    [WRC] Neste Rally Finland 26 - 29 July 2018

    The route will be announced 6th March. The organizers have said before there will be less (but some) chicanes, and today's annoucement says the route should be more tailored to the modern WRC cars. Also it's revealed that the route will go to the Äänekoski and Laukaa areas, thus most likely having the same stages as 2017 Friday afternoon. Laukaa and Lankamaa would have a slightly lower average speed anyway.

    Rumor has it that there's no Ouninpohja this year, instead something like the Kakaristo stage from 2008/2014. In fact, no surprise considering the average speeds of that stage, 135 km/h last year even with three chicanes

    Rumors of Ruuhimäki as power stage. Would be an excellent choice. Also would mean a new shakedown stage, hopefully Saalahti or some proper stage, not Laajavuori

    Saalahti isen't very good in my opinion, not for video at least.
    Muurame was better and would be cool to see these cars at the sideways jump!

    Ruuhimäki would be a terrific choice for PS. With all the jumps the stage is pretty much a definition of what the "1000 Lakes" is all about.

    Muurame, you mean the 2010 shakedown, Rannankyläntie? It has been never driven in the actual rally though.
