Hokkanen wants to enjoy ERC Rally Liepaja just like the fans
Miika Hokkanen is hoping to enjoy Rally Liepāja just as much as the thousands of fans who will visit the Latvian stages for the third event of the 2019 FIA European Rally Championship season.
Hokkanen scored an ERC3 Junior podium when Rally Liepāja last ran in autumn 2018. But with the event moving forward to May for 2019, the Finn wants to join spectators in truly savouring the high-speed gravel contest.
“Rally Liepāja is a nice event with very beautiful stages,” said the former Finnish 2WD champion. “I did the rally last year in autumn and this year it will be in spring so it’s even better for the spectators because the weather may be warmer.
“Our first event of the season didn’t go well after two punctures so hopefully we can make it better this time. We will make a one-day test with Mavisa Sport and let’s see if we can find a good set-up for the race.”
Rally Liepāja takes place from 24-26 May on stages around the cities of Talsi and Liepāja.
