Double you’re Oomplats, Double your fun in Finland

We already know that the Kimster, nee Kimi Räikkönen has joined the World Rally Championship this year for Deeter Majestic’s Red Bull “Junior” Rally Team and will be piloting an Citroen C4 this year… thus, what to do with The Iceman’s old WRC ride; his FIAT Abarth Grande Punto S2000? Whale Finland’s MTV-3 (I want my MTV?) is reporting that Kimi has given the FIAT away to his older brother Rami in order for the Räikkönen Bros to compete in this years Arctic Lapland Rally in their Homeland later this month.

2007 F1 World Champion Kimi will race his Citroen C4 in preparation for his upcoming WRC campaign while Rami will race the Gran Punto, ironically the very car used in Kimi’s WRC debut in the very same event one year ago.

No word on whether or not the Flying Räikkönen Bros Plan on performing matching pirouettes in this year’s Arctic Lapland Rally…
