1. Introduction & Welcome

Dear rally friends,

First of all, we have to say THANK YOU! Thank you to all competitors entered for your support for our event! It is

absolutely amazing to see the number of entries we have. Times are not easy for anyone, as we can read in the

news every day, but you have all gone the extra mile to get the financial support from your sponsors to be part

of an epic motorsport event, which we will be bringing you again.

Looking back a few years, not that many things have changed in our concept for our regular visitors. We have

fine-tuned some areas of our operation and listened very carefully to any comments from the stakeholders. The

route has changed enough to bring new challenges to our competitors, the service area changes even if did not

want it - but this time it has definitely gone for the better, as it is gradually taking a more final shape!

As we are More than a Rally, we will be offering you a lot more than just that. Our service park offers various

entertainment over the rally weekend, but also more serious information, such as the FIA Action for Road Safety

campaign. There is something for everyone, from Disney themed Family World to motorbike action and artists to

please all tastes. We have also engaged ourselves to a new charity bringing joy and good care to the little patients

in children’s hospitals around the country. Over the weekend, you will meet our partners ‘Hospital Clowns’ in the

service area, bringing a smile to your face, too.

Please keep in mind that we are all there to make this an immemorial event for you all, always ready to lend a

hand where need be. Come and meet us in the rally office, media centre - anywhere, just for a coffee if nothing


Welcome to Jyväskylä - enjoy a safe rally!

Neste Oil Rally Finland Team

1.2 Environmental Policy

The organiser of Neste Oil Rally Finland, AKK Sports Ltd, wishes to act responsibly towards the environment in a

most effective way and wants to make sure that its event causes minimal harm to the society and environment.

The company also puts focus on pursuing a more eco-friendly all-round approach by awakening consciousness

of environmental issues in rally fans and all other factions involved.

In order to promote environmental responsibility, the organiser will:

- obey all laws and bylaws

- educate its own organisation and volunteers in environmental issues

- pursue options for better use of energy and eco-friendly solutions

- focus on minimising the amount of waste from the event and looking after its recycling, both in the special

stages and in the service park

- favour eco-friendly materials when building up the event

- strive to minimise the use of private cars in its event by increasing public transport

- fill the cars used by its organisation with the best eco-friendly fuel available

- demand eco-friendly solutions from its suppliers

- commit to decrease the number of prints and photocopies in the media centre

According to the current FIA trend, Neste Oil Rally Finland will also do its utmost to reduce its carbon footprint.

One important factor is the number of print outs made from various documents. Rally Guide 2 will only be

published on the event website and a bare minimum of supplementary regulations will be printed for the key

officials and competitors.

We would appreciate all competitors joining us for this campaign by informing us early the number of road books

and other printed documents they need (should this be less than the regulatory package), so we do not end up

throwing a lot of unused materials straight to recycling.

5. Service Park

5.1 Location

GPS Coordinates: North 62° 14.271’ East 25° 45.352’

The Service Park is located in the area around the Jyväskylä Paviljonki Rally HQ and Jyväskylä Harbour.

Manufacturers and WRC Teams entered to the FIA WRC will have their designated areas in the Service Park

according to the Championship Regulations. There will be a dedicated area for the auxiliary vehicles in an

auxiliary parking area within the Service Park. Due to the restricted space in the Service Park, private entries will

not be given any auxiliary plates.

The area of Paviljonki HQ is still under development, so the layout of the Service Park has changed again from

previous year.

The Service Park area is tarmac for Manufacturers and WRC Teams, gravel or equivalent surface for other

competitors. All competitors must use ground protection sheets in the whole service park.

The complete layout of the Service Park can be found as Appendix 4.1

Final lay-out with competitor locations will be published at the event website on Wednesday 24 July 2013.

A minimum 6 kg fire-extinguisher must be kept in each service bay at all times.

