If you see Taisto tell him Hi! from the two Vanlandinghams who bought him beer way back in the late 80s in Shelton, WA. We had some good laughs about what he would have done to the entire field if he had a good SAAB 850cc two stroke!!!
In the staccato flat delivery he said: No problem. beat everyone bad!

Quite a character.
Congratulations.

And same to Boyce.

Thanks for posting, good to see some recognition for the guys even if it was some time ago.
Young 'un think that 2 years ago is a long time, nice to see some remember a bit longer.

Doug:

No recognition for co-drivers? (aka navigators back then) You would have been at the top of the list!!!

Hi Doug! Many thanks for posting the picture... Lynn and I had dinner with Taisto a few weeks before the ceremony and unfortunately were away cruising the Caribbean during the event and couldn't join in on the fun. Best regards to all "oldtimers"...we're still watching! :D
