Dirt Rally's latest update introduces the sport's spiritual home

Start to Finnish. 

Dirt Rally's latest monthly update might be its most significant yet, introducing the Finnish rally alongside a couple of iconic cars from the turn of the century.

Version 0.8 brings 12 new stages around the most hardcore of venues, with tight gravelled roads running through thick forests that have been the proving ground for some of the sport's greatest drivers, with seven world champions hailing from Finland.

There's more! The 2001 Ford Focus RS and the 2001 Subaru Impreza also make their debut in Dirt Rally, though you've likely played with them before - both have been cover stars for the Colin McRae series that preceded Codemasters' latest (and I'd go as far to say greatest) off-road adventure.
