish championships and six European championships, in addition to 11 medals.

“We employ twelve people and every one of them deserves this award. This is not my award, it belongs to the whole team. We enjoy working and have fun, while take things seriously and sensibly. I am also pleased on behalf of our sponsors,” emphasises Pinomäki.

In addition to racing Set Promotion sells and builds Renault race cars and their parts. Set Promotion will announce its programme, equipment and drivers for 2013 in the next few weeks. In the past season there were six different drivers in Set Promotion cars competing in the ERC.
