A 13 year old Indonesian schoolboy, called 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, the same specification as is used in the Production World Rally Championship.

Sean is already very familiar with the high-powered Impreza rally car, but is more accustomed to sitting in the co-driver’s seat. Last year, aged just 12, he co-drove Prodrive’s own works test driver, Dave Maslen, and former Australian rally champion, Cody Crocker, to victories in the Indonesian Rally Championship. This year, he will once 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, who won the Indonesian Championship in 2006.
