Okay, so I've watched a lot of rally clips the last couple of days. Why? Because corona got me stuck in the youtube universe watching random shit. I noticed A LOT of the clips are Finnish. How big of a deal is rally in Finland really?

it's a very big deal all the men in finland get together on weekends, dress off in the sauna, spank each other with birch twigs and then drive around with modified cars in the woods

As a suvakkihuora Hesalainen I do not practice the car part, but I do enjoy sauna and some spanking with birch twigs.

The popularity has fallen off, it's not as mainstream anymore but success has always driven interest in Finnish sports, and Finland hasn't had any championship drivers in rally for a bit.

But Latvala is great driver.
2020-03-29 11:04
Not a champion great. Rovanperä will be one for sure at some point.

But he was a beast in Volkswagen finishing 2/3.
2020-03-29 12:43
Yeah when there is no success the interest drops, but it's still pretty big. My cousin pursued a career in rally but as a hobby it can be massively expensive, he then decided to become a mechanic. Edit: typ0

2020-03-29 11:31
Very big. We've got a lot of gravel roads.

how does it feel to support olympiakos when you could have gone with pao? /discuss
2020-03-29 11:42
lmao who is pao? havent heard of them in years
2020-03-29 19:06
who are they? most famous greek team
2020-03-29 21:18
jokes on you
2020-03-29 21:19
how so? i'm not pao just acknowledging facts
2020-03-29 21:20
Panathinaikos is not the most famous greek team lol they have 20 league titles, absolutely nothing in European tournaments. Oly has 44 league titles and has made a lot of great performances in European football. Panathinaikos will never be the most famous greek team. They're only popular because they are our rivals.
2020-03-29 23:49
yeah, and also cuz they have the best fans. only greeks care about domestic success. no one has heard of your 44 titles but everyone has heard of gate 13
2020-03-30 10:16
Gate 13 xD non-existent fans, you won't even see 1000+ of them in our olympic stadion, which they use because they're poor Gate 7, always filled to the max, lots of flares, tifos, banners and a lot of shittalk towards uefa. So tell me, who are you cheering for?
2020-03-30 15:11
lol i know nothing anything about greek football tbh i support hammarby, from stockholm. we're green and white and our oldest and biggest ultras group has friendship pao, rapid wien, shamrock, roma, sporting etc. all ultras that are tied to each other. i don't care about pao, olympiakos or any other greek team for that matter but if i had to pick one it would be pao. just thought it'd be funny to trigger you
2020-03-30 15:17
Well done, sir We're really close bonded with Delije from Red Star Belgrade and has close ties with Spartak Moscow as well.
2020-03-30 15:30
yeah i know :D greek and serbian ultras best in the world. hats off to olympiakos too, i respect your very much
2020-03-30 15:36
You too, man. I've witnessed Malmö once and I wasn't really impressed. But the tifos you have in Sweden are without a doubt amazing from times to times. Hammarby, Malmö, Djurgaarden and AIK
2020-03-30 15:37
agreed. our ultras can't match up with greek, serbian, polish, italian, dutch (etc.) ones in most aspects but our tifos are really up there with the best in europe, and we're without a doubt the best in sweden. malmoe's ultras are really embarrassing tbh, they've been by far the best team in sweden for a long time but really have no supporters to match it. awaydays there are really calm for a big match, you can roam their streets completely freely on gameday without their ultras doing anything at all. ifk göteborg has pretty good hooligans even for european standards tbh but the best ultras belong to the 3 stockholm teams. are you active? i thought you banned away supporters btw
2020-03-30 15:51
Well. Olympiakos, Aris, PAOK, Panathinaikos and a few other teams are not allowed to have away fans on their stands in the league. But it's been like this since 2012 if I am not correct. Our club can ask for few tickets against smaller clubs. In European matches away fans are welcome. But there's been a lot of troubles even against teams they have no history with. Like AEK - Ajax, where they threw AEK fans threw a molotov cocktail in the face of the Ajax fans. youtu.be/UIr43SL7Mag?t=79 The molotov incident
2020-03-30 16:17
yeah i remember that. maybe taking it a bit too far :D
2020-03-30 19:02
yeah, indeed. typical rats from aek

I would say it's not that big anymore. F1 is much more popular when it comes to motorsports.

Rally used to be huge thing in Finland and numerous world champions. There used to be an era when year after year the champion was a Finn. Back then there was lots of gravel roads (and ice roads on a lake during the winter) and even the smallest village had a motor club. There are still active rally clubs, but not that many young drivers anymore (well, Kalle Rovanperä is an exception and potential future chamption. Happens to be a son of rally world champion). Don't know why the activity has declined. Other sports lure young people more? Country side empty and people moving to cities (ie. not that easy to practice rally driving in a city)?
2020-03-29 23:01
Kalle is not son of world champion, man.

Well it used to be a lot bigger deal in the 70s and 80s but now it has lost some of its hype. There are still a lot of rally drivers in Finland and it's mostly more common in the rural areas since there are a lot of country roads that people can go out and practice their driving in. In the old days it was much more common that young people used to drive around even without a license underage so they got used to handling the car but now it's generally unacceptable socially. Cars are more expensive nowadays aswell so the cost of entry is higher. Many factors basically
2020-03-30 15:24
never met anyone who cared
2020-03-30 19:36
Never met anyone who drives rally or even watches it. That being said I know there has always been a good amount of Finnish drivers. Probably depends a lot where in Finland you live.
