FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP (WRC2) 2015: MINI EUROLAMP WORLD RALLY TEAM-RALLY MEXICO. IT IS ONLY THE START OF THE SEASON
WRC2 A FULL 2015
Rally Mexico. It is only the start of the season.
9 March 2015
The Eurolamp WRT’s duo expected that Saturday’s special stages would be the hardest part of the Rally Mexico. Unfortunately the crew was right.
On Saturday Valery Gorban and Vladimir Korsia faced troubles which ruined their race. During the first Saturday’s special stage the crew had to drive with opened bonnet. After that there were problems with overheating brakes. Long list of the troubles painted in damage of front driveshaft. The final point of the nightmare day was an accident on SS15 when MINI John Cooper Works S2000 got into a ditch. Fortunately neither the crew nor the spectators were unhurt but the car was badly damaged.
Valery Gorban, Eurolamp WRT driver:
“Our main goal was to pass the whole distance of the race. Unfortunately our knowledge of the Mexican roads were not enough and we have no chance to pass the rally without problems.
We wanted to continue the fight after the accident on SS15 but our damaged car did not allow us to return on the race. We hoped for another result but it is motorsport. We have shown that our crew can keep good pace and have gained experience in the struggle in the difficult conditions of Mexican roads. And now we are looking for the next event. It is only the start of the season! “
