GP Week : Issue 93
Not since the '70s had a driver in his mid- 20s won this event, though in the '60s the still indefatigable Simo Lampinen had been winning when he was only 20. Latvala has no limit to his energies -- he left Jyvaskyla to go straight to test a rally Ford of another kind, an Escort BDA, which he is to drive in next week's FIA Historic championship rally in Finland. M-Sport chief Malcolm Wilson said this was a perfect result for Ford, but it was one which inevitably the Ford team will need to cherish, with the prospect of three of the remaining five rounds of the championship to be run on asphalt. Next rally, in three weeks time, is Rallye Deutschland, on which Citroen has never been beaten. Amidst the celebrations in the Paviljonki stadium, there was the grim reality that BP Ford's hopes of reining in Citroen Total's championship points haul had been dashed, the French company having extended its lead by a further 12 points. Sebastien Loeb continues to lead the Drivers' category ahead of his new teammate Sebastien Ogier, while Jari-Matti has risen up to third following his well- earned win. WRC FINLAND >> This week sees another major FIA championship rally in Finland, the Lahti Historic Rally, on which Jari-Matti Latvala hopes to win again with his Escort BDA. The rally starts at 1800 (Finnish time) Thursday and finishes at 1945 on Saturday evening. This rally holds the record of being run as the longest uninterrupted top FIA championship event (every year since 1959) and its traditions are set to continue! 43
