Finland may get a Moto GP race 2018, in the new Kymi Ring (being build near where my aunt and cousins live).

WRC Rally Finland is on, at best only tens of kilometers away from me, closer than any world championship event.

We'll see if Latvala can continue his series of two wins in home rally...

Kris Meeke becomes the first Brit ever to win Rally Finland.
Latvala was second.

Niko Kari gets to drive GP3 in Spa. Until now he's been in F3 with mediocre success, after last year winning North European (SMP) F4 series.

World Rally Championship is in shock as Volkswagen, dominant champion of this and last three seasons, is pulling out of the series.
It is unclear what happens to their drivers, four-time champion Ogier and this year's only Finn Latvala.

Bad and good day for Finland.

F1 went real bad.
Moto GP was bit of both: Kallio got first time for six years to drive in the top series, but retired.

The good news comes from Japan: Heikki Kovalainen and his teammate Kohei Hirate won last race of Super GT (GT500) series and with that whole championship!

He is the first Finnish winner of the series (and possibly first driver who has won a race in that series and F1).

At least one championship to Finland this year.

WRC season is over and it was grim for Finland. Best Finn was Latvala as 6th and that's worst for us since 2003; counting further positions worse than that and thus worst during modern WRC era (since 1997). This seems to in fact have been the worst ever season for Finland in rally world championship.

This 13th consecutive rally world championship by French driver puts France even with Finland at 14 total. (All other countries combined: 12)

Only minor light in darkness is that Esapekka Lappi won the supporting WRC-2 class.

Good news of the day is that Niko Kari drives GP3 next year. It's not actually certain in what team, but coming from Red Bull's Helmut Marko we can take this for a fact.

Looks like Toyota is about to have all-Finnish WRC team next year.
Team manager multiple world champion Tommi Mäkinen gets Latvala, Lappi and Hänninen as drivers.
Should be a much better rally year for Finland than this disaster.

WRC season 2017 begins tragically: Hänninen retires in Monte Carlo at stage 4.
Oh, and also a spectator died.
