Latvala wins classic car rally
At the wheel of his father's Ford
Ford World Rally Team driver Jari-Matti Latvala took victory at the Lahti Historic Rally event held in his native Finland last weekend.

However, on this occasion Latvala stepped out of his usual Ford Focus RS WRC and took the controls
of his father Jari's car, a classic two-wheel drive Mk 2 Ford Escort RS 1800.

The event counted a dozen stages split over two days with 135 kilometres of timed runs. Despite dealing with mechanical issues right from the outset, he nonetheless claimed victory with over a minute's lead on his nearest competitor.

"I lost second and third gears on the opening stage," reported Latvala, who was not overly bothered by the double issue: "Finnish roads are so fast I was able to use first for the junctions and fourth and fifth everywhere else, so I didn't lose so much time."

It was his second consecutive win following that obtained a week earlier at the World Rally Championship round held on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Conditions were very different, but the satisfaction was the same.

"It was great fun and completely different to the pressures of competing in the WRC," Latvala said.

"Hopefully I will be able to drive some more rallies in the car," he added.
