Teemu Asunmaa, 35, along with his co-driver Ville Mannisenmäki, 27, are running fifth in the WRC Secto Rally Finland held in Jyväskylä after three days. Asunmaa’s Secto Rally Finland has been an exceptionally tough event. The rally continues with four more special stages on Sunday.

The rally began on Thursday with the Harju super special stage that attracted record crowds. On Friday the rally continued with the morning loop’s five special stages that were eventually cut down to just four after SS5 – Lankamaa 2 was cancelled due to safety concerns. By the Friday’s day service Asunmaa was running seventh in WRC2.

-This is not what I’m used to. It feels like someone else is driving the car, and we need to get back to the saddle.
Saturday’s final leg consisted of two special stages driven twice through. Two 7th fastest, an 8th and a 10th fastest times respectively put Asunmaa eight in category heading to Saturday.

-It’s been a bad day overall. We tried to get a fresh look at every stage to start from zero and at times it felt good, but the times still weren’t there. We’ll have to figure out where the problem is, get a good nights sleep and have another go tomorrow.

Saturday morning started in rainy conditions. Morning’s leg consisted of four special stages, and Asunmaa was eight fastest in all four elevating him to seventh in WRC2.

-I don’t have full trust in my driving. I’m lifting in places where there’s no need to. We’ll have another go at it in the afternoon, but we’re not driving for positions anymore but rather racking up the kilometres and driving through the spectacular stages.

On the second leg of Saturday Asunmaa was eight, sixth and twice seventh fastest on the drying stages. Benefiting from the misfortune of his fellow competitors, Asunmaa arrived to the night service in Jyväskylä fifth in WRC2.

-It’s been quite a rough day overall. The pace really isn’t getting better, but we drove safely through and had a look at the beautiful stages.

Asunmaa has his eyes set on the finish line on the closing day of Sunday.

-We’ll try to adjust the setup of the car for tomorrow and proceed to drive the stages cleanly through.

WRC Secto Rally Finland ends on 7th of August. Sunday consists of four special stages and 44,94 special stage kilometres.
