Petter Solberg: a second from heaven in Hell

10366216_10152514171447922_8379444811636914940_n

15 June 2014

After a week of jokes about the road to Hell, Petter Solberg came within one second of finding heaven in Hell.

Solberg said: “In the final we had some challenges with a wet track. I decided to go out on a medium setup – a compromise between wet and dry. I lost some time because of that, but it wasn’t worth the risk by choosing one or the other.

“[Final winner, Reinis] Nitiss drove very well during the whole weekend. He impresses me. I came out of the joker lap and was in a position to take up the fight with him, but decided to back off. We need to be clever in the race for the title: you don’t become a world champion in one day in this game. It takes 12 races!

“We’ve had a lot of strategy meetings in our team during the last week and that’s the way we will continue. I drove on the safe side all weekend – just focusing on getting the most championship points possible.

“The racing was really close all weekend, but it started terribly for me when I missed out on the start in the first heat, which was totally my own fault. I managed to stay focused on our strategy and I stayed out of any kind of trouble in the last three races. The track in Norway is very difficult, you have to be careful in every corner. One mistake among 38 cars will make it so tough for you. That’s why I was so focused on driving as smooth as possible.

“In the fourth heat I even got a win and from then everything worked out great. Our strategy was spot on and I could drive my own race. It’s a shame to miss the win for the home fans, but, like I said, this is the long game – we got very good points here and we’re still really close to the top.”

A home win for the hjem (check your Norwegian-English dictionary – or last week’s PSRX preview) hero was just beyond one of Norway’s biggest sporting superstars Petter Solberg at his home World RX round today.

But, there was a plan. As Solberg has explained, his eyes are firmly on the big prize and second in the Hell final this afternoon moves him closer to a top of the table return.

Solberg dominated the early competition, winning heat four and his semi-final to give himself the perfect platform to take a second win from three rounds. Ultimately, he settled for a comfortable second place – three seconds ahead of American driver Ken Block.

PSRX driver Solberg is now just three points behind Nitiss in the World RX championship. Finnish driver Topi Heikkinen is third in the standings, 10 points behind Petter.

Solberg’s team-mate Alexander Hvaal, driving the sister Citroen to Petter’s, missed out on World RX points in Norway.

Hvaal said: “My misfortune continues. I’m very disappointed. I struggled with all kinds of problems during the weekend and didn’t get a clean run. In the end, I had a puncture in the final heat and couldn’t get to the semi-final.”

One thing we liked about Hell:
The fans. They were amazing! That’s because so many of them were Norwegians!

One thing we didn’t like about Hell:
Finishing second. We love winning!

Race facts…
Final result:
1 Reinis Nitiss 4m07.165s
2 Petter Solberg 4m08.153s
3 Ken Block 4m11.057s
4 Timur Timerzyanov 4m.12.539s
5 Henning Solberg 4m17.040s
6 Timmy Hansen 4m50.381s

Championship positions:
1 Reinis Nitiss 72pts
2 Petter Solberg 69pts
3 Topi Heikkinen 59pts
4 Andreas Bakkerud 57pts
5 Timur Timerzyanov 41pts
6 Anton Marklund 39pts

Next time out
We’ll be in Kouvola for World RX of Finland (June 28/29). See you there. By the way, did you know Finland also holds world championship events for mobile phone throwing and mosquito catching?
You do now.
See you next time.

40th MANATEQ QATAR?? INTERNATIONAL RALLY

SATURDAY

SS11 – Al-Khor 2 – 18.18km.

AL-ATTIYAH ?? SEALS 14TH QATAR ?? RALLY WIN AND FIRST REGIONAL SUCCESS FOR VOLKSWAGEN’S POLO GTI R5 ??

LUSAIL (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah cruised through the final six gravel special stages of the Manateq Qatar International Rally to seal a convincing victory on Saturday.

A record-breaking 14th victory in his home event also marked a remarkable 70th MERC victory in the 211-event history of the FIA Middle East Rally Championships since 1984. His French co-driver Matthieu Baumel duly claimed his third win in Qatar and a career 18th in the MERC.

The success also marked the first outright FIA championship rally win for Volkswagen’s Polo GTI R5 that made its debut at the WRC in Spain last October and claimed WRC 2 success in Sweden in February with Norwegian driver Ole Christian Veiby. Customer Polos have already won national events in Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Latvia this year

A menos de 10 días del Rally blanco de Suecia, con mucha expectativa para volver a ver a los mejores exponentes del WRC en los caminos forestales nórdicos, les dejamos una foto recordatoria de la edición 1995 con el Impreza 555 de Grupo A que intervinieron en esa instancia en el equipo azul de Prodrive, el español Carlos Sainz, el recordado escocés Colin McRae y el local Mat Jonsson.
