If this was to be the final appearance on gravel for the 2017-spec monstrous World Rally Cars, then it was a worthy swansong. A true festival of speed, in the spiritual home of rallying.
Normally when conducting my photo recce for Rally Finland I’m constantly on the lookout for locations offering the most dramatic action. Not so this year.
I went in search of fall colors, thinking that running the rally in October would provide a once in a lifetime opportunity. I wasn’t disappointed, especially when fall met action on some choice locations.
See for yourself the results of one of them most spectacular WRC events I have ever photographed.
