Co-driver Teppo Leino.
Originally my father supposed to drive this rally, but he said I would benefit much more driving this rally than he would. SS1 went really bad, because I didn´t find rhythm. Then we made some adjustements and after that everything started to work and so stage times improved. The rest of the day was ok. Maybe I drove too much sideways because in the end there was quite big gab between us and the lead.
I was not quite satisfied to fourth place but now I know what to improve in my driving. We´ll see in future how that goes.
4th overall, Class 4th
