Sev­eral World Rally Cham­pi­onship drivers were in­vited to the Val­tra trac­tor fac­tory in Fin­land just be­fore last week’s Jy­vaskyla-based event, where they got to race trac­tors around the firm’s test track. Kris Meeke won the event – demon­strat­ing his com­mit­ment by lift­ing a wheel on this fast left- han­der. Mean­while, 30 years on from his death, Henri Toivonen’s 1985 RAC Rally-win­ning Lan­cia Delta was driven through the Harju city stage on Rally Fin­land by his younger brother Harri (see right). Henri took fourth place on his fi­nal Rally Fin­land out­ing in an Lan­cia 037 in 1985.
