Rally Finland


A Brief History Of Rally Finland

The Neste Oil Rally Finland formerly known as 1000 Lakes Rally, is a rally event driven in the Jyväskylä area in Central Finland. It is the biggest annually organised public event in the Nordic countries, gathering over 500,000 spectators every year.

The rally has been held since 1951, first as a national competition and since the introduction of the World Rally Championship in 1973, as Finland's WRC event. It is known as the "Gravel Grand Prix", since it is the highest-speed rally in the championship. The most famous special stage is Ouninpohja, with its spectacular high speed jumps.
