Ogier, Latvala sign up for Rally Helsinki Battle

Sebastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala to join WRC stars past and present for a spectacular 'city rally' in Helsinki in the build-up to this year's Rally Finland.
Volkswagen has confirmed that Sebastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala will both take part in the 'Rally Helsinki Battle' on Saturday July 26, a prelude to this year's Rally Finland, the eighth round in the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship.

The event will see drivers compete, as the name suggests, in the heart of Helsinki - Finland's capital city - and it will feature not only current WRC drivers, but also a number of 'legends', such as Juha Kankkunen, Tommi Makinen, Marcus Gronholm and Markku Alen.

“What better way to attract a wider audience to this sport than with a rallying event in the heart of the capital?” said Volkswagen Motorsport director, Jost Capito.

“We liked the organisers' concept straight away. We're looking forward to the 'Helsinki Battle' because the rally stars will provide the fans with a great show.”
