Authentic exhibition and driving recital of the Spanish driver while on track. Solans made clear to his rivals the great level of piloting and maturity he has achieved in recent times after having crowned last season as Junior World Champion, and has shown that he asks for a step to fight for a position in the big teams of the panorama World Cup in WRC2. It is undoubtedly a very close category, where great drivers are very fast and it is difficult to follow the rhythm of the head; but the young Spanish rider has shown sufficient ability to get, but a position as an official driver, a semi-official seat for next season.
After the problem of the penalty of forty seconds in the day yesterday by failure of the co-pilot, who confused the time of entry to one of the time controls of one of the sections and as a result entered four minutes after the scheduled time; this morning they suffered a new penalty when they left the Service Park towards the first stage of the day, to arrive four minutes late also with respect to the time they had initially assigned, because of a last minute failure in the car they had to pay quickly team mechanics. With all this the team came out with some tension to dispute the stages today, willing to make up for lost time, but a runway exit has truncated the options of having made the comeback. An error on the part of the pilot (who has recognized the own Solans in an interview granted to Revista Scratch) in a note that was not quite well taken, has propitiated the strong rollover that they have suffered and that has left quite battered the Ford Fiesta R5 , although fortunately without physical consequences for driver and co-driver.
With almost thirty rallies held so far in the World Championship, he already has considerable experience, has proved to be a very fast driver and that in very favorable terrain for the Czech Jan Kopecký and the official Skoda Motorsport team has managed to even mark a scratch, two seconds to only three tenths of the Czech in each of the stages and end the day less than five seconds from the lead.
After his participation in Germany, Solans will be back at the wheel of the Ford Fiesta R5 next October in the home test, the Rally Catalunya. He will try to play a great role against his fans, in a test that knows the terrain very well since he has played previously five times and will have one more chance to demonstrate his speed and potential within the WRC2 again.
