Horsey extremely happy with day two

Mombasa born Peter Horsey, the African Pirelli Star Driver nomination, returned to the host city of the 2010 WRC Rally Finland, Jyvaskyla, at the end of an action packed second day with a very big grin on his face, having successfully tackled 11 high speed special stages at the wheel of his Ralliart Italy run Mitsubishi Evo X.

Horsey and co-driver Calvin Cooledge survived a small scare when they slid into a ditch on the very first corner of the first test of the day, escaping with just bruised egos, to set a number of very quick times as the rally progressed. With the majority of stages repeated during the day Peter was able to compare his times and reported a substantial improvement on every single stage.

By the end of the second day of rallying action Peter admitted that Finland was even better than he had expected and was full of smiles as he talked of the high speed action he had endured over the last 150 kilometres of special stages; wow, the roads are so awesome! The incident on the first stage was just me not paying attention but as the day progressed and my confidence grew I really began to enjoy myself! The sensation of travelling at full speed over blind crests and driving at full speed along tree lined tracks is just amazing!

The final day of rallying consists of seven special stages totalling 162 kilometres before the competitors return to Jyvaskyla for the ceremonial finish at approximately 7pm.