5.2 Admission to the Service Park

The Service Park will be opened on Monday, 29 July 2013 at 09.00 for the Priority Drivers and on Wednesday, 31

July 2013 at 08.00 for the non-priority drivers. Priority drivers should report to the Service Park Co-ordinator Mr.

Mikko Huuska by phone +358 40 5478775 before arriving to area.

All parties are kindly asked to respect these opening times. Manufacturers, WRC Teams or Tyre Manufacturers

wishing to bring equipment or sea containers to the Service Park area before the given opening time must inform

the organiser thereof. If the organiser has not received such notification, we cannot guarantee any access to the

area. All costs of moving the equipment either within or from outside the Service Park to its final position will be

borne by the relevant owner of the equipment.

Competitors are kindly asked to remind all their team staff to always carry their Competitor/Service Passes, as

the organiser will be collecting an admission fee into the service park from anyone without a valid pass.

Park. Auxiliary vehicles may only enter the Service Park to bring or collect personnel and/or equipment. Due to

restricted room in the Service Park, privateer teams will not be given any auxiliary plates. For the same reason

all trailers and tractor units must be removed to the dedicated parking area outside Service Park. Map to parking

area can be found from Appendix 2.5 (Jyväskylä City Map).

service park. The car park will operate during the rally week as follows:

the auxiliary vehicles and media. Please note that the maximum height available in the car park is 2.15 metres!

During the night Service Park will be closed. Accommodation of team staff in motor homes is not allowed inside

the exhibition centre.

6. Two-way Radio

GSM and UMTS mobile stations, LA (CB), PR 27 and PMR 446 (analog and digital) telephones are exempted from

licensing, provided they fulfill the requirements of relevant equipment standards and specifications. The use

of all other kinds of radio transmitters is subject to a licence issued by the Finnish Communications Regulatory

Authority (FICORA). FICORA shall be notified of the frequencies in the equipment in question, upon which it will

decide on assigning the customer a suitable frequency and will issue a licence for the radio transmitter.

Throughout the rally, the use of frequencies for amateur radio is prohibited.

At the pre-event scrutineering, the radio transmitters and licences will be inspected. Radio transmitters in

aircrafts will be inspected, too.

The use of radio transmitters will be monitored throughout the rally. Unlicensed use, or use outside the terms of

a licence, of a radio transmitter, may lead, in case of serious interference, to prohibition of the use of the radio

transmitter, in accordance with the Act on Radio Frequencies and Telecommunications Equipment in Finland.

7.6 Dispensing of Pump Fuel

The pump fuel will be dispensed at petrol stations as directed in the road book for the non-priority drivers who

have indicated the use of it. However, these drivers’ attention is drawn to the fact that the locations of available

petrol stations for the pump fuel are not given in the itinerary of the rally (Appendix 1.1) and the distances from

one refuel to the next are different from the ones given in the afore mentioned itinerary. The distances between

the pump fuel petrol stations are given in Appendix 1.4.

Also, be careful to study the prescriptions of Art. 8.3 of the Supplementary regulations and Official Bulletin no.

1. Finnish competitors are reminded that equipment allowed in national events to assist in refuel operations, is

strictly forbidden in Neste Oil Rally Finland.

Competitors using pump fuel do not have to follow the route marked in the road book to visit the FIA fuel remote

refuel zones, as given above in Art. 7.5 - NB! Be careful to follow any instructions given by officials concerning

e.g. technical checks at the refuel zones. Please note shortening of road section distances as given in Art. 12.5.

Competitors should note that some pump fuel locations require leaving the measured route, i.e. the distances

change due to service station visits.

The competitors using pump fuel are reminded to refuel their cars before the start of the rally for 26.12 km of

road section as the first official refuel point is on the road section between Start and SS1 Himos. Also, please note

that there is no pump fuel available in the Paviljonki Service Park, but you must always return to the Parc Fermé

(and end-of-day service) with enough fuel to reach the next refuelling in the following day.

