Rally Talsi 2018

5/23/2018 12:00:00 AM

Such a cool rally for our team. Two young guns under our wing - Oliver Solberg and Adam Westlund.  


Rally Talsi is very special to our team because it is hosted right here in Latvia. 

This year the jumps were higher and the track had a very loose surface, so it was super dusty and extra fun. 


Oliver Solberg has a very good rally - he had good results right up to the  3rd stage - very clean driving style, no mistakes. 

I had a really good run, a very nice jump and right after that there was a 90 degrees turn that I took too late and we went into the ditch. -Oliver Solberg

This cost Oliver 9 minutes and 5 minutes penalty, also the car was damaged - so this ended his rally. 


A. Westlund had two test days with SRT right before the rally and had a good feeling about this track. 
And he did a great jog, finished second only 2 minuted after M.Sesks. 


Each rally I feel more confident with the car and my driving as well. It's fun to get a big smile of it - I love rally. 
- Adam Westlund
