ERC champion Griebel a winner in Germany
Marijan Griebel, the back-to-back ERC Junior title winner, took his first victory in this season’s Deutsche Rallye Meisterschaft with first place on the ADAC Rallye Wartburg on Saturday.
Driving a Team Romo PEUGEOT 208 T16, Griebel took three wins on the opening leg on Friday and then resisted increasing pressure from Christian Riedemann (ŠKODA Fabia R5) to take top spot by 20 seconds.
“We have just given everything and I am particularly pleased for the entire team that we were able to clinch the victory here after a long dry spell,” said Griebel. “I am satisfied with my performance, it was almost perfect.”
