Co-driver Carl Williamson.

My first rally with four-wheel drive. It was very dusty through the rally. On two last stages we had gearbox troubles and motor temperature was a bit too high, but I managed to drive to the finish line.

Motorsport news: “After two stages promising Finnish youngster Jari-Matti Latvala set third fastest time and moved up to fourth overall, revelling in the increased grip from his Mitsubishi Lancer E6. Latvala continued to impress finishing sixth”.

6th overall, Class B13 5th
