Five years of domination of the World Rally Championship came to a dramatic end in the opening round of the 1985 competition. Flying Finn Ari Vatanen displayed every ounce of the forceful style for which he is loved by fans all over the globe as he gave the Peugeot team a deserved victory over the previously all-conquering Audi Quattro driven by the host country’s Stig Blomqvist. After two days of flat-out driving Vatanen and co-driver Terry Hayman were one minute 49 seconds ahead of Blomqvist to establish the Peugeot 205 as a main rally contender.
