Katsuta won Kokkola 400-vuotta Juhlaralli 2020

Hi, friends!

Toyota works driver from Japan Takamoto Katsuta won another rally in his career and this one was in Finland against super fast Finns but in much weaker machinery.

Let we be realistic, Toyota Yaris WRC has more then 400bhp and R5 cars have around 300bhp. It should be one of the WRC champions to beat Katsuta in WRC car.

Frankly, Katsuta built his speed in recent years and if he was able to win class at WRC Rally Sweden which is super fast rally, then he is not that weak against any top driver.

He has speed now and now he can progress further if Toyota Japan would want to invest in him.

Good job, Takamoto...

Congrats to Katsuta for the win! The Yaris looks tiny, but it's mighty capable. I'm keen to see how Toyota could improve on this for its replacement. In the meantime, that Evo crash looks terrible. Glad no one got seriously hurt, though!

shunts are just part of the sport, sometimes you can't avoid them if you want to be fast

That's quite true, and it does make up for the adrenaline and excitement in the sport, I guess. As they say, no pain, no gain!
