For a third time this season the Toyota Gazoo Racing Challenge Program driver Takamoto Katsuta will be getting a new co-driver, this time the former Oliver Solberg´s co-driver Aaron Johnston will be teaming up with the Japanese driver for Rally Finland.

Keaton Williams is still unavailable following when both Katsuta and Williams had to miss out the EKO Acropolis Rally in Greece when Williams had to travel back home due to family emergencies.

Last week, Johnston and Solberg have announced they will be parting away from their long-term partnership and for the Rally Finland, Johnston recieved the opportunity to be stepping in for Katsuta.

It will not be the first time in a WRC rally car for Johnston, he has previously experienced the Hyundai i20 WRC twice this year in Arctic Rally Finland and Ypres Rally in Belgium,
