David Bogie and Kevin Rae finished the first full day (Friday) of Dayinsure Wales Rally GB in 17th place overall and 5th in the RC2 class in their Skoda Fabia just 8 seconds behind Eyvind Brynilsdsen and ahead of Pierre-Louis Loubet which is pretty damn good considering the pace of these WRC regulars.
At the overnight halt, David said: “that was a nice day’s work. I stayed out of trouble. The stages are good although the surfaces are polished, so it’s easy to slide under braking and turning in. The last stage (Hafren 2) was a bit rough so I stayed in the middle of the road.” And after the three hour road run from the last stage to the Deeside Service Park halt, he stepped out stretched his legs and pulled his breeks, before adding: “After that last road section I’ve just about got feeling back into my ass!”
