Rally Finland has become synonymous with fast jumps and flat-out sections. Although changes have lowered average speeds, the challenges remain as fierce as ever. 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 gruelling, but nothing beats the feeling of a successful finish in Finland.
Taking place in the autumn for the first time, the 2021 edition of Rally Finland brought additional challenges for our crews. Weathering the tricky conditions, our team secured our fourth double podium of the season, with Ott/Martin second and Craig/Paul third.
