Masterful Tänak takes charge in Arctic’s winter wonderland

Ott Tänak threw down the gauntlet in Lapland’s frozen forests by winning the opening two speed tests to build a dominant lead at Arctic Rally Finland Powered by CapitalBox on Friday night. Tänak was one of the few frontrunners to gamble on just one spare tyre for the pair of stages. It was a challenging and typical rollercoaster Finland stage, very technical.”. Top three times on both stages put the Irishman ahead of the eager 20-year-old Rovanperä. The Finn’s first stage split times were quicker than Tänak, but a mistake after the midpoint slowed his progress. Ott Tänak set the fastest time in shakedown at Arctic Rally Finland Powered by CapitalBox on Thursday morning. The final stage runs in darkness and the six tests add up to 144.04km of action.
