The final day of Rally Finland is one of the shortest of the WRC season.
After a last 15 minute service in Jyvaskyla from 0820hrs, drivers face just three stages east of the city covering 40.47km before the finish ceremony at 1330hrs.
The opening stage at Lankamaa is the longest of the rally at 23.09km.
Weather conditions were dry and bright as cars arrived in Jyvaskyla this morning. Conditions are expected to remain the same throughout the day. The temperature at 0800hrs was 13 degrees Celsius.
Rally leader Sebastien Loeb heads the rally cars through the remaining stages, followed by his main rival, Mikko Hirvonen. Following yesterday’s retirements of P-G Andersson, Gigi Galli, Luis Perez Companc and Federico Villagra, 14 WRC cars remain in the event.
