There are few rules that are universal to literally every type of motor racing. One of them is that if you want to win, you have to have a Finn. All the great drivers have been Finnish – Mika Hakkinen, Tomi Makinen, Dale Earnhardt (look it up). Thankfully, you can now get your very own Finnish name, too.
Finnish names are very distinct, and many of them derive from some combination of words in the Finnish language. The language itself is very distinct, in that it's distantly related to Hungarian and Estonian but not much else. But if you want to win, and you wish you could be a Finn, Finland's tourism board has just the thing for you.
My new Finnish/racing name is Tuisku Manner, or Blowysnow Mainland, which makes sense and totally, 100% fits both my personality and racing style.
So what's your Finnish racing name? Mikka Varvlonen? Heikki Hamaleinen? Dale Earnhardt, Jr.? Let us know in the comments below!
