Finland has become synonymous with fast jumps and flat-out sections. Recent changes have lowered average speeds but the challenges remain as fierce as ever. Launched in 1951 as a selection event to identify Finnish participants into Rallye Monte-Carlo, Finland took on the name ‘Rally of 1.000 Lakes’, and joined the WRC calendar from its first season in 1973. It is a tough rally for drivers, but arguably even more so for the co-driver. Hard wide roads are mixed with narrower more technical sections with blind crests putting accuracy of pace notes on top of the priority list.

Stage times are usually very close, so even the smallest error can lose valuable seconds that are difficult to make up.
In the summer months there are few hours of darkness in Jyväskylä, home to the scenic lake-side service park for the week. The days can be long and grueling, but nothing beats the feeling of a successful finish in Finland.
