WALES RALLY GB, SECTION SEVEN



Gus Greensmith (3rd WRC 2 / 3rd RC4) said
:
 

“It’s been a good rally for us and I was really happy with our performance on Friday. Unfortunately when we were in a big battle with Pontus [Tidemand] – and having got the gap down to just four seconds – I had a fairly high-speed spin which increased the gap too much.
 


“After that it was just a case of staying calm, keeping the pace up, and making sure the gap didn’t get any bigger. That’s what we did and I was happy to secure another podium finish. It was a good way to end the season and we’re still in third place in the championship so it would be nice if it stays like that at the end of the year!”
 



Matt Edwards (1st BRC / 9th RC4) said:
 


“We struggled a little bit this morning and it was pretty difficult to be honest. We did the same as yesterday and softened the set-up which gave a lot more feeling in the car. But the times weren’t great today and once David [Bogie] went off we backed off and just drove around. As undramatic as that may sound, that is what we had to do as I didn’t want to risk any damage.
 


“Overall from the weekend we are really happy, we have worked hard to maximise this opportunity to get the best possible result – tweaking the set-up and swapping the tyres to make sure we had done everything we could. Of course you are never going to have everything perfect in rally, but overall we are really happy.”
 



Alex Laffey (2nd BRC / 11th RC4) said:

 

“We took it at our own pace today. We were cautious where we needed to be, and pushed hard when we could and it was good to see our times getting closer.


But today it was all about finishing and when David [Bogie] went off and handed us extra points it was great to take second overall on the rally as well as second overall in the British Rally Championship – so all in all we are pretty happy!”
 




Gaurav Gill (12th RC4) said:

 
“It’s been a great rally for us with a lot of learning over the weekend. This is something that we haven’t done before, a very slippery surface which we had never encountered, either for our tyres or ourselves.



 It was a great weekend to collect a lot of important data and a lot of learning about the tyres for the future.  We had some really good times and we are really happy with the experience that we have gained and we look forward to going to Australia next.”
 



Éric Camilli (10th WRC 2 / 14th RC4 / Rally 2) said:

 
“The rally went well and I was happy with the pace we showed. It was a bit frustrating to retire with the punctures on Friday, but we showed good speed and proved that we could have fought for the top positions so I am happy with that.”
