Rally - Fast in Poland

Volkswagen ended the opening day of the flat-out fiesta that is the Rally Poland in first, second and third place. After 155.04 of 313.53 kilometres against the clock, the Polo WRCs of S├ębastien Ogier, Andreas Mikkelsen and Jari-Matti Latvala are separated by just 10.8 seconds.

The Friday was “typical Rally Poland”, plenty of flat-out sections on country lanes and rural roads, as well as sections through forests and towns. with handpicked junctions, provided the expected high-speed thrills.

With an average speed of 131.09 km/h, Friday’s first special stage, ‘Gorklo’ was the fastest stage of the 2015 WRC season, and was not far off being the fastest stage in recent WRC history. That came at the same event last year: back then, an average speed of 136.88 kilometres per hour was clocked on the ‘Wieliczki’ special stage. This year’s competitors will tackle a slightly modified version of the same stage on tomorrow!