Competitors who use pump fuel and retire from the rally, must refuel their car before reporting in the parc fermé

© AKK Sports Ltd


for re-start. Refuelling in the service park area is forbidden, please contact scrutineers for instructions.

The competitors using these petrol stations are kindly asked to pay attention to other customers as the stations

are open to public. The petrol stations have kindly promised the organiser to reserve at least one fuel pump

for competitors use to minimise queueing. Please be reminded to settle the payment immediately after each

refuelling at the petrol station till. Please take enough cash with you, in case your credit card should not work.

8. Import of Vehicles and Spare Parts

8.1 Competitors from the European Union

Competitors coming from the European Union do not need to make any special customs clearance. They may

use any vehicle in Finland for up to 6 months without clearing it, provided that the vehicle is not brought to

Finland with the intention of selling it. All vehicles need to have a valid traffic insurance. Tyres and spare parts

can also be imported without clearance.

It is always good to have a list of tools and equipment you bring into the country, in case you will be asked to

prove what you had with you on the way in.

8.2 Competitors from outside the European Union

Competitors coming from outside the European Union will have to report at the customs on their way in. Please

prepare a list of all the tools and equipment you are bringing with you. This list will be stamped at the customs

and they may collect a security (the amount is negotiable). Tyres are under customs as they are non-durable

goods. The customs payment will be returned if the used tyres are exported from the country on the way out, as

well as the security, if all equipment is exported.

13.3 Preparations for Scrutineering and Sealing

Read carefully Article 11 of the Supplementary Regulations!

In reference to the FIA WRC regulations, articles 26, 59.3, 63 and 64 concerning the use of mechanical components,

sealing and marking, all competitors are asked to carefully read these articles.

These regulations order competitors to prepare for sealing (valid to ALL competitors) :

- turbochargers/compressors and air restrictors

- Engine block

- All transmission units (front/central/rear differentials and gearboxes, the ones installed and spares)

For the purpose of controlling the engine block and chassis used during the rally, these will be sealed on all cars.

This means that the competitors must themselves make all the preparations for sealing before arriving to the

scrutineering, i.e. they have to drill the holes for the sealing wires and they must have a reliable wire installed in

these holes. Wire shall go through at least two bolts. The wire may be wrapped for a maximum of 20 mm, and

an excess of at least 20 cm of the unwrapped wire must be available. This way the scrutineers only have to check

ramp. They stop the engine, crew gets out of the car and stands on either side of the car with doors open waving

for the photographers (20 sec). They drive off the ramp and park their car, which will be then taken care of by

sports, AKK-Motorsport, with its marketing company AKK Sports, passes on FIA’s message on road safety by

introducing the national branch of the campaign in Neste Oil Rally Finland.

with the scheme spearheaded by F1-driver Valtteri Bottas, WRC2 driver Esapekka Lappi, rally promise Laura

Suvanto and rallycross star Toomas Heikkinen. The campaign was launched in February when the Finnish Rally

Championship kicked off and is boosted by co-operation from Liikenneturva (the country’s central organisation

for traffic safety), Michelin and motor sport live footage specialist FilmWorks. In addition to Neste Oil Rally

Finland the campaign is also strongly present in events belonging to national championships.

19. Medical and Safety Service

19.1 Medical Information

At the administrative checks before the rally all drivers must present their Medical Certificate of Aptitude in

accordance with the FIA medical standards, and as given to them by their own ASN. Normally this Medical

Certificate of Aptitude is included to International Competitor´s License, but if it is not, competitor is responsible

to present a separate document.

A decision in accordance with Finnish law has been taken by the Health Care District Central Finland that an

© AKK Sports Ltd


individual living elsewhere than in Finland must pay the total cost of treatment received unless other provision

has been made in international agreements.

Residents of EU/EEA/ and Switzerland

By presenting your European Health Insurance Card, you will receive medical treatment on the same terms as

the local residents. However, not all doctors and hospitals operate within the reimbursement system, which

means that any costs you incur outside the system will have to be paid by yourself. As a general rule, public

health services are covered by the reimbursement system.

