GP Week : Issue 102
There was a tremendous battle, eventually resolved in favour of Patrick Sandell, winning in his Skoda Fabia after a long battle with fellow Fabia driver Eyvind Brynildsen, when first Brynildsen punctured and then, with two stages go, he went off the road. Sandell was happy: “It was the first time I have done an asphalt event in the wet – if you could call this an asphalt event!” In non-championship S2000 cars, the winner was Henning Solberg, which meant he also won Group N. Solberg led for most of the event apart from when Andreas Mikkelsen pulled back from his appalling starting position to momentarily take the lead. Mikkelsen then had propshaft problems which in turn caused the power steering to fail. Jari Ketomaa ended up second and a fierce battle for third place was won by one second by Michael Kosciuszko in front of Xevi Pons. Despite an awful event in which he struggled with powersteering failure Pons fought hard to get a grasp on the event. He leads Ketomaa by seven points and Patrick Sandell by nine points... Out of contention now is the reigning JWRC champion Martin Prokop, after powersteering problems on Day 1 cost him a lot of time. Super 2000: Sandell prevails WRC BULGARIA >> WRC FRANCE >> Armindo Araujo cruised through to win after the early leader, PSD driver, Hayden Paddon had problems. Firstly Paddon clipped a rock on Stage 4 and punctured a tyre; near the end of Day 1 he stopped with alternator trouble and then on Day 2, uncharacteristically, a series of problems meant he finally finished up with no spare tyres. Anders Grondal took up the chase until he also punctured twice, with only one spare wheel, leaving another PSD driver Ott Tanak in second place in front of Toshi Arai. Araujo has a championship lead of 18 points ahead of the only other remaining contender for the title Patrik Flodin, who did not start this weekend. PWRC: Cruisin’ with Armindo 47
