Rally Estonia got its World Rally Championship debut to perfection. Levered into the 2020 WRC calendar at the very last minute, the long-time candidate event knocked the rally weekend out of the park.
The rally’s success last year did enough to secure its slot on the calendar for a further two years. With a forward-thinking team planning Rally Estonia, their hard work is sure to improve its package even more.
It really was a perfect weekend for Estonia last September as home heroes Ott Tanak and Martin Jarveoja claimed their first win for Hyundai.
Previously considered as a warm-up for Rally Finland, the event proved it was much more than a taster of the 1000 lakes. Estonia’s rapid gravel stages were littered with jumps and its soft surface created demanding ruts the kept crews on their toes throughout the weekend.
Securing a slot in the middle of summer this year, Rally Estonia will be another celebration of world rallying’s current spectacle that cannot be matched anywhere else.
