Congrats ๐Ÿ‘ to @LouiseCookGB on the podium finish in a RC4 class at the WRC3 championship round, Rally Italia Sardegna this weekend #grandopportunity Fantastic Achievement ! - See if you can spot our logo 

A quick round up in the words of Louise Cook of the Rally Sardinia where she managed to secure a podium in the WRC3 championship: - 

 

  • Had to make a last minute change to a different car to the 208 R2

  • Only a short 30 km test in the car before the rally, not confident, such a different chassis

  • The recce car broke down on the recce so missed stages

  • Padding in base of seat to lift driver to see deemed not to be allowed at scrutineering so difficult to see on the rally

  • The first full day was crazy rough managed the pace and save the car

  • 2nd loop on the full day a massive thunderstorm broke out and made the stages treacherous on the narrow tracks

  • 3rd leg the stages wider allowing chance to get used to the car more

  • 2nd stage caught the car in front with a two-minute gap

  • 2nd loop of leg 3 had a hard landing, worrying about the car lasting

  • Coiluna, favourite stage the one Louise broke collar bone on and driveshaft in 2012

  • Last day, lots of noises in the car, a 15 minute gap to fourth tried to get it to the finish

  • Finish 3rd in RC4 class and WRC3

  • 8 x 3rd fastest times
