 Made up of a succession of crossroads, a wide section and finishing on the large corners of a gravel circuit, the Rally de Portugal shakedown was varied… without particularly reflecting the characteristics of the event itself.



Craig  and Scott  completed five passes. On their third attempt, they set the thirteenth fastest time, a tenth of a second behind their team-mates.



- Later on this afternoon, the crews will drive onto the Guimarães podium for the ceremonial start of the rally. The first stage will be contested this evening on the Lousada rallycross circuit from 7.03pm (GMT+1). The cars will then enter parc ferme for the night.


 


Craig Breen

"It was a pretty positive morning, although I would've liked to have been a little bit quicker. But you have to keep things in perspective, given the very unusual nature of this shakedown! We made quite a few changes to the set-up midway through the morning and some of the modifications were beneficial. Now I just can’t wait to get started!"
