I've run into a few folks running in the States and Canada that said they would be attending Rally Finland this year, but I can't remember who all, We plan to be at the Superspecial Thurs night, then stages 5/7 on Friday.
Anyone with prior knowledge of Helsinki, Jyvaskyla (or even Stockhom)
might have some suggestions here too eh?

Yup - we're meeting them there.
I know there were some Western Canadians going too.

Hmmm, I wonder if you meant us?

Leanne and I will both be in Finland for the rally, and staying at a cousin's place near Jyvaskyla for each of the nights of the rally (once they've kicked me out of course).

We'd love to meet up with other N.Americans if you guys will be there.

Have you already got your rally passes or will you be getting them from a Neste stop once there?

Take care guys,
Eric + Leanne

Yes - I believe so (I was w/ Joan Hoskinson at Rocky in her Suby)
- We are (w/ 2 other US rally couples) doing the Per Carlsson tour deal, so we should be all set w/tickets.
We are staying in Himos
plan is:
Thurs Spuperspecial
Fri stages 5/7
Sat Stages 11/14 Ouninpohja !!!!! and stage 17
Sun. stage 19

You've been before?!
Any insider info ?

Well, been to Finland a few times, but never to the rally. So no real insider tips there.

We're not going with a tour group, we'll be getting the all access passes and finding our way around (maybe with some help from relatives). But it sounds like your itinerary will be a blast :) We've yet to finalize exactly what ours will look like.

Maybe we should say hi at the superspecial!

So how was it? How was the tour plan thing. How was the access pass thing? The video coverage looked awesome as always.

Fantastic - We went w/ Per Carlsson's rallytravels tour
(Per being an ex WRC codriver had a proven "movement plan".
150 Swedes, 70 German/Austrians, 2 Brits and the 6 of us.
Even some of the Swedes who had been there before said it was well worth paying for the tour to get in-out of the stages as we did.

Stage 17 finished 50 yards from our Cabin!

I would highly recomend this tour group, and I will go again.

- btw Thanks to Christian Edstrom's recommendation we joined the tour in Stockholm and took a cruise ship to Helsinki - The Swedish Archipelago is beautiful, and the city of Stockholm is great, we spent 3 days there and with it had been 7.
