WATCH Mares rolls and carries on in Poland

Filip Mareš had the fans to thank for getting him back on track in Poland on Saturday morning.

The Czech rolled his Škoda Fabia Rally2 Evo 7.7km from the start of ORLEN 79th Rally Poland’s fourth stage. However, the relatively low-speed nature of he roll on a left-hand corner minimised the damage while the intervention of the spectators ensured his time loss was no more than 40sec.

“I was too fast, I was enjoying too much,” said Mareš, who also reported striking a hay bale before the stage finish.

Mareš arrived at midday service in 16th overall, 1min 17.2sec down on rally leader Hayden Paddon.
