Bluebeam Software Issues Statement in Support of its Rally Car Driver, Toomas Heikkinen, Following X-Games Accident



As many Bluebeam customers know, Bluebeam is sponsoring Finnish Rally Car driver Toomas “Topi” Heikkinen this year as he makes his Global RallyCross debut. In June at the X-Games, Topi suffered a fractured ankle after crashing his Ford Fiesta rally car while attempting a 70-foot jump during practice runs. In response to his accident, Bluebeam President and CEO, Richard Lee, issued the following statement:

“Topi, his family and teammates are in our thoughts as he recovers from the injuries he sustained during the X-Games,” said Lee. “Throughout the Global RallyCross season, Topi has demonstrated that he is a fearless, no limits competitor. Topi is a part of the Bluebeam family and we know that his winning spirit and competitive edge will help him recover quickly from this accident. We are looking forward to his full recovery and seeing him back on the track.”

In addition to Topi’s accident last month, teammate Marcus Grönholm was injured during practice runs the following Saturday.

“We would also like to extend our thoughts and best wishes to Topi’s teammate, Marcus Grönholm and his family,” added Lee. “I had the honor of working with Marcus last year, and have admired his skill and love for rally ever since. We at Bluebeam are wishing him a healthy and speedy recovery.”
