Rally careerEdit

Kuldar Sikk began his co-driver in 1998, co-driving for several drivers. In the 2003 Monte Carlo Rally, he made his WRC debut in a Suzuki Ignis S1600. The rally also marks the beginning of the partnership with Urmo Aava.[2]

From 2010, Sikk became the co-driver of the rising star Ott Tänak.[3] Two years later, in the 2012 Rally Sweden, the Estonian crew took their first stage win on SS14.[4] Another five rounds later, Sikk achieved his first and only WRC podium finish.[5]

After a short partnership with the Ukrainian rally driver Yuriy Protasov, he was co-driving for three more drivers in 2016 and 2017.[6]

Starting from 2018 Rally Sweden, Sikk became the co-driver of Ken Torn in the Junior World Rally Championship.[7]
