Arto Ojaranta

I was born 01/2001 and I live in Kirkkonummi, Finland. I started kart at the outdoor track in the KF6 class at the age of 8. In 2014 I drove in the KF3 -class (under Porkkala racing colors) and for the season 2015 I shifted to the KFJ -class (under the Mad Croc team colors). I started with the 6-gear kingship class KZ2 2016 and I drove in Hemet racing team season 2016 and 2017. I went back to the Porkkala racing for the seasons 2018 and 2019, achieving in Finnish Championship competition bronze medal in 2018 and the clearest gold medal in 2019. The 2020 season was driven by the SFN Motorsport team, reaching the SM silver, I drove the same year in the Italian factory team throughout the Italian championship series, as well as the World Championships races in Lonato, Italy. The season 2021 was really challenging due to the Korona pandemic, as a result of which the Competition Calendar had to be centralized in Finland. I drove the KZ2 SM bronze and the World Championships in Kristianstad, Sweden, from the Porkkala Racing team. The 2021 season also included a Finnish Formula 4 class race weekend, which resulted in a win.

2021 Formula 4, Kemora Finnish Championship race: 1st place (Koiranen GP)

2021 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 3rd place (Porkkala Racing)

2020 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 2nd place (SFN Motorsport)

2019 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 1st place (Porkkala Racing

2018 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 3rd place (Porkkala Racing)

2017 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 8th place (Hemet Racing)

2016 KZ2 Finnish Championship: 4th place (Hemet Racing)

During seasons 2017 (in Hemet racing), 2018 (in CRG S.P.A.) and 2020 (SC Performance) I sought international experience by driving all the European and World Championship races. I also participated some of the TAG Shifter and Estonian Championship races to improve my driving skills in different levels of racing. In 2019, I drove only the Finnish Championship races, because when there was the World Championship in Italy, I had a sinusitis and fever, so I couldn't drive there.

During all winter I focus to my physical fitness for example with CrossFit and doing different kind of exercises. I also practice year-round with simulator.

The realities of the 2023-2024 seasons are largely dependent on the sponsors. The dream and main goal is to get to the LMP 3 class, when the race would be run in Asia or Europe.

The biggest goal for 2023-2025 is to get into the LMP 3 class and get a factory driver's seat there.
