Pole Polonski apart from Rada in ERC Abarth Rally Cup
Dariusz Poloński fought back from a damaged right-rear tyre to complete Friday’s action as the Abarth Rally Cup leader on Rally Liepāja.
The Pole, who heads the one-make category following his victory on ORLEN 77th Rally Poland last month, holds a clear margin ahead of his Czech rival Martin Rada, who claimed top Abarth Rally Cup honours on Rally Liepāja last season.
“We had a big problem at the end of the first loop with the rear tyres and we had a right-rear puncture and lost a lot of time,” said Poloński. “The left-rear tyre was also really used but the second loop was much better. We didn’t attack so much so it was very good for us, nice and calm.”
Rada said: “We are here at the finish, that is the most important thing.”
