After an extremely successful Rotax Euro Challenge campaign, Olli was rewarded with a ticket to the Rotax World Finals - The World Championship for the Junior Rotax Class.
This special one-off event puts all invited drivers in the same brand of kart chassis and utilises pooled engines - meaning the equipment disparity would be at a minimum, allowing drivers skill and adaptability to shine through at the World Championship event.
Olli did himself very proud at the World Finals in Sarno. After a difficult Pre-Final lead him to starting 22nd on the grid, he made fantastic progress to end up 8th overall in the World Finals. On his way, he also took the lap record - underlining his pace at the event and capped off a great 2016 season.
The decision was announced late in the year that Olli would make the step up into single-seater racing in 2017, as he will race in the British F4 Championship with Arden Motorsport.
