Neste rally

Its that time of year again when the cars and helicopters come to town and  Jyväskylä is a beehive of activity.  The neste oil rally which is part of the world rally championship circuit is back in town. Formerly known as the 1000 lakes rally (The reason will appear obvious if you ever look at the map of Central Finland on googlemaps.), it has gained the reputation of being the highest-speed rally on the circuit. Drivers from all over the world come to prove their skill and car manufacturers use the rally as a proving ground for their machines.

Last year’s rally was won by the current world champion, Sebastian Loeb. This event has been won on several occasions by the local drivers such as Gronhölm (7-times),  Mikkola (7-times) and Mäkinnen  (5-times)  in previous years.

Highlights from last year’s event. Please restrict your fast driving to xbox, playstation and any other game console.

Have a nice day.
