There is still everything to play for with 16 drivers retaining a theoretical chance of wrapping up one of those six spots. Having said that, Izamusing and Kriim, who are currently tied in third position on 138 points, should qualify simply by scoring points in Finland, with only a slight mathematical chance of them missing out.
Sami-Joe, despite having already wrapped up regular season MVP honours, still has the matter of attempting to lead his team to victory in the Teams’ Championship. The young Lebanese driver has in recent rounds been lacking support from his Seventh Gear e-Sport Club team-mates, who continue to finish down the leaderboard, putting Race Clutch in pole position to retain their championship title.
With the teams' lead having changed hands on multiple occasions this season, Race Clutch have in recent events managed to build a healthy 40-point advantage, which now seemingly looks unsurpassable.
For the Finnish round of the championship, drivers are presented with two challenges: Horkka and Laukka. Laukka is expected to be the biggest test, totaling more than 21km and being run in the evening.
Beginning on 23 July, competition remains open to all players on WRC 9 through to 28 July.
