Pirelli helped young German talent Fabian Kreim to claim WRC2 victory on his home round of the World Rally Championship.



Kreim takes top honours. Despite it being relatively early in his career, Kreim has already won two German national titles with Pirelli and Škoda Deutschland, and is currently leading the 2019 series. For Rally Germany, he upgraded to the new Škoda Fabia R5 evo and was among the pace-setters in his category from the beginning.



Sitting third on Friday night, he was able to avoid major problems on the demanding asphalt stages and took over in the lead on Saturday lunchtime. He then remained out front through two loops in the fearsome Baumholder military area, and finished up 12th overall, less than a minute behind the factory-entered winner of the WRC2 Pro class.



Further success through the classes. Kajetan Kajetanowicz, three-times European Rally Champion with Pirelli, ensured the Italian company had two drivers on the WRC2 podium as he finished third in a Volkswagen Polo, and just three seconds away from second place. In all, Pirelli won over half of the stages in WRC2. It also took three other class wins, two of them with the father-and-son duo of Hermann Gassner Sr and Jr.



While the father was the leading national class runner in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, his son took the RC3 class in the rear-wheel drive Toyota GT86. Roman Schwedt, who usually competes in the Pirelli-supported ERC3 Junior series, was the top RC4 finisher in his Peugeot 208 R2.



P Zero RA handles demanding German roads. Rally Germany provides a comprehensive test for an asphalt tyre, with three different types of road: narrow and winding roads through the Mosel vineyards, multi-surface tracks in the Baumholder military area and fast lanes in the Saarland countryside. The Pirelli P Zero RA proved its versatility with strong pace in all conditions as well as good durability.



Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli rally activity manager: “This year’s Rallye Deutschland was unusually dry and warm from start to finish, with the RA tyres – available in medium and soft compounds – having to put up with long stages on many different types of surface. Against a top quality field, we placed two drivers on the WRC2 podium.



Another great result for us this weekend was on the Ozd-Salgo Rally in Hungary, where the top 16 finishers were all on Pirelli tyres: underlining our commitment to excellence in one of the toughest forms of motorsport, with a direct link to the roads that we drive on every day.



Finally, we’d like to send our very best wishes to Simone Scattolin, Fabio Andolfi’s navigator, who was injured in an accident on the final day while they were fighting at the sharp end of WRC2. We’re all looking forward to seeing him back in a rally car soon.”
