GP Week : 29-Apr-2008
SEBASTIEN Ogier scored his second successive JWRC victory, but this time won from behind. After Patrick Sandell consolidated his lead on the first day, Ogier had troubles galore. Firstly a problem with the fuel pump on his Citroen C2 S1600 which took mechanics an inordinately long time to fix, then shortly afterwards he hit a rock, punctured and had to stop in the stage to change the wheel. Of the 11 Junior cars still running, out of the 15 which started, he was down in ninth place. “I resolved after that to bide my time and see what happened,” Ogier declared. Then, it all started to go his way. By the end of Day 2 he was up to second and, when leader Sandell went off the road, Ogier was ahead. The official Suzuki Junior cars had a bad rally. Michal Kosciuszko stopped with engine trouble and Jan Molder crashed on the final day. Surviving constant gear selection troubles was the Irish driver Shaun Gallagher, whose eventual second place made this a Citroen 2-3. In third place was the Clio R3 ofGilles Schammel on what was the first occasion Group R cars had outnumbered traditional Super 1600 cars in the JWRC, and where they were run and officially recognised as a separate category.
