Lat­vala plans Fin­nish rally out­ing in GT-4

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Jari-matti Lat­vala will drive his Toy­ota Cel­ica GT-4 at the Au­to­pritti Rally in Fin­land next Satur­day.

The Toy­ota Ga­zoo Rac­ing man will be co-driven in his own ex-works Cel­ica by his team-mate from last year Juho Han­ni­nen.

“It’s nice to go and drive a win­ter rally,” Lat­vala told

MN. “I think it will be some fun to have Juho co-driv­ing as well. It’s also good prac­tice for me to be driv­ing in these con­di­tions be­fore we go to Rally Swe­den the fol­low­ing week. This event is a his­toric one in Mikkeli, close to my home area in Fin­land – but the place is ac­tu­ally most fa­mous now be­cause they got two po­lar bears in the zoo!”

Lat­vala last drove the Toy­ota GT-4 to sec­ond place at the Rally Ronde Pre­alpi Mas­ter Show in Italy last month.

Lo­cal rally will be good prepa­ra­tion
