The first rally print of the year will be run on the upcoming Sunday in Lahti, Villähteen Hokkara.
For the third time, the competition in Hokkara is named Top Building Rallisprint this year. The competition is also the regional competition for Southeast Finland. The organizing club Lahti UA will spend its 55th birthday this year, which is also celebrated with 93 entries in the competition.
There were 14 entries for the organizing club. There are also plenty of nearby drivers, but the farthest ones arrive from Ostrobothnia. Winter packs started at the perfect time, and the track is for the drivers in the primeval state, as long as the landscape is illuminated.
