His greatest achievement was a second place in the 1932 Swedish GP but he also achieved a lot of victories and podium positions in local races. A used cars salesman and repair shop owner KeinÃ¤nen also proved to be very inventive, spending lot of time and effort on his pioneer work in creating tyre chains and studs for snow and ice. He retired from racing as late as 1963.
