The Finnish round of the World Rally Championship, Neste Oil Rally Finland, gets its own music festival to accompany it. A three-day Rally Zone event supplements the traditional rally that starts from Jyväskylä. Rally Zone will be held 30.7.-1.8., and the festival area is close to the Service Park at the Jyväskylä harbour.
The Finnish round of the World Rally Championship is now immortalised on a stamp. The motorsport classic, which will be run for the 65th time this year, is represented by a photo from the Ouninpohja special stage.
The route of Neste Oil Rally Finland 2015, the Finnish round of the FIA World Rally Championship, is ready. It will be tackled in late July and early August and it is very much based on last year's route, which has been praised as the 'best ever'. Some extra momentum has been added to Friday - there is no service whatsoever during the day. Need to arrange mechanic's training for the drivers - maybe put a trailer behind the rally car? Not quite. Keeping calm is the key when you drive almost 160 km of special stages without being able to do more than only a few tyre changes.
The first official document to reveal all the secrets of Neste Oil Rally Finland 2015 to competitors, media representatives and the general public has been published on our website.
- Mexico is very different from the rest. We are driving in thin air, which decreases the engine power. Actually, it has a bigger effect on the WRC2 cars than WRC cars as the WRC2 turbo technology is not as sophisticated and you can´t compensate for the lack of oxygen by the turbo settings.
- My plan is just to drive flat out; I'm not going to stress about this rally. There are always so many variables that it's no use to make too detailed plans beforehand.
