Letter 2.7.2001 from event’s Route Master / Communications manager Jarmo Vähä-Touru:

“Congratulations Jari-Matti from nice rally!

It was great to follow your driving in so called Lasimyymälä corner. I felt that you have good genetics and driving lines are place. With journalist from Vauhdin Maailma we noted that you’re driving just like Jari in his previous years. We were there at first pass. Speed was good because all the three haystacks got hitted. You will be the champion in one day. Keep on going and tell greeting to Jari. Tell him that he is “too” old either.”
