Good feedback again from the FIA for Neste Rally Finland

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.
