The Rally Finland is the ninth round of the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship and despite no ŠKODA Motorsport cars competing this year, there is still no shortage of FABIA R5s taking part.

Norwegian crew of Ole Christian Veiby / Stig Rune Skjærmoen (Printsport Oy) won the last round at the Rally Poland and they are looking to continue their fine form in 2017. And there are five teams driving ŠKODA FABIA R5 cars and competing in WRC2 category: Quentin Gilbert / Renaud Jamoul (Tagai Racing Technology), Raul Jeets / Kuldar Sikk (Sports Racing Technologies), Umberto Scandola / Michele Ferrara (S.A. Motorsport Italia Srl), Juuso Nordgren / Mikael Korhonen (TGS Worldwide OU) and Jari Huttunen / Antti Linnaketo (Printsport Oy).

There are a further eight cars taking part which are not competing in the WRC2.
