Rally Finland, the ninth round of the 2019 World Rally Championship, is coming up at the beginning of August. It’ll be the championship’s first race after the season’s summer break following an extremely dust-filled Rally Sardinia. Why not prepare by watching these Toyota hatchbacks fly through the air?
Toyota factory drivers Ott Tänak and Jari-Matti Latvala were filmed recently as they undertook some high-speed gravel testing through the Finnish forest in their Yaris WRCs.
Finland is known for its fast, tree-lined stages, and there’s no shortage of them here. Did I mention there were jumps? There are lots of jumps. The cars seem to get airborne every other second, meaning lots of work for their long-travel suspension.
Rally Finland 2019 kicks off August 1st. We’ll certainly be watching.
