Keivo says that the aspect he enjoys most regarding his work are his colleagues who have grown so close that they have become friends with whom to keep contact on a daily basis. Keivo also brings out that his job as a furnace master is never routine, thus ensuring that each day is different – new challenges, new experiences!
A lack of routine is essential when it comes to Keivo because he has had a deep interest in machinery since childhood and has driven different vehicles. He got his first buggy at the beginning of basic school and he was 16 when he raced his first season. By now, Keivo has represented Estonia at several major championships and has earned podium spots in Latvia and Lithuania. However, none of this would have happened unless Keivo’s father had first taken him to see the races in Latvia and introduced him to the sport. Owing to his father, Keivo is now able to represent Estonia in rallycross under number 69!
