Gus Greensmith testing for WRC CER

15. lokak. 2023

We decided to participate in Rally Vsetin as preparation for CER WRC. We had a very good two days of testing with two completely different roads and weather. Day 1 was in the forest, very narrow, fast but also technical and with overnight rain the conditions were very slippery. The surface also had many different types of tarmac. Day 2 was open wider, very fast and consistent grip. We didn’t drive that many kilometers as we only focused on trying many different setup options with both differentials and dampers.

We found two base setups for different road type conditions, something we are going to have in CER. Test was very productive and we still had the rally to confirm all that we had learned. Rally Vsetin was a really good rally. Well organized and run. Three stages repeated which allowed us to try both setups and get valuable data in rally conditions.

Gus and Jonas won every single stage and the rally also obviously. We are now best prepared for the last rally of our season in two weeks time. We still have one more test day next Saturday just to confirm all we have learned. It's been a great week working as a team. Toksport mechanics did a great job as they always do, was not the easiest test with so many changes.

Really looking forward to the rally. Before that I will have two different coaching sessions. One in Poland and one in Bulgaria. I have never been to Bulgaria before so it will be a very interesting visit.
