Plenty of marvelous flying machines, lots of supermen in the coolest sports uniforms, crowds of admiring people… The sparkling snow dust is flying from the wheels, the polar sun is shining brightly, January snowstorm is sweeping…All of this is the Arctic Lapland Rally!
In different years the competition was won by Hannu Mikkola, Ari Vatanen and other Finnish riders, who later became world champions. Also pilots of Formula-1 (current and former) – Kimi Raikkonen, Mika Hakkinen, Mika Salo and JJ Lehto – took part in the Arctic Lapland Rally.
This great winter event promises to be very exciting. It annually gathers a lot of viewers from around the world. Soon (25 Jan, 2018) it will start in Rovaniemi (the homeland of Joulupukki – Finnish Santa Claus). And the main racing actions will unfold near picturesque towns of Rovaniemi and Kemijärvi. The fans of winter extreme, you’re welcome to the real crazy Arctic adventure! January 27 – last day of competitions.
