RALLY LEGEND A FULL 2015
Rally France winners Latvala/Anttila delight at “Woodstock on Wheels”.
12 October 2015
The winners of the most recent FIA World Rally Championship event, Jari-Matti Latvala and his co-driver Miika Anttila (FIN/FIN), thrilled tens of thousands of fans at the 2015 Rallylegend as they pulled off spectacular tricks on historic stage routes around San Marino (SM). In addition to Latvala’s 318 hp Volkswagen Polo R WRC, more than 170 other cars were in the starting line-up, including numerous legendary rally cars from the 1960s to the 1980s. It’s not without reason that the Rallylegend is also known as “Woodstock on Wheels” among the fans. “The Rallylegend is a very special event,” said Latvala. “Rally fans can experience rallying history up close and personal here, and are treated to a unique line-up of stars and vehicles.” Former world rally champions Juha Kankkunen (FIN) and Markku Alén (FIN) also took part. While former Formula 1 driver Érik Comas (F) won the classic standings, Latvala and Anttila head straight from San Marino to prepare for the penultimate WRC event of the current season, the Rally Spain (22-25 October).
2015 Lausitz Rally
Latvala eagerly awaits start in the legendary Audi quattro
After his start at the penultimate event of the FIA World Rally Championship season at the Rally Spain (22-25 October), Jari-Matti Latvala (FIN) will head straight to his next event. From 29 to 31 October, the championship runner-up will compete in the 18th edition of the International Lausitz Rally (D). Latvala will take to the track in the legendary Audi A2 quattro. “I am really looking forward to the Lausitz Rally already,” said Latvala. “The Audi quattro gives rally fans real goosebumps because it was as spectacular as it was successful in the 1980s. Sitting behind the wheel is a real pleasure.” The car belongs to Latvala, was built to be used in classic rallies and conforms to the Group B specification. A total of 18 special stages with around 180 timed kilometres almost exclusively on gravel are on the itinerary for the Lausitz Rally.