The European Health Insurance Card mainly covers emergency treatment in the event of an illness or injury

and other medically necessary treatment. You can also get medical treatment if you have a pre-existing chronic

condition that requires medical attention while you are abroad.

Please contact your national health insurance authorities to get your card before travelling to Finland.

Residents of other countries

If you are a resident of a country other than those mentioned above, the patient charge will be the equivalent of

the total cost of treatment plus the patient charge for an individual living in Finland.

Payment of the patient charge

If you require first aid, collection of the patient charge will be made as you leave hospital. Collection of the charge

will take place in advance in cases where you have agreed with the hospital on treatment that is not urgent.

Should an insurance institution be responsible for your patient charges, acceptable evidence of this must be

presented to the hospital.

All competitors living in the European Community should organise themselves a European Health Insurance Card

to be able to get free medical services at the communal health care centres and hospitals.

This card can be obtained from your local social services.

Medical Services in Service Park Paviljonki

Service Park Medical Centre is marked on the service area map with a cross symbol, and is located next to the

Michelin tyre area. A doctor will be present during the opening hours of the service park with medical staff in

attendance. This medical unit will help you with any problems you may have and will respond to any accidents

that may occur in your service areas. The unit will be open as follows:

Wednesday 31 July 1600-2200

Thursday 1 August 1000-0030 (at least)

Friday 2 August

0830-0030 (at least)

Saturday 3 August 0730-2100 (at least)

You can reach the unit through rally control emergency numbers (in road book) or directly at +358 50 389 2244.

There is also a first aid room in the Rally HQ lobby, which is open during the opening hours of the Paviljonki

building, and cater for spectators and competitors alike.

20.2 City of Jyväskylä

Neste Oil Rally Finland has been hosted by the City of Jyväskylä since the very beginning of the event, for over 60

years. The role of the city has grown to be a more central one over the years, as the event has grown from a

modest concentration run for a handful of enthusiasts to a full-blown world level event.

General Information

The city of Jyväskylä was inaugurated as a town in 1837 and is located in the lake district of Central Finland. It is

easily reached by road, air and water. Lively, youthful Jyväskylä is Finland’s seventh largest city with a population

of almost 130 000. New Jyväskylä was formed at the beginning of 2009 as a result of the merger of Jyväskylä,

Jyväskylä Rural Municipality and Korpilahti. Today Jyväskylä is a bustling centre for business, education, sports

and culture. The Jyväskylä region – comprising of the city of Jyväskylä and six municipalities surrounding it – has

170 000 inhabitants.

Jyväskylä is a school and university town with 45 000 students during the academic year, providing a diversity of

educational offerings for people of all ages. The multi-disciplinary University of Jyväskylä and Jyväskylä University

of Applied Sciences and the Jyväskylä Vocational Institute are among Finland’s leading research and educational

institutions with an increasing number of international students.

Bustling Centre of Innovation

Jyväskylä is one of Finland’s five centres of growth. Special expertise can be found in the fields of paper

manufacturing and paper machinery as well as energy production, environmental, information, welfare and


In recent years, Jyväskylä has gained reputation as organiser of many national and international congresses and

fairs in the Jyväskylän Paviljonki Fair and Congress Centre.

Quality of Life

The landscape of Jyväskylä is varied with lakes, forests and hills within a walking distance of the city centre. The

Laajavuori skiing centre and recreation area with its new outdoor theatre facility provides excellent opportunities

for sports and other activities, and that is where the shakedown of the rally also takes place. Lively pedestrian

precinct and beautiful university campus right in the city centre are central places for different events. The trail

around Lake Jyväsjärvi is a great recreational area for both residents and visitors alike.

The Jyväskylä region is easily reached by land and air: the distance of 270 kilometres from Helsinki takes only 35

minutes by plane and some 3 hours by car or by rail. For more information about the city and what it can offer,
