It was a particularly sweet feeling and important accomplishment given, as was the case in Estonia three weeks earlier, Katsuta had never finished Rally Finland before last weekend.
“Yeah, exactly,” Katsuta told DirtFish.
“I finally finished my second home rally and, yeah, this will help for the future, my experience side and I can push more in the future on this rally.”
A true mark of Katsuta’s consistency can be found in his Rally Finland stage times.
He was just always in the ballpark. He’s established such a solid base and foundation to build from now and, as a result, he can begin concentrating on finding those last tenths to consistently fight at the front.
