PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This month, the 2013 professional rallycross season is kicking off into high gear with races scheduled for every corner of the globe. As the world’s fastest, most daring rallycross drivers are preparing to hit the track for another go ‘round, last season’s Global RallyCross (GRC) fan favorite Toomas “Topi” Heikkinen, is gaining support from Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based collaboration solutions for technical professionals. Bluebeam is sponsoring the thrill-seeking Heikkinen as he gears up to make it to the podium at X-Games and GRC events in Brazil, Germany, California and everywhere in between.
“When it comes to rallycross, Topi proves that anything is possible,” said Richard Lee, President and CEO of Bluebeam Software, who just so happens to have a penchant for fast cars and rally racing himself. “From Topi’s aggressive start in last year’s GRC kickoff in Charlotte, to his jaw-dropping crash during jump practice at the Summer X-Games in Los Angeles, and finally to his strong finish at SEMA, Topi proves there are no limits to what you can do on the rallycross track.”
“There’s nothing that can replace the thrill I get when I sit behind the wheel and put the pedal to the metal,” said Heikkinen. “I’m ready to rev up the engine of my new Ford Fiesta ST Bluebeam rally car, go for the win, and make my family, friends and sponsors proud.”
The 2013 rallycross season officially begins April 20th at Foz do Iguacu, Brazil. To see a highlight video from Topi’s 2012 GRC debut and get a preview of what to expect from Topi in 2013, click here.
