The full 33-kilometres of Ouninpohja will be run this season, marking the stage’s return for the first time in almost eight years.

Parts of the legendary stage have run in the event in recent years, but not since 2016 has it been run in its full length.

As well as the addition of Ouninpohja, 61% of the rally route has been changed.

Several WRC stars including Jari-Matti Latvala and Teemu Suninen were at the rally launch overnight.

Kai Tarkiainen, the event’s Clerk of Course, explained how this year’s route had been formulated.

“I do honestly believe that this is an exceptional ‘all-in’ route – one of the best ever,” Tarkiainen said.

“We’ve grouped the stages in such a way that spectators can have a very easy and user-friendly experience, while sampling the very best that Rally Finland can offer.

“Sustainability and community are extremely high up on our agenda, so we have also considered this very carefully when planning our 2024 itinerary. The result is an event that benefits not only local communities but the entire global family of rallying as a whole.”

In all, 20 stages will make up the route for Rally Finland.
