Oct 01, 2015

Special stages of 42. Croatia rally which will be held on friday and saturday in Porec and it’s surroundings will offer a fight of leader and thirdplaced in FIA European Rally Trophy Murat Bostanci of Turkey and Rok Turk of Slovenia. They will both be competing in R5 cars, and one of the best Croatian drivers Juraj Sebalj will try to keep up with them in Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX. At the press conference Sebalj announced:

“It will be all or nothing for me, I want to see if I can win guys in R5 cars. This is the most difficult Croatia rally by now. Sections of Special Stages are narrow and fast with plenty of jumps, crests and different layers of tarmac where it’s easy to get a puncture.”

Murat Bostanci has hundred percent performance iz European Rally Trophy this season – four starts and four wins, but at Croatia Rally he will be chasing fourth place:

“I’m sorry to announce you wont be seeing me pushing to much because our rival Rashid Al Ketbi is not here. He is second in the championship and if we finish at fourth place we will win the European Rally Trophy Champions. Hopefully it will be a fun rally for us and all spectators.”

Croatia Rally has coefficient 4 for FIA ERT Championship and Rok Turk can win second place in standings in Croatia. It will be his second time this season to compete in Peugeot 208 R5:

“Istrian Special Stages are well known to us. Bostanci will meet here in Croatia what we already met in Ireland few months ago, but with his experience i don’t think he will have any problems. For us and all other crews this rally will be very interesting.”

Deputy Major of Porec Nadia Stifanic Dobrilovic wished all participants of 42. Croatia rally a warm welcome:

“We are happy to have this event once again in our City. It is an opportunity to promote our enviroment as turist destination and to promote our overall tourist offer.”

Four Special Stages will be held west of Porec on Friday late afternoon and evening. Eight more SS’s will be held on Saturday in the vicinity of Buzet. In the evening of both competitive days entertainment programme will be organized. The performers are Let 3 and Magic Seventy band.
