    Cool WRC Finland Aug1-3 talk/results spoiler**

    After a six week break, Rally Finland heralds the return of the 2008 World Rally Championship with a bang. One of the most renowned events in the calendar, the Jyvaskyla-based event is a heady mix of flat-out straights, huge jumps that send cars airborne, and maximum commitment corners.

    Demanding an acute knowledge of the route, putting even greater emphasis on pace notes, the prolific local entries are often the stars of the show. When Finland is your home rally, it is no surprise that Scandinavia has produced some of the greatest talents in world rallying.

    Driver quotes
    Petter Solberg: “I’m looking forward to getting back out again after the break, you know. Finland is a good event, and one that we’ve gone well on in the past. It’s not an easy event, as we have also seen in previous years, but for me it’s a proper rally. Fast, flowing, blind jumps, and so many crazy fans! I hope we’ll have good pace there and can get another strong finish in the new car. The team have been working hard since Turkey and doing lots of testing, and we all feel that good steps forward have been taken.”

    Chris Atkinson: “I definitely want to get back into competition, so I’m looking forward to Finland. We’ve done a lot of testing since Turkey and the guys have learned a lot, so I hope we can make some good steps in fine-tuning the car. Finland is a rally of big risks and you have to push hard right from the start to get a good result. We’ve seen some good and close battles here in the past, and I hope we can be up there this year. It’s a great event. The terrain gives the rally a great character, and with the huge support of the fans, it’s one of my favourites. It’s definitely the rally everyone wants to win most.”

    Petter Solberg and his brother Henning were equal quickest in the shakedown for the Neste Oil Rally Finland on Thursday, the ninth round in the 2008 World Rally Championship and the first event following the summer break.

    Petter and Henning both completed the short 3.76 kilometre test, 6 kilometres north of the service park, in 2 minutes 3.6 seconds, the former opting for five runs in his Impreza WRC2008, while Henning took his Focus RS WRC07 through the test one more time.

    Citroen's Sebastien Loeb meanwhile was next up, 0.6 seconds slower in his C4 WRC, setting the same time as Gigi Galli.

    Suzuki's Toni Gardemeister and Andreas Mikkelsen rounded out the top six, both with a quickest time of 2 minutes 4.7 seconds, while Chris Atkinson and Jari-Matti Latvala were seventh and eighth.

    Urmo Aava and Matthew Wilson completed the top ten, with current championship leader and pre-event favourite Mikko Hirvonen eleventh.

    Suzuki's Per-Gunnar Andersson was the only runner to have problems and engine issues with the 'B-spec' SX4 WRC meant he ended proceedings in 16th - 3.9 seconds slower than the sister car.

    They aren't falling TOO bad in the standings... and looks like they might be coming back up to a better numerical position... but it looks like Loeb is just stomping on everyone and driving balls out...

    Their positions are ok for now, but they're losing like 20 seconds a stage to Loeb. At this rate the only realistic chance at a podium is 3rd barring something out of the ordinary.
