A 13 year-old Indonesian schoolboy, Sean Galael, is attracting the attention of the rallying world after winning the first two rounds of the KFC Junior Rally Sprint in Indonesia.
Sean competed in a Prodrive Impreza Group N rally car, which was built to the same specification as is used in the Production class of the World Rally Championship.
Sean is already very familiar with the high-powered Impreza rally car because he's more accustomed to sitting in the co-driver's seat. Last year, aged just 12, he sat as co-driver alongside Prodrive's own works test driver, Dave Maslen, as well as former Australian rally champion, Cody Crocker. Together, they racked up victories in the Indonesian Rally Championship.
This year, he will again co-drive the Serge Motorsport Prodrive Impreza N14 in the Indonesian series. Unfortunately for Sean, he is too young to compete as a driver.
Sean got into rally driving through his father, Ricardo Galael, who won the Indonesian Championship in 2006.
