Von Thurn und Taxis: Polo ERC debut incredible
Albert von Thurn und Taxis described his debut in a Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 as “incredible”.
Von Thurn und Taxis switched to the new German machine for the high-speed gravel stages of Rally Liepāja and came through to finish P17 alongside Austrian co-driver Bernhard Ettel.
“I had had so much fun, it was incredible,” said von Thurn und Taxis. “I’m super-happy to be here with a clean car. It’s a fantastic rally for sure.”
Von Thurn und Taxis will get more experience of his Baumschlager Rallye & Racing-run Polo in the ERC when he contests Rally Poland from 28-30 June.
