3.3.2018 - Emil Lindholm sixth fastest in third and final winter round of Finnish Rally Championship series 2018

GRX-team Skoda Fabia R5 driver Emil Lindholm and co-driver Mikael Korhonen collect sixth highest Finnish Rally Championship points from FRC Itärally which also was third and final winter round of the series. In unofficial standings they're in fourth position, just five points behind silver position driver Marko Mänty.

In six fast-paced special stages Lindholm was in good pace but lost his mood in afternoon stages.

- We got the rally going pretty well even we had a pretty scary jump just two kilometres in the start of the first stage. However these modern R5 cars can handle long jumps and even we flew approximately 50 metres the car didn't suffer any damages. I only got scared a bit of the heavy landing, Lindholm tells.

- For some reason fourth and fifth stage wasn't good for us. In those two stages we lost around 40 seconds for the unknown reason. I've been wondering what happened in those stages because on my own opinion we had good performance, Lindholm wondered.

First three rounds with new R5 car has went pretty well for Lindholm.

- Second position in highly appreciated Arctic Lapland Rally was very big thing for me even I was just learning the car. Then three weeks later in next round my driving was much better before very unfortunate off and retirement. Now in this rally our goal was set to finishing the event and that might have been the problem because when our fellow drivers had a attack, I didn't, Lindholm analyzed.

- Now we all have to wait three months for the fourth and first gravel rally. However fourth position is a good place to continue this season in June, Lindholm reminds.

Finnish Rally Championship season 2018 series includes seven rounds so there are still four gravel events to be driven.
