Good feedback again from the FIA for Neste Rally Finland

Press release 8.9.2016 by AKK Sports Ltd

The reputation of Neste Rally Finland, driven 28 - 31 July 2016, as the best organised WRC rally in the world was this year again backed-up by the FIA report. The delegates of the international governing body of motorsport gave the Finnish round of the FIA World Rally Championship excellent marks for e.g. the event setting, safety and professional conduct of the event personnel. A network of 4 000 volunteers and members of various clubs and organisations again had an active role in the making and smooth running of the event together with rally organizer AKK Sports.

All the FIA World Rally Championship events are evaluated on site by the FIA delegates, who monitor the events themselves, the stewards, safety, media as well as the medical and competition-related technical performances. The hefty report that consists of six separate evaluations is the FIA’s official feedback on the event and a tool with which the organisers themselves can also evaluate their event and make improvements. This year’s report found very little if anything to fault, and the different sectors of Neste Rally Finland scored mainly good and excellent marks.

Once again, the ideal location of the Jyväskylä Paviljonki Rally HQ and service park in the heart of the city, as well as the HQ’s premises, space solutions and services received praise this years’ report too. The challenging, high-speed, crowd-pleasing special stages, the wide range of additional programming as well as the work of the special stage, service park, safety, media and medical staff all raked in top marks. The safety of the rally for example received a special distinction from the FIA.

“This report is a wonderful sign of appreciation from the FIA, and hopefully it is also a testament to the enormous amount of work we all have once again put in together for Neste Rally Finland. Based on the overall evaluation, we can conclude that the Finnish round of the FIA World Rally Championship remains, not only as a first-class rally, but a first-class reference point for the other WRC rounds. We wish to continue doing as good a job next year and provide the teams, competitors, media, our partners and of course the fans with an even more pleasant Neste Rally Finland experience in 2017”, says the Promoter of the rally Jani Backman.
