In about 45 minutes the 2014 Neste Oil Rally Helsinki Battle will begin on the streets of, well, Helsinki. Featuring a host of WRC legends on one side and equally impressive line-up of current rally stars, this show promises to be a fantastic intro into the next week’s Rally Finland. According to the official schedule, the show begins at 14.00 CEST with a very special treat. Four time World Champion, Juha Kannkkunen, will take one of the most memorable rally cars for a spin around Helsinki; Audi S1 Quattro will be in action once again in the hands of a guy who once said “WRC is for boys, group B was for men.”
Comparing current cars to group B beasts of the past, KKK said: “The cars differ like night and day. I would no longer dare to drive between trees in a Group B car. They go fast on a straight road, but otherwise they are difficult to handle”.
The best thing about the battle in Helsinki is the live coverage via online stream, all you need to do is slap this link below! Why? Because Jari-Matti Latvala, Sebastien Ogier, Markku Alen, Tommi Makinen, Juha Kankkunen, Marcus Grönholm, Mikko Hirvonen, Thierry Neuville, Mads Ostberg and Juho Hanninen demand your presence.
