During the first special stage of the 1000 Lakes Rally held on Friday, 23 August 1996, the yellow Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Group N of Danish team Karsten Richardt-Ole Frederiksen failed the braking point before a right bend, jumped over a hump at about 150 km/h and went straight into a field. The out of control car crashed against a kerbstone and ran into a spectator area about 80 meters ahead, hitting a large number of them. Ludo Briers of Belgium passed away later that day in the hospital; thirty-two other people were injured, nine of them seriously.
