Volkswagen's Jari-Matti Latvala has taken his fifth victory in the Lahti Historic Rally repeating his successes from 2014, 2013, 2010 and 2009.

Latvala, who won Rally Finland last weekend, the eighth round in the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship, was at the wheel of his own Audi Quattro, eventually triumphing by over 3.5 minutes.

Mikko Hirvonen, who retired from the WRC at the end of last year, was second in his Ford Escort RS, 31.5s up on Veli-Matti Saarelainen's Opel Ascona 400.
