While other children his age try to complete a rally stage from the comfort and ease of their computer, a 13 year old Indonesian schoolboy, called Sean Galael is going for the real deal. The promising youngster has attracted media attention after winning the first two rounds of the KFC Junior Rally Sprint in Indonesia in a Prodrive Impreza Group N rally car. And yes, we're talking about the same spec high-powered Impreza as used in the Production World Rally Championship. Impressive to say the least.
In 2008, aged at just 12, Sean co-drove Prodrive's own works test driver, Dave Maslen, and former Australian rally champion, Cody Crocker, to victories in the Indonesian Rally Championship. For this year, the young Indonesian will once again sit in the passenger's side co-driving the Serge Motorsport Prodrive Impreza N14 in the Indonesian series.
