Red Bull Rally Team – a perfect start in Finland

30.07.2009: 2009 World Rally Championship – Round 9, after SS 1 Neste Oil Rally Finland, July 30th to August 2nd, 2009.

2009 World Rally Championship – Round 9, after SS 1
Neste Oil Rally Finland, July 30th to August 2nd, 2009.



Fastest time for Juho Hänninen on the super stage – and tomorrow the rally proper will get under way!



A perfect start to the Neste Oil Rally Finland, the ninth round of the World Rally Championship, for the Red Bull Rally Team today:

Juho Hänninen/Mikko Markkula (FIN) – Skoda Fabia S2000 – set the fastest time over the 2.06 kilometre long super stage in 1:24.7 minutes, and will therefore start tomorrow’s opening leg as Group N leaders – when the rally proper will get under way.

Anton Alen (Fiat Grande Punto S2000), son of former world champion Markku Alen, and Janne Touhino (FIN/Peugeot 207 S2000) are tied for second place, both 1.9 seconds back.

Behind them in fourth – the world champion, Kimi Räikkönen (Fiat Grande Punto S2000), two seconds behind Hänninen.

Juho Hänninen:
“Of course I didn’t take too big a risk on the super stage. That’s why the fastest time really gives me double the pleasure. I was very satisfied with the car’s handling, everything’s perfect. This makes me optimistic for tomorrow.”

Team boss Raimund Baumschlager:
“Juho has already shown his pace, although it was just a short distance. But all this doesn’t mean anything, because the really serious part of the event won’t start until tomorrow.”

Nine stages are scheduled for tomorrow, Friday.
