Co-driver Miikka Anttila.

Pressures were enormous in start, because two previous contests in asphalt in Britain had ended to ditch. I started very cautiously, but I found my confidence and speed soon. We stayed in second place in slippery asphalt for a long time. On third last stage one Irish guy passed us by in times and we tried to catch him. But I didn´t do very well, I overshot a junction and engine stopped. I tried to start but I didn´t manage before I switched the main current off and on again. We lost 45 seconds and we were fourth. In finish I was disappointed but on the other hand I had learned again a lot.

4th overall
