It´s over. It´s done. It´s in the books.
Rally Sweden 2014 has crossed the finish line.
When all numbers were on the board it was Jari-Matti Latvala that came away with his third Rally Sweden win after a cool, controlled and truly impressive driving all trough the rally. Latvala was closest followed by Andreas Mikkelsen, aka ´The handsome one´, who gets his first podium position in WRC. In third place we have a second fast flying Norwegian, Mads Ostberg, who pushed his fellow compatriot all the way to the finish line.
Day 3 started out as a race between Latvala and Mikkelsen for the top spot, but after the latter one had a little too much close contact with the snow Latvala got a comfortable time difference down to second place and were able to focus on not making any big mistakes during the final stages.
In WRC 2 Day 3 seemed to be an easy ride for Al Rahji but it aint over until the fat lady sings.
After being forced to stop on the road in the middle of the day, both Ketomaa and Kruuda suddenly were in the race for the title. When Al Rahji once again got into problems he suddenly found himself out of the race for the win and the last stage came to be an extremely close and thrilling battle between Ketomaa ond Kruuda.
With just a few seconds separating them in the end it was Kruuda who finally came out on top, securing his first ever win in WRC2.
It´s been a really interesting days of three with high intense racing, incredible fans and a lot of fun.
Now we´re already looking forward to next year; it really can´t come around early enough.
Thanks for your support and we´ll see you back here in 2015.
