Co-driver Miikka Anttila.

We tested the car for little over 100 km before the rally. We managed to adjust the car to be suitable to the conditions of the rally. Rally didn´t start as planned, when gear selector broke down and it stucked to third gear. Anyhow I was able to drive 60 SS km on third gear to get to service. Problem was fixed in service and Friday went ok after that. On Saturday there was long stages ahead and many of them were quite rocky too. Sunday´s first stage was somewhat familiar to me from year 2003 Costa Smeralda rally. I succeed in making an excellent time on that one. Our drive was rewarded with the victory of group N and 16th place in overalls.

16th overall, class 1st
