Random Snap>> Loeb Wins In Finland

Regular Speedhunters will remember we touched on the ‘Rally Finland’ round of the World Rally Championship last week.

The Ouninpohja stage may have been destroyed, but there were plenty of other jumps as you can see. The Rally took place over last weekend and  Sebastien Loeb finally broke his duck, winning at this tough event.

Loeb and co-driver Daniel Elena is only the third non-Scandinavian to have won this blue ribboned event. The win takes Loeb within one point of the lead of the Championship. Mikko Hirvonen (who we featured last week) leads the series with six rounds to go.

What's new, Loeb always wins.


....not at the 1000 Lakes. Its the first time he's won here ever. It was a bogey event for Leob, just like the Rally GB.

As the article mentions, in all the years (around 50-60) only three non-Scandanvian crews have won, so its actually quite an achievment


The Finnish drivers are raised on these unique roads and so they have an inherent capability and sixth sense when they drive on them. The loose surface, blind corners, undulating road surface and camber make this event one of the hardest for non-locals to win. It is a fantastic achievement even for Sebastian 'I win everything ever' Loeb.
