Toni started his racing career in karting in 2013 and moved to rally in 2020. Already in the 2018 season, Toni competed in two rally sprint races, finishing fourth in his class in both.
At only 19 years old, Toni has shown that he is capable of driving at the top of his class in a variety of conditions.
- "Toni's strengths are steadiness and calmness," says Tero Puustinen, fitness and mental trainer at Flying Finn Academy.
Toni was scheduled to drive a full season in the Rally Finland Junior Championship in 2019, but a bad wrist injury in winter ruined his participation in the first two races of the winter season. However, positions 2, 5 and 3 in the final period gave Toni the fourth place in the series.
