WRC2 A FULL 2015
Ukrainian Eurolamp World Rally Team is ready to start the new season in the World Rally Championship 2015.
1 Frebuary 2015
– Ukrainian team is participating in the second WRC event arranged in Sweden at 12-15 of February.
Rally Sweden is one of the well-known rallies for the team. Eurolamp WRT leading driver Valery Gorban took part in this rally three times and did it with MINI John Cooper Works S2000 last year. This car is going to be used this season too. So in this case the lack of the experience is not the point, however the careful preparation for the first rally of the season 2015 is the most important task for the team still.
The first glimpse of Rally Sweden special atmosphere will be shown to the crew of Valery Gorban and Vladimir Korsia with tests in Finland. They have already had two training sessions in Rovaniemi, on the special tests track named Snow Rally Rings. There the final stage of the testing will be held for Ukrainian crew: according to the tests’ arrangement, the team is spending the first days of February in Lapland again. Afterwards the crew is moving 1,100 km – to Estonia. There the second part of the testing program is scheduled from 5 to 7 February. And, finally, at the end of this session Gorban and Korsia are going to Sweden – there they are taking part in official pre-event tests of Rally Sweden, the second event of WRC season 2015.
One of the interesting news from the team is the appearance of one more crew in Eurolamp World Rally Team colors. Ukrainian driver Oleksii Kikireshko with his co-driver Kuldar Sikk (Estonian) are joining the training session of the in Estonia following by Rally Sweden with the technical and service support by Eurolamp WRT. Kikireshko is using his last year Rally Sweden car MINI John Cooper Works S2000; and both Ukrainian crews are taking part in WRC 2 standing, the second-largest of the world championship rankings.
Mykhail Loilenko, the director of Eurolamp World Rally Team:
“We are pleased to announce our cooperation with Oleksii Kikireshko who is working with Eurolamp WRT in the way of warm and friendly relations during years. The team has spent very significant and important year since the previous Rally Sweden, and we are ready to use the full advantage of the experience of working with MINI JCW S2000. I think fans around the world will be interested in following the rally with two crews with MINI.
The tests sessions are very important part of the preparation for Rally Sweden – we are ready to meet the tough challenge in WRC 2. The Entry List consists of 15 crews in this standing and there we can find well-known rally drivers as well as new names in the world rallying. We expect Rally Sweden to be very interesting and exciting event for everybody so it’s very important for us to be prepared for it as better as possible”.
