Finland has long been a haven of rallying, going back long before Rauno Aaltonen and Timo Makinen were hired by Stuart Turner in the 1960s for the BMC team. Over 20 years ago I read in a book called "Of Finnish Ways" that one in ten Finns possesses a motorsports license.

So rallying isn't a new phenomenon in Finland like it seems to be here in the U.S. (though I have been following it here for over 30 years), rather it is a way of life and has been for over 50 years.

As to the "Older" cars you see on the entry lists... they are better prepared than most of the top running Group 2 and Group 5 cars running in SCCA ProRally. Even those at the back of the pack look as though they were built in a professional race shop.
