Team Ylinen is a karting team of twin boys, Joona & Niklas. The boys started karting at the age of 4 in 2018. After two sessions, the boys insisted on having their own karts and the hobby became more active. The brothers started racing in 2020 in the Cadet category when the required age, 6 years, was reached.


Their long-term goals are set at the highest level of motorsport. The boys' dream is, of course, Formula 1 or some other series where they can race professionally. The motivation to train is high and the desire to learn new things and become faster is strong. Together with the whole family and partners, we are building towards this goal one step at a time.


In 2023, boys have been driven the Raket Flying Finn SJM Micro CUP series. The goal is to achieve success in the series and to develop as a driver in many areas.

"The best part is when you get to race and then play with your racing mates in the pit"

Without partners, competing in karting would be challenging. As drivers move up to bigger classes, the season budget increases. We are actively looking for new partners. We are able to offer double visibility with two drivers. Join us to support Joona and Niklas. You'll be able to dive into the secrets of motorsport from the ringside seats. Get in touch! Even a small support matters.
