Samuli Vuorisalo and Ville Hautamäki in the lead in the two-wheel drive classes

24.01.2014 /

sm4_hautamaki.jpg - pienennetty Samuli Vuorisalo, last year´s FRC silver medalist, was in the lead in SM(FRC)3 after day one. When Joonas Lindroos, who was one of the favourites, had to retire due to a technical problem, and Joonas Tokee ended up in a jam on SS4 and went off due to the dusting snow, the fight for the lead was between Vuorisalo and Henri Haapamäki. Vuorisalo held his ground, and Haapamäki finished the day 17 seconds behind him. Matias Kauppinen got up to third with half a minute gap to the lead.
In SM(FRC)4, Ville Hautamäki started the rally as the favourite and he did not disappoint. Hautamäki, who had taken a year´s break because of the birth of his first daughter, kept the lead from the first stage until the end of the day. Tuomo Hassinen is second in the class with over a minute gap to Hautamäki. Sami Korvola is third but already 2.45 behind the lead.
The two-wheel class drivers told that the dusting snow had been a problem and that the ruts at the braking points certainly hadn´t made it any easier. The rally continues on Saturday morning.
