The last weekend was the first round of the rally de Tierra Aragon Championship.
A race in pinseque was made for the first time, and the whole town was eager to help.
This season I race with Clara Arboix as co-driver and I continue with my
Suzuki Swift Sport. One of the most reliable cars he ever piloted.
In the championship of Aragon, most of the races usually have a single
section in which it runs several times. This way there are no links
between the sections and can participate many cars .
The section of Pinseque was very fast and very slippery, with very very fast sections
and curves with gutters. In many interiors there were large ditches or cement
poles which had to be given great attention. One of my favorite areas was that of a
cemetery, through which we passed inside, with a lot of margin for error, it seemed that
we were inside a Gymkhana by Ken Block. After making the notes we knew that it
would not be an easy rally.
In the first special stage he was very good. The notes matched and we felt a
good feeling with the car. Little by little we were picking up rhythm.
In many of the fast corners we risk too much in trimming and we jump
over several ditches. In the part with the largest public we slid the car too
much and we did a spin without losing a lot of time. Even so, we did: 6: 51,800 P6 in class.
The second section we were more confident, the notes went very well.
We improved times, but not positions, falling on the P7 of our class.
The third and last section of this race was at the sunset, the sun and the dust made a
combination with which nothing was seen. Even so, trusting in the notes,
we made a good time securing the P7.
TC1: 6: 51.800 P6 en clase
TC2: 6: 35 000 P7 en la clase
TC3: 6: 30.100 P7 en clase
An incredible stretch, hopefully it will repeat itself next year.
