Ari Vatanen, visiting SAF Training Academy

Ari Vatanen, famous Finnish rally driver, has countless victories on Peugeot, Ford and Citroën but his name is most often associated with the mythical 205 T16. World champion of the rallies for the first time in 1981, it then enchains the palmares. Several times winners of the Paris-Dakar, it was the mythical race of Pike's Peak that brought him the most spin-off.

Also a pilot of helicopters, Ari Vatanen, accompanied by his wife Rita, came Thursday 28 September to try to pilot the AS350 simulator.
