How Rovanpera has reignited Finland's rallying obsession

Finland may have a small population, but it has long enjoyed rallying success. Now that the nation has a new star to cheer in the form of Kalle Rovanpera, interest in the discipline is surging once again.

Rally cars launching over jumps while blasting through Finnish forest roads is for many the iconic image that the World Rally Championship conjures, such is the legend created by Rally Finland.

Finland and rallying go hand in hand. It’s a relationship that has blossomed since the inaugural event in 1951. The event’s current “more than a rally” tagline is an apt one, as rallying is a national obsession that's now entering a new chapter thanks to the nation’s latest superstar, Kalle Rovanpera.
