Kalle Lehto takes FinTrack Tour Prostock title

The indoor portion of the FinTrack Tour recently concluded in Äänekoski with the fourth and final round. In the Touring 13.5T Prostock class the race for the title was on between Kalle Lehto and 2016 Champion, Vesa Yli. Vesa had won the opening round in Lahti while Kalle stroke back in round two and three, so Vesa needed to win at the finale in order to have a shot at the title. Right from the get go Kalle had an advantage though while Vesa struggled from an understeering car.
