Rally Finland started Thursday the 28th of July, with a Super Special Stage in the middle of the rally town, Jyväskylä. Then on Friday, they headed for the weekend action in the Finnish woods. They were also driving through the famous stages Surkee and Ouninpohja with many big jumps.
Rally Finland are known for the huge jumps and blind crest, and the rally cars got incredible speed. The stages was wide and smooth with hard base and other stages was really technical and narrow with soft surfaces. The common for the 24 stages of the rally was the famous jumps and the blind crest.
Aasen and Engan did everything to get back into the speed they had built up in the first part of the season and the confidence took some time to get back after their crash in Poland earlier this summer. But they managed to complete their goal for the weekend, and that was to set some top level stages and to finish with a good result.
Marius Aasen said: "We got everything in Finland; really good fun in the car, jumps and incredible speed. We also got some big challenges when we broke the drive shaft and had to drive like rear wheel car at three stages. We improved our pace over the weekend and never made any mistakes and I was really having a nice enjoyable event. We made a few changes with the car and everything worked pretty well during the event."
