The focus of the rallying world turns to Scandinavia this weekend as the Rally Finland marks the eighth round of the World Rally Championship.
This three-leg, twenty-four stage gravel event, which has a total competitive distance of more than 330km is renowned for its long jumps and tremendous speed and this means even the slightest error by the driver, co-driver or team, can be the difference between places in the final standings.
Alongside the ŠKODA Motorsport cars, there is also a number of customer teams putting their FABIA R5 through its paces at this event. Team Oreca’s Finnish pairing of Teemu Suninen / Mikko Markkula have excelled in the WRC2 championship thus far and at their home rally hopes are high for another strong finish. Australians Scott Pedder / Dale Moscatt and Poles Hubert Ptaszek / Maciej Szczepaniak are also taking part along with the local Finnish teams Jukka Metsälä / Sari Ohra-Aho and Kari Hytönen / Ada Herranen.
