WRC2 A FULL 2014
Rally Sweden – even if there is only a bit of snow…
6 February 2014
The second day of Rally Sweden has began for Valery Gorban and Vladimir Corsya with technical troubles and finally ended with the 8th result of WRC-2 standings. It wasn’t an easy day for Eurolamp World Rally Team and it’s fans but Ukrainian crew passed all sharp corners and is still ready to fight with roads of Rally Sweden and all it’s competitors.
Unfortunately the Thursday section started with technical troubles. Gorban made a mistake Wednesday evening and it caused an broken arm of the front suspension. The crew had to replace it by own hands without help from the technical team because the service park was quite far away from the park ferme Thursday morning. Gorban and Korsya replaced the arm but it took more time – our crew had 2 min of penalties and later they met other 10 seconds. It was a bit stressful to keep fighting with such unpleasant “surprise” and so Gorban and Korsya had only the 8th line in WRC-2 standings.
But fortunately Ukrainian team met the chance to be really fast at some SSs – at SS7 Gorban and Korsya got the 5th time and the best result was the SS5 where Gorban had the 2nd result. And what about the weather? “Snow and gravel are switching. We had some stages in Norway today, – said Vladimir Korsya. – So the weather there was colder and more snow. We wanted to be even more faster but from the beginning of the race we had troubles with a supercharger, we lost the pressure and the problem was solved only at regrouping section “
The Friday program of Rally Sweden consists of 9 special stages including one more super special stage in Karlstad.
