WRC2 A FULL 2017
MOTORSPORT ITALIA AND BENITO GUERRA IN SPAIN.
Not too far behind Veiby was the Motorsport Italia FABIA R5 of the Mexican Benito Guerra and his Spanish co-driver Daniel Cué. Guerra knows this event well having first driven here back in 2009 and won twice in the PWRC class in 2011 and 2012. He also won the Spanish Gravel Rally Championship in 2010. This is his first podium finish at WRC2 level in Spain though, making it three for the season, after previous third place results at the Rally Mexico and Rally Argentina.
After a strong start here in the shakedown, he stuck with the pack well during the morning of the first leg when he suffered some dizzy spells. He recovered in the afternoon and managed to end the day in fourth place in the WRC2 standings. A strong Saturday saw him move up to third place and on the final day, he held off the challenge of the young Finn Juuso Nordgren in the second ŠKODA Motorsport FABIA R5 to secure his podium place.
This result leaves Guerra in sixth place in the overall WRC2 standings, nine points behind Ole Christian Veiby in fifth. He too will be competing in the next round at the Wales Rally GB.
“I am very happy to finish the Rally Catalunya with a solid third position and our third podium finish of the season,” said Benito Guerra afterwards. “This result gives us very good points in the championship and we now look ahead to the Wales Rally GB where we hope we can put in another strong showing.”
