    First overall victory for the Polo, from Johan Kristoffersson in Romjulsrally.
    https://www.ewrc-results.com/results...ulsrally-2018/

    A lot of testing for all, both on tires and new co drivers.
    Grøndal got some gremlins, and chose not to drive.

    But a win is a win. Johan is an impressive driver, lets see what 2019 will bring him.

    Hmmm... I don't know... Is it so impressive? He was only 4 minutes quicker than Anders Kjær in his old Volkswagen Golf II. Don't you think that Kristofferson has overpayed for his new car?

    80 km and 4 minutes is quite sufficient...though i`m not sure, if it is "Kristoferson-perfect".

    Confirmed! The ‘Portuguese’ Polo (chassis 9) came to Pedro Meireles, 2014 national rally champ; a second unit was also ordered by M&Costas (Meireles family company and a big VW dealer) and will be delivered in June, probably to be used by his older brother Paulo (a strong title contender in the 90’s and 00’s). Congrats to them!

    It's nice seeing how many of these Polo sales have been to customers who don't already own other R5s. If I'm correct, Meireles has only rented cars from TokSport for the last couple of years?

    Well, 1 min 11 sec quicker than FT Larsen in Fiesta, says something ... but not everything.

    I think Meireles always had his own car.

    Nothing more wrong. He sold to KG who sold to Toksport the cars. He allways own those cars (when rally).
