McKlein gallery: The flying Finns – 10 of the very best at home

Finland is famous for producing World Rally Champions, but who's the best of an excellent bunch?


If you want to win, hire a Finn. Right? Six of the top 10 event and stage winners in WRC history hail from Finland, as do the three youngest rally winners. And if it wasn’t for two fellas called Sébastien, Finland would have more WRC wins than any other nation as well.

Eight of the 10 fastest rallies in the WRC stats happened in the country, too. It really is a rally Mecca.

As part of our Finland week, take a look through the 10 best Finns to compete at home – celebrated with ace photographer Colin McMaster’s pick of the McKlein archive
