Often referred to as Australia's own "Flying Finn", Paul Pyyvaara is undoubtedly one of the most talented and versatile drivers in Australia today.

Paul began his motor sport career in 1995, winning the Rookie of the Year award in the Queensland Gemini Series. In 1996 he won the Championship Outright.

In 1998 Paul competed in the Queensland Rally Championship in an older Datsun 260Z achieving a top five outright finish. Paul’s exciting, consistent driving caused a major upset, since the competitors in high tech, 4WD turbo-charged cars, should not have been beaten by an older car such as the Datsun 260Z. Later that year, Paul's ability was recognized by the Rolin Motorsport team and he was selected to drive their Subaru WRX in the Round Australia Rally. In this challenging event (18000km in 21 days) the team won the Group N class and consistently set outright fastest times.

2000 was a very successful year for Paul and showed how adaptable and reliable a driver he is. Paul competed with the 3..2..1..GO! Rallying team in a Commodore ute, winning the Aussie Car Class outright at his first event and with his competitive and consistent driving Paul went on to become the 2000 Aussie Car Class/P4 Class Australian Rally Champion Driver.

Most recently in 2003 Paul was invited to compete with Wei Long racing in the final round of the Chinese National Championship – with little time to adapt to a left hand drive Subaru WRX in a new country and not having competed for 2 seasons, Paul finished an incredible 2nd outright, winning the final three stages to close within 9 seconds of a debut win – only just being beaten by the current Chinese National Champion.

Paul is also more than just a driver, being regularly involved in driver training, corporate events, community work with youth and speaking engagements between events thanks to his marketable personality and the profile developed through motorsport. This further provides opportunity to promote the team and its sponsors.
