Watch: Latvala on his WRC future and building classics

Jari-Matti Latvala has been keeping busy with old Toyotas while waiting to drive a modern one again

Jari-Matti Latvala is the World Rally Championship’s most experienced driver, but finds himself in an unusual position in 2020.

Having lost his spot in Toyota’s full-time line-up, he secured a deal for a partial program in a Yaris only for mechanical problems to spoil his first event of the year in Sweden.

Toyota team boss Tommi Mäkinen immediately promised another rally as recompense, but the coronavirus situation means Latvala’s year is now paused just like everyone else’s.

He’s keeping himself busy, though.

In this video interview from Latvala’s base in Finland, he tells us about keeping busy preparing historic Toyota rally cars and why he’s certain his WRC career is far from over.
