How Estonia has become a rallying nation

Their people have lined the WRC stages for the last two decades, now Estonia finally has been rewarded with its own round

Last weekend’s World Rally Championship event in Estonia was more than just the first event since the coronavirus gripped hold of the world.

It was also more than the 600th event to take place in WRC history. Last weekend, Estonia became the 33rd country to host a world rally, and fittingly, it was won by one if its own: Ott Tänak.

Tänak might have been the star attraction, but Estonia has always been a rally mad country, boosted by Markko Märtin’s five WRC victories for Ford in the mid 2000s.

Hear from Tänak, Märtin and many other key figures in the WRC as DirtFish takes a behind the scenes look at how the WRC arrived in Estonia in just eight weeks, and just what that means.
