While the rally format has undergone major changes, the majority of the roads will be familiar to the drivers. There is one all-new test, the 6.45km Sirkkamaki on Friday, and short sections elsewhere that have not been used previously, but the rest of the 310.05km route has been driven in recent years. The service park returns to the popular Paviljonki exhibition area in Jyvaskyla. Thursday evening's traditional super special stage at the Killeri trotting track has been dropped in favour of a forest test on the edge of Jyvaskyla, which passes through the town's ski jumping arena. Friday's action is based west and north-east of the town before the second leg, the longest of the event, journeys south-west for tests near Jamsa and Mantta. Drivers tackle 19 stages in a total distance of 1307.87km. <pre> RALLY FINLAND ROUND 8 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 29 - 31 July 2010
