Toksport WRT’s British driver Chris Ingram retired from FIA ERC Rally Poland. A puncture followed by the power steering problem caused him a lot of time and he finished the first day 5th in ERC1 Junior. The young British duo started the second day with all the problems fixed and made the best times in ERC1 Junior until they had an overheating problem due to a sand blockage in the radiator. They tried to clean the radiator and fill with water again but Chris had his hand burned of hot radiator water causing him to retire for the rest of the rally. Chris is still leading the ERC1 Junior thanks to his big gap and he will run for the title at Rally di Roma.
The penultimate round of FIA ERC took place in Poland. Chris Ingram had his first international overall podium after the succesfull WRC Rally Turkey. After a 2 days long battle Ingram managed to finish the race in P3 overall. He said ” It’s amazing weekend, it’s our first international podium. We learned so much, we started from tenth place but we improved all the rally.” Orhan-Burcin duo was P11 after the last stage. He said he was happy to find the right setup for the car for next year.
