Route

  • 2015 route details yet to be announced.
  • University town of Jyväskylä is the hub of everything and Paviljonki service park in the centre draws huge crowds.
  • Classic smooth gravel stages among forests and lakes with massive jumps. 

Challenge

  • A mix of hard, wide roads with narrower more technical sections.
  • Flat out from start to finish. It is affectionately known as the Finnish Grand Prix and nine of the 10 fastest WRC rallies have been here.
  • Pace notes must be perfect. Blind crests often hide corners and it’s vital to position the car correctly before take-off to ensure maximum speed through the bend.
  • Speeds are so high that time differences are small and there is little opportunity to regain time after a mistake.
  • One of the hardest rallies for co-drivers as high speeds demand a constant, pinpoint accurate delivery of pace notes.
  • Mastering the jumps. If the speed is too high, the car’s aerodynamics will force the back down and the front will rise. The tactic is to brake before take-off and accelerate full throttle over the jump.
