Gronholm wins Rally of Finland


World champion Marcus Gronholm ended a nightmare nine-month spell without a win as the Peugeot driver took victory in the Rally of Finland today.

The Finn, who had scored just four points this season before the Jyvaskyla-based event, finished 25 seconds ahead of Subaru's Richard Burns.

Colin McRae secured the final podium spot in his Ford, 32.3 seconds adrift of winner Gronholm, as Harri Rovanpera dropped two places to fourth in his Peugeot on the final stage.
