  • Just off E63 between Tampere and Jyvaskyla in south central Finland is a road regarded as the WRC World Rally Championship’s ‘biggest test of bravery and commitment’. Ouninpohja runs 33km from west of Ouninpohja town via Kakaristo – see map - over more than 75 jumps with virtually no straights. Current champion Sebastien Ogier holds the stage record at an average 130.75kmh. Spectators measure the length of the jumps from the biggest - 6km from the start, next to the ‘yellow house’ (above) – with the longest held by Markko Martin in 2003 at 57m (187ft). Due to safety fears, Ouninpohja has been on and off the schedule since 2004 but returned in 2012 and will be star attraction on Saturday during this weekend’s WRC Neste Oil Rally Finland.
