After a very though race, the pilot Kalin Benchev and co-driver Alexander Spirov from “ Dunev Racing Team” took the first place in the third Rally Sprint for 2014 racing season!

My mechanics managed brilliant preparation. During the race I didn’t have any problems, except the drive shaft which was not replaced by my fault. The discipline of Rally is brand new for me and my team, and some mistakes are fact. For the next race we won’t make any technical changes on the car, we will rely on better physical training and better knowledge of the track.

On the first Super Special Stage on Saturday the team managed 1st place for the stage after very attractive driving, as fans and pilots later said. The stages which K. Benchev and Al. Spirov drove for first time in their racing career was extremely dangerous, technical and various. Stage SS8 “ Devina” contains many different types of ground: gravel, asphalt , water, fraction, jumps and various types of corners. The race car of the team is a good known Subaru Impreza GC8, with which the team took the second place on the winter Rally Sprint Borovetz- Samokov. On the start of the second stage “ Devina” broke the drive shaft. The team continued the race on 3 wheels drive, which made the task even harder. Apart of the technical problem, K. Benchev and Al. Spirov managed to get to the final with very good time which guide them to the highest place on the podium. They took cups for 1st place in general ranking and first place in Group Ranking. This left the second in their group I. Petkov on 2:08:80 minutes behind for 50 km distance . The second team of “ Dunev Racing team” : Docho Tzvyatkov/ Linda Bagerova get to the 2nd place in their group and contributed for the 1st place in the Team Ranking.

We assure that all fans can wait for the team of STi.bg and their Subaru on the next Rally Sprint “Peshtera” on 9-10.07.2014 where the team will defend the title and will be even better prepared.
