Rally Finland the 1000 Lakes Rally Jyväskylän Suurajot Jyväskylä Grand
For the 1980 season, the 1000 Lakes Rally lost its status as a world
championship event for manufacturers, running for the first and last time
only as a world drivers' championship event. The rally saw the return of
the short Harju asphalt stage held in the center of Jyväskylä. Although
the rally became the first in the world to issue action and safety
instructions in 1980, several serious accidents marred the event in the
early 1980s. At the 1981 rally, Austrian driver Franz Wittmann lost control
of his Audi Quattro after the finish line of the fourth stage and crashed
into five end-of-stage officials. Raul Falin, the chairman of
AKK-Motorsport, died of his injuries soon after reaching the hospital. In
1983, Pekka Mällinen slid off the road on a fast curve, rolled twice and
crashed into a thick pine tree. The accident killed his co-driver Reijo
Nygren. At the 1984 rally, British driver Julian Roderick lost control of
his car on a popular spectator area in the Humalamäki jumpers. He rolled
his car several times and hit a wall of people who had been spectating in a
forbidden area. Along with Roderick and his co-driver, nine spectators
suffered non-critical injuries.

Although the 1000 Lakes continued to be dominated by Nordic drivers, David
Richards became the third British co-driver to celebrate the win in 1981.
In 1982, the pre-rally scrutineering was moved to the newly built
Jyväskylän jäähalli (Jyväskylä Ice Hall). All over 150 contestants
passed the inspection. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden arrived to follow the
event and a record 450 reporters were present. Audi took a one-two with its
factory drivers Hannu Mikkola and Stig Blomqvist. The 1983 rally featured a
field of 180 cars, over a hundred of which failed to make it to the finish.
Mikkola edged out Blomqvist to extend the event record to a still-standing
seven wins. Mikkola's time on the 24.5-kilometre Ouninpohja stage was
11:56; 52 seconds faster than his
time just four years ago. In 1984, over half a million spectators were
expected and about 5,000 marshals were appointed. Vatanen won the event and
Peugeot continued their success in the last two Group B years, as Timo
Salonen drove to victory in 1985 and 1986.
The 1985 event marked the first time the drivers' world championship had
been decided in Finland; Salonen captured the title with three rallies to
go.In 1986, the route was modified to bring the average speeds closer to
the FISA limit of 110 km/h. The top drivers exceeded the limit almost
regularly, but FISA had given the organizers a 10 percent flexibility.
Combined with their dislike for the slower Group A cars, drivers were
highly critical of the organizers for artificially slowing the rally in
1987. A record 214 drivers signed up for the 1988 event and 200 were
qualified to start by the organizers. Albert II, Prince of Monaco arrived
to follow the event and was scheduled to drive a few stages in an ex-Alén
Lancia. In one of the tightest duels in the event's history, Toyota's Juha
Kankkunen led Lancia's Markku Alén by just two seconds after 33 of the 39
stages. Kankkunen's engine failed on the next stage, and Alén became the
first driver to win the same WRC round six times. As a taste of what was to
come, only two Finnish drivers made it into top ten. In 1989, Mikael
Ericsson of Sweden drove to victory as the first non-Finn in 18 years

Rally Crashes happened in 2012 and 2013 . Car accidents because of drifts .
The production-based cars with 1.6 L direct injection turbo engine and four-wheel drive are built to
World Rally Car regulations for racing across tarmac, gravel and snow. The
power output is limited to around 300 bhp (225 kW). Current cars in the
championship include the Citroën DS3 WRC, Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Mini WRC.
The WRC was formerly held for Group A and Group B rallycars. However, due
to the increasing power, lack of reliability and a series of fatal
accidents on the 1986 season, Group B was permanently banned. Later, in
1997, the Group A cars evolved into the WRC car spec, to ease the
development of new cars and bring new makes to the competition. In 2011,
new rules were introduced to encourage more manufacturers (and privateers)
to take part, because the recent economic downturn had prompted several
manufacturers to leave the championship.
Cars in the Production Car World Rally Championship are limited to
production-based cars homologated under Group N rules. Cars in the Super
2000 World Rally Championship are homologated under Super 2000 rules. Most
cars in the Junior World Rally Championship are homologated under Super
1600 rules, but Group N and selected Group A cars can also contest the
Starting in 2013,a new category of rally cars known as Group R were
introdued as a replacement to the Group A and Group N rally categories,
with cars classified under one of six categories based on their engine
capacity and type, wheelbase, and drivetrain. As a result no cars will be
homologated under Group A and Group N regulations and instead will be
reclassified under Group R. Parallel to this, the Super 2000 and Production
Car World Championships were restructured; Super 2000 and Group N cars were
merged into a single championship known as World Rally Championship-2
alongside R4 and R5 cars, whilst the Production Car World Championship was
completely reimagined as the World Rally Championship-3 for two-wheel drive
cars complying with R1, R2 and R3 regulations.
WRC Teams and Drivers
20 different manufacturers have won a World Rally Championship event,
and a further ten have finished on the podium.
Suzuki and Subaru pulled out of the WRC at the end of the 2008
championship, both citing the economic downturn then affecting the
automotive industry for their withdrawal. Mini and Ford both pulled out of
the WRC at the end of the 2012 championship, due to a similar economic
downturn affecting the European market.
A typical WRC team will consist of about 40 people on the events, with a
further 60--100 at the team base.
Manufacturers and manufacturer-backed teams usually have two or three
drivers participating in each rally who are eligible to score points. The
total number of crews (driver and his co-driver) in the rallies varied from
47 (Monte Carlo and Mexico) to 108 (Great Britain) during the 2007
In 2012, The Ford World Rally Team and The Mini WRC Team both announced
their departure from the World Rally Championships for the 2013 season.
Volkswagen and Hyundai will make their return to the championship in 2013
and 2014, respectively.Best of Crash Rallye HD Best of Crash Rallye HD Best
