And it's funny when you look back now at footage of him from 1978-1979 for example, he is like a completely different man to a few years before, like he suddenly became 15 years younger. And in the late 70s he was clearly the best rally driver in the world in my opinion. I'm sure that decision also played a big role in the success in the 80s that was to follow and the amazing longevity of his career, factory rally driver until 50. The funny thing is, he looked younger in 1984 at 42 than he did in 1974 at 32.

    I was spectating with him in the same corner in a Finnish Championship event in 2002. I think he was there mainly to see his friend Timo Salonen who was in a Group N car warming up for his 50 year celebration Rally Finland later that year. Anyway, people were half jokingly asking if Hannu would also do a 60 year celebration event that same year, which Hannu politely declined. The thing is though, Hannu at 60 looked younger than most other Finnish rally greats have looked at 50. And probably could have also given a good run for the money on the stages.

    If you want to watch my ugly old grumpy face, take a look at Meekes´off at SS13. I´m kind of snubbling trying to push the car, which at that moment moved backwards. Kind of funny stuff. But at least I feel like moviestar. I wear a red winther hat.

    Btw my son was only one catching it on video. He is standing to the left waving Meeke to move on.

    20 years ago today one of the most famous moments in Norwegian rally history happened to me at Rally Finnskog, after oil problems the only solution was an extra oil supply tied to the roof! And it worked - we won!

    I'd change it to "thought I'd grab a few drinks before Latvala's drivers' title"
