Juha Salo won FRC Mikkeli

27.02.2016 / Sami Kolsi

Juha Salo has won the second round of the Finnish Rally Championship. Salo fought with Jarkko Nikara till the seventh special stage but Nikara had to retire on that stage. After that Salo faced new rival from Norway as Ole Christian Veiby challenged him.

Salo was happy with perfomance.

- It went quite tight with Nikara and Veiby, but fortunately I managed to keep my pace till the end. I'm happy with this result, Salo said.
