World champion Kalle Rovanperä was in imperious form less than a fortnight ago in Estonia, taking his third victory on the event and extending his World Rally Championship lead to a whopping 55 points.
But Rovanperä’s never won at home, so can he succeed on Rally Finland this week? Or will he allow Ott Tänak to set the pace, content to consolidate that big points advantage?
Will Thierry Neuville be inspired by his own confidence-boosting performance in Estonia to challenge for what might have been considered an unlikely Finland victory? Or will his Hyundai team-mates Esapekka Lappi and Teemu Suninen shine on home ground?
What impact could wet weather have? Could Rally Finland become more akin to Rally GB?
Those are among the questions debated by Colin Clark, David Evans and George Donaldson on this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod as the team looks ahead to one of the most anticipated rallies of the season.
The latest round of the European Rally Championship and last weekend’s Rallycross Fest at DirtFish Rally School are also up for discussion.
