SAAB Clubs

Preparation for IntSaab 2021 Finland

Saab Club of Finland has been awarded the rights to organize the IntSaab event in 2021. They’ve done it twice already: Ellivuori was the location in 2001 and 2011, but making Ellivuori III is not a part of their plan. As a result of extensive research, club decided to place the event in Himos.

Himos is located in the municipality of Jämsä, between Tampere and Jyväskylä, approximately three hours drive from both Turku and Helsinki. Himos may sound familiar to many Saab enthusiasts, thanks to Rally Finland or 1000 Lakes Rally, as it was formerly known. Himos sets the scene for one of the special stages, but the most well-known stage is probably Ouninpohja, only a couple of kilometers from Himos.

As the scene of IntSaab 2021 Finland, Himos offers to everyone a lot of potential. The facilities are good for thousands of participants, and the same amount can be accommodated in the immediate vicinity of the event. Cars can be parked next to the colossal event tent, and the tent will protect us in the unfortunate event of midnight sun showers.

Now this may even sound a bit too spacious, but Himos is also able to scale down. This means club can offer a practically unlimited number of tickets, but organiyers can also organize an event where we’ll all feel cozy and comfortable.

The logo of IntSaab 2021 Finland

The IntSaab 2021 Finland event logo is designed by Saab Club of Finland member Tomi Laamanen. Tomi also happens to be the man behind our club’s membership card, and you may sense certain similarities in the design language.

Let’s have a closer look into what the design of the logo attempts to convey us. Valuing all Saab models equally and unquestionably, from UrSaab to the 2014 9-3, has always been the cornerstone of Saab Club of Finland philosophy. You can therefore spot familiar Saab shapes of various ages in the IntSaab 2021 Finland event logo.

IntSaab 2021 Finland Logo

Southern Finland is known for its thousands of lakes, and the North is the home of many aesthetic fells. In his design, Tomi retrieves inspiration from nature, and let’s Saab silhouettes represent it. The fell is actually a Saab 92, the lake is a 96, and the shadows reflecting from the lake are 96 and 900 facelifts. The last 9-5 produced sits parked on the shore, between the lake and the fell.

If we close our eyes for a brief moment, we can imagine the passengers of the Saab NG 9-5 enjoying the last rays of sunset reflecting from the water.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.

  • Our summer cottage is 62 kms apart from Himos so I’ll definitely drive there with my NG9-5 👍
