Rally Finland: Private SKODA FABIA Rally2 evo crews aim for another class win for the Czech brand
Locals Emil Lindholm/Reeta Hämäläinen (ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo) had a difficult time in the 2021 WRC3 season. But Emil Lindholm, as brand ambassador supported by ŠKODA Finland, found fresh motivation by finishing the category third at the recent Acropolis Rally Greece at the wheel of the Toksport WRT run ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo. The young Spaniard, sharing Rallye Team Spain’s ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo with co-driver Borja Odriozola, aims to improve his seventh position in the current WRC3 points standings. Among the 27 Rally2 cars on the entry list, 13 crews rely on the Rally2 version of the FABIA, making ŠKODA again the most popular brand in this class.
Rally Finland offers 19 special stages totalling roughly 287 kilometres. ...the event first took place in 1951 under the name “Jyväskylän Suurajot”, translating roughly to “Grand Prix of Jyväskylä”?
