It’s a podium finish for Johan Kristoffersson and co-driver Stig Rune Skjærmoen in Rally Finland! Just like in Rally Sweden it ended with P3 in the WRC2. “We were actually on the pace of the fastest crews towards the end, and that’s not bad for our first time in Finland!”
Taking on the high speed and blind crests of Rally Finland for the first time is a big challenge, and to finish on the podium is an even bigger achievement. Johan and co-driver Stig-Rune followed their master-plan of progress throughout the weekend and after a flawless drive with the Volkswagen Polo GTI R5, they finished 3rd.
“It’s our first time competing at Rally Finland, and we make it to the podium! That’s an achievement to be proud of! One the last stages we were on the pace of the fastest drivers, so I’m very pleased with our progress over the weekend. With more than 300 kilometers of special stages and very long days, this is a very tough event, but also a great experience that I can build on for the future and for the Swedish Championship.”
