Konsta Lappalainen

  • Place of Residence: Espoo, Finland
  • Date of Birth: August 11th 2001
  • Team: Emil Frey Racing

I’m a second-generation motorsport driver and the next generation of rising stars among Finnish motorsport drivers. In the 2018 season I won the NEZ F4 championship series and then I stepped up to the FIA Formula 3 Regional series on European tracks. Now in season 2021 my goals are set for top positions in GT World Challenge Sprint & Endurance series as Swizz Emil Frey Racing driver.

Despite my young age, I have many years of experience on international circuits as I started racing at karting. In early years of my career I have won Karting Finnish Championship series.
