Flying Finn Korhola out for WRC3 vengeance

Benjamin Korhola starts Secto Rally Finland (3 - 6 August) as one of the victory favourites in the hugely competitive WRC3 category.

The 20-year-old Finn notched up an impressive six benchmark times on his FIA World Rally Championship debut in Estonia last month but a trip into a ditch on day one meant that his impressive pace was not reflected in the overall results.

With Rautio Motorsport team-mate and series leader Roope Korhonen upgrading to R5 machinery for his home fixture, Korhola - who is co-driven by Pekka Kelander - has a chance to set the record straight this week.

Toni Herranen, another fellow Finn, is also one to watch. The youngster, just 19 years old, finished on the podium in Estonia as well as at Vodafone Rally de Portugal earlier this season.

Turkey’s Ali Türkkan and Czech Republic’s Filip Kohn make their respective Finland debuts. In addition to the aforementioned Finns, they’ll face a gaggle of local drivers including Jesse Kallio, Kristian Nieminen and Henri Timonen.

Marek Paciorkowski and Petr Borodin, both championship newcomers, round out the 13-strong Ford Fiesta Rally3 entry in Jyväskylä.
