Finnish racing legend Leo Kinnunen passed away yesterday. He was the first Finnish F1 driver, Porsche factory driver, Daytona 24h winner (917), Targa Florio second place (908), Porsche rally driver (911), etc, etc.

(See the complete list of achievements here: racing, rallying, formula1)

Here is one really cool photo from Jyväskylän Suurajot 1977 (1000 Lakes Rally, now WRC Neste Rally Finland). The story is that their accelerator cable was disconnected when landing heavy from jump and his co-driver had to jump off his seat and go to engine bay to operate throttle manually to finish the stage.



Here is an article about the incident in Finnish. You can use Google Translate to read it in English or some other language.

Tästä kuvasta kuskilegenda Leo Kinnunen muistetaan: Jorma Pulkkinen roikkui hengenvaarallisesti takaluukussa - Formula 1 - Ilta-Sanomat

R.I.P Leo Kinnunen, true Porsche racing legend and one of the Flying Finns.

Yeah, you just don't quit the race due to a minor setback like lacking the throttle

Must have been one of the POR (press on regardless) rallies held in North America in the 70's 80's.
