Mikko Hirvonen


Date of birth : 31/07/1980

A four-time World Rally Championship runner-up and winner of 15 rallies at the top level having driven for four factory teams, Hirvonen switched to cross-country rallying in 2015. Driving a MINI Countryman for X-Raid, Hirvonen made his Dakar debut in 2016 and finished fourth overall with one stage win. He also achieved success in the FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies, including winning the 2016 Hungarian Baja. He’s tackled selected stage rallies in recent seasons, mainly in historic-specification machinery, while his Cyprus Rally return – his first ERC start since 2002 – is purely about “having fun” with Markko Märtin’s team.
