WRC2 A FULL 2013
just hold on, guys!
16-11-2013 – Wales Rally of GB –
Ukrainian crews are running the distance of Wales Rally of GB – the Friday section turned into some troubles for Valeriy Gorban and Oleksii Kikireshko. But they could keep their results in the top ten standings of WRC- 2. Valery got the 9th line and Kikireshko – the 8th.
All of participants considered Friday as the most difficult day of rally – it had only remote service during this day, so all drivers had to run more than 137 kilometers of rough road without no service help. In this case the car had to be as reliable as the rock. And our MINI did not disappoint our team!
Valeriy Gorban and Andrei Nikolayev faced some worries with shock absorbers during the second section of the day: “We realized we have a troubles and decided to slow down to reach the finish line”, – said Korsya. Finally Gorban lost about 11.1 seconds and Kikireshko got the position above his team-mate.
“Yesterday we had a shake-down stage and met some troubles with the car, – said Oleksii Kikireshko. – But on Friday it was quite good – we didn’t loose our pace and keep it till the finish”.
But it’s too early to relax. Are Ukrainian drivers ready to fight for the WRC-2 ranking? Wales Rally of GB will give us an answer soon.
