Rally Finland 2017

27th July 2017 - 30th July 2017


 Smooth and blisteringly fast gravel roads, buried among Finland’s forests and lakes, are characterised by massive jumps.  University town of Jyväskylä is the hub of everything and Paviljonki service park in the centre draws huge crowds.  Rally starts on Thursday evening with Harju street stage in the town.  Friday is a marathon with almost 16 hours at the wheel. Drivers head west for favourites such as Jukojärvi and Urria, before turning east to classics including Laukaa and Lankamaa.  Saturday routes competitors south to Jämsä and the legendary Ouninpohja – Finland’s signature stage. Same tests as 2016, but mostly driven in the opposite direction.  Sunday’s finale is a carbon copy of last year, heading south of Jyväskylä and east of Lake Päijänne.
