“It was a great rally that was again a lot of fun,” said the overall leader happily. “The Corsa-e Rally worked perfectly again, Marine and the team did a fabulous job. I am completely satisfied. ”
At the end of the eight special stages Pellier / Pelamourgues had a lead of 26.3 seconds over the Dutch-Australian couple Timo and Rebecca van der Marel.
“I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and demanding the special stages were here,” said the 32-year-old cup senior. “We attacked fully from the start, there was no moment to rest. Apart from Pellier, they were all very close together, every test was fiercely contested – just as it should be in a one-make cup. It was a cool rally! ”
The best-placed German team were once again Max Reiter and Lina Meter. The 21-year-old from Diefflen in Saarland finished third on the podium for the third time this season and took second place in the interim standings.
In the end, Luca Waldherr and Claudia Maier looked a little less happy. The Austrians had to be content with fourth place in the Corsa-e Rally from Opel Austria. “We were a little too cautious at the beginning because we don’t have any after Barum
wanted to risk further failure. In the afternoon we really accelerated again and are ultimately satisfied with the points for fourth place, ”commented Waldherr.
For the participants, the one-make cup is not just about victories and prize money, but also about the chance to make it into the ADAC Opel Rally Junior Team at the end of the season.
