Pedro Antunes said his fifth place in FIA ERC3 Junior on PZM 76th Rally Poland helped to make up for a tough event for the FPAK Portugal Team ERC driver.

National federation-backed Antunes was back in his more familiar Peugeot after trying Fiesta power for size in Latvia. But it was a tough Poland debut with a heavy practice crash and a sensor issue masking his true pace at the wheel of his Pirelli-equipped entry.

“It was not the best rally for me because of all the problems, but I liked the rally a lot and enjoyed the gravel stages,” said Antunes. “We were happy to be in the end of the rally and fifth place is not bad for everything that happened.”
