PODIUM FINISH ON RALI TERRAS D’ABOBOREIRA

Chris Ingram and his co-driver Ross Whittock won a podium finish on Rali Terras d’Aboboreira last weekend on only his second drive since winning the FIA European Rally Championship title two years ago.

Commenting on their performance, Ingram said: “Two weeks ago I made my rally comeback in Croatia. A huge moment for the whole team, I wanted to pick up from where Ross and I left off when we won the ERC. I struggled like never before after such a long layoff and the relentlessness of rally life, aiming for perfection corner after corner, stage after stage was a huge shock to the system physically and mentally.

“Not much can prepare your brain for the World Rally Championship apart from driving at that level consistently and I’ve not been doing any proper driving for a very, very long time.

“One week later, we’ve bounced back to take our first podium with the team on my first drive on gravel in almost two years against top level competition.

“Shaking off the rust, as well as beating the nerves and anxiety of that first drive back was a bigger win than I could’ve hoped for. Bring on our next massive challenge on Rallye de Portugal in two weeks.”

Adam Shore, Director of Rally Warrior added: “ We’re really pleased to have our first podium for Rally Warrior. We’re a new team and it certainly shows that the more time Chris has behind the wheel, the better. We’ll certainly look to build on this momentum for Rally Portugal.”
