Teemu Asunmaa, 36, and his co-driver Ville Mannisenmäki, 27, have finished second in the opening round of FRC, SM Pohjanmaa Rally. Asunmaa continues leading the championship after 4 of 7 rounds.
The rally began on Friday with two special stages. Asunmaa took the early lead and led the rally by 1,4 seconds after the first day.
Asunmaa kicked Saturday off with a third fastest time and followed up a second fastest time. On the last stage of the leg, Naarajoki 1, Asunmaa was the fastest.
-There’s a lot of loose gravel and it’s slippery, thus not a good start for us.
Going into the rally-ending leg Asunmaa was second with only 1,5 seconds to the lead. The fight for the lead became tighter when Asunmaa took 0,3 seconds off the lead by the second to last stage. Ultimately Asunmaa had to settle for second with a margin of 5,8 seconds.
-It was a decent rally from us,  we made no big mistakes. We tried for sure, but there’s no point in taking more risks when there’s so much loose gravel.
The second place keeps Asunmaa in the championship lead in FRC1, as there are still three rallies to go.
-A big thank you to our service crew, our cooperation partners, everyone supporting us on the stages and the organizers for the great rally. We’ll continue to Joensuu as the first car.
