Clever driving could win the day, says Solberg
Story from www.wrc.com
Solberg, from Norway, is second in the WRC drivers’ standings following a strong start to his second stint with the Ford World Rally Team this season. He also boasts an impressive record in Greece, claiming his maiden career podium there in 2001 - the first of five from 11 starts - before he won the event in 2004.
“It’s the roughest round of the season, but we’ll see if it proves to be the toughest,” said the 2003 world champion, 37. “There are many big rocks in Greece and that’s what makes the rally so tricky. I learned a lot about rough road driving when Kenya’s Safari Rally was part of the championship, and that’s useful for Greece. You have to be smart with your driving in this type of event.”
“The rough roads and heat are also hard for the tyres,” Solberg continued. “But Michelin’s tyres have been strong this year so I’m confident they’ll be good here also. I had some bad luck on the last two rounds, but still scored good championship points after driving at 110 per cent to climb back up the order. Hopefully I can have a clean run and keep the points coming.”
