Ott Tänak: My First Rally Car

“The Scirocco wasn’t the first car I did a rally in,” recalled the defending world champion. Asking Jari-Matti Latvala about his first rally car is not a straightforward procedure. “The chassis was good [on the Golf],” said Tänak, “but it wasn’t always easy to put it in the right place. I did Estonian Championship events in it early and it was good for starting out in the sport.”. The materials were not so good on that car or maybe I wasn’t such a good mechanic. The Golf delivered Junior class wins, but the Clio brought the two-wheel drive success that helped elevate Tänak to the world stage.
