Remennik heads Alonso in ERC2 thriller
Sergey Remennik holds a slender lead of 0.4s in the battle to win the FIA European Rally Championship’s ERC2 category.
After three stages, the Russian heads Juan Carlos Alonso following Thursday’s three stages having gone fastest twice compared to the Argentine’s solitary stage success.
“It’s so exciting,” said Remennik. “We’re so close to each other, it will be a really good fight. It doesn’t matter how many cars are around us, you just need him to race.”
Alonso added: “It’s wonderful. We get more confidence kilometre after kilometre and it’s better for us. Tomorrow will be a long day, we are there to fight and it’s a nice fight with Sergey.
