Co-driver Miikka Anttila.

My first World Rally Championship round on tarmac. The accident in Jim Clark was in my mind on first day and I drove really cautiously. On second day I got rid of my tension. My times were getting better even weather kept changing from wet to dry and back. I made only one mistake and I drove off. On third day at first service halt 10 s. we got time penalty, because we couldn´t decide what tyres to take soon enough. But day went well otherwise and I was in finish 17th overall. I lost 16th place by 6s due to time penalty.

17th overall
