Two from two as Polonski aces ERC Abarth Rally Cup
Dariusz Poloński claimed the Abarth Rally Cup honours for the second event running with a comfortable category win in Latvia.
Starting Rally Liepāja on the back of winning the Pirelli-equipped series for the Abarth 124 rally on Poland’s season opener last month, Pole Poloński was never truly threatened by his Czech rival Martin Rada for a convincing victory alongside co-driver Łukasz Sitek.
“We are very happy to reach the finish because it was a very difficult rally, especially for the rear-wheel-drive cars, the gravel rallies are quite difficult, so we did our best,” Poloński said. “Today we had a good pace and I’m really happy with our performance and also our car performance. It sounds good to have two wins on gravel. We were trying to check ourselves compared to the ERC2 class, but it was not easy with the four-wheel-drive cars. I’m looking forward to the Tarmac rallies and hope we will be faster compared to them.”
