WRC2 A FULL 2014
Rally Sweden – even faster
8 February 2014
The final section of Rally Sweden has brought an variety of emotions for Valeriy Goban and Vladimir Korsya. First of all our crew has increased the speed significantly and therefore they were really good during all Saturday. The last day of Rally Sweden became the best page in the Swedish portfolio of Ukrainian team. Gorban and Korsya kept good speed in top-5 WRC- 2 and even got the victory at one of special stages. However, it was Saturday day which brought the biggest disappointment to our driver – Gorban has made a mistake at the last SS, got out of the road and lost about 10 minutes. Finally they could reach the finish line with the 7th place in WRC- 2 standings.
“We started the day in a good mood – from the very early morning. The most important thing – we were able to go faster tham we did last days and we got several SS in Top-3 of WRC- 2. Usually our crew prefers long “marathon” distance, but this time we felt comfortable at short special stages too – so we have spent our rally in effective pace”,- said Vladimir Korsya .
Despite of warm weather and ruined snow surface Rally Sweden remained winter race still. And in that situation Gorban and Korsya have found their previous test session very useful. Snow-driving skills of our crew were improved and Ukrainian crew could feel good in Sweden. The team has managed to fulfill the main goal: to finish the rally without restarts and got the position in WRC-2. The team would like to thank all their fans for their support and confirm this season’s program for Gorban and Korsya. Eurolamp WRT will take part in six more European-based events of the World Rally Championship.
