Retrospective: Hannu Mikkola’s most unforgettable rally – 1000 Lakes Rally 1983

As the rallying world mourns the death of Hannu Mikkola, we look back to when he wrote an article on his ‘most unforgettable’ rally, the 1983 1000 Lakes Rally.

I suppose I have three favourite events: the 1000 Lakes in Finland, the RAC in Great Britain and the Safari in Kenya.  These three I like very much for different reasons.

The 1000 Lakes was always the fastest. You have to be really quick and accurate, fast and brave to drive at the required speed over those roads. The 1983 1000 Lakes Rally was significant not only because of what happened on that event, but because of the circumstances in my career.
