Scandinavian Rally 2016 won!
Back home now, after a relaxed 1500 km ride…
It was a nice rally through the South of Sweden, my planning on quick roads made it a fast one as I could use a lot of motorways. But also a lot of back roads. Closed roads. Gravel roads. Winding roads. Roads with rabbits. Roads with hares. Roads with moose (!). I had developed a good plan and just needed to execute it. This worked quite well, but many locations required me in the picture as well…I missed in three of them but managed to re-do two of them. However, I had lost a big point and I knew this could be decisive in the end…I performed my plan in an very efficient manner and at one point I was almost two hours (!) ahead of my plan. This allowed me to extend my plan with two smaller locations that in the end made all the difference (again!). Petri Myntti came third and Daniel Duvskog, – who missed his chance by overlooking a second location close to another one – came second. Phew! Another close shave! Another rally won. A good weekend :-).
Wenn du so weiter machst, lassen sie den Marcel Hirscher der Ausdauerrallys bald nicht mehr mittun – gratuliere!
Close shave indeed – but you did win, that is what matters.
I am happy that the step down to number two was so small. This prooves that we are all getting better, and that you still need to improve in order to be able to stay on top.
I guess you are not to depressed over that… 🙂
…and, to really rub it in – Daniels missed out bonus location was actually in the town of Växjö, Daniels own birth town.
Man muss sich aber schon fragen, warum all die anderen chancenlosen Fahrer bei den IBR-Rallys überhaupt noch antreten… 😉
Respekt und Du legst Deine Messlatte immer höher.
