What a rally!
The tracks through the Welsh forests are quite simply magic… fast and slippery, and if you add to that the tyipical ‘Rally GB’ conditions -Mud, rain, fog- you simply get one of the most exciting events of the year.
Despite a little ‘glitch’ and a 10 seconds penalty on the first day, Thierry quickly found the right pace… if Elfyn Evans’ Ford and his Dmack tyres were out of reach, we were playing in the big league.
For a co-driver, those stages designed in private woods are amazing! This is why I love rallying so much. Our Hyundai was perfect and we were faster than all the other Michelin drivers on Saturday… but a dramatic penultimate stage in the fog did cost us a bunch of seconds.
But Thierry bounced back straight on and we regained our 2nd position overall on Sunday morning and kept it till the end, with a 5 bonus points from the Power Stage. In conclusion, it’s a very satisfying result. Congrats to Seb Ogier and Julien Ingrassia who won the title… see you guys in 2018 for the revenge!
Before that, we will battle hard in Australie to keep our 2nd position in the championship!
Thanks once again for your support. It means the world to us.
