LUCKY NUMBER 13 FOR HABIG?
Crews for the 2012 WRC Wales Rally of Great Britain kicked off today with scrutineering and the running of the qualifying stage. The qualifying stage is run to determine the starting order for the event. “It’s taking some time to understand how to optimise the tyre and suspension settings of the Ford,” said Habig after qualifying 13th
. Typically of the weather, the rain tap was turned on and off during qualifying.
“The stage was very fast, so you are basically in sixth-gear, followed by two yumps into a 90 right – braking and setting the car up for a 90 right took some precision driving. Tomorrow we will spend the morning adjusting the pace notes and be a little less conservative, after realising the car is capable of much faster speeds,” he added.
Tomorrow afternoon will see the ceremonial start at which the drivers will choose their starting positions, with the first special stage starting on Friday morning.
