Co-driver Miikka Anttila.

Sticky start but my driving improved as we went on, until on Friday evening we had our first puncture. We changed the tyre in the middle of the stage. Misfortune followed us on the same stage, universal ball joint snapped due to exertion and the wheel turned under the car. Retirement was inevitable. We continued on Saturday, thanks to the Super Rally rules. We drove the 2nd fastest time in group N on the first stage the next morning, but we had too much speed and not enough concentration which two together caused driving off on the second stage. The rear of our car hit an iron pole and rear spring broke. We tried to continue but the right rear wheel came off and we retired once again.
