Competition revs up in Germany

Competition revs up in Germany

After the ceremonial start in front of the iconic Porta Nigra and the first day of racing is set to get underway here in Trier with competition set to be intense. We are expecting high road temperatures and minimal rain so the crews will have to manage their DMACK tires sensibly.

Current trophy leader Marius Aasen of Norway is as ever calm and collected saying "I'm really trying not to think about the championship, I'm just going rally by rally and trying to not push too much and make sure we get through all the stages."

2014 Rallye Deutschland Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy winner Tom Cave is hoping to close the narrow gap at the top. The British driver said "I'm feeling confident going into the first day here in Germany. I'll be using the experience we gained last year to try and edge ahead."

Max Vatanen of Finland currently lies only one point adrift in third and will apply his growing asphalt confidence to this weekends stages. Commenting on the surface change he said "You still need to drive in a committed way to maintain a rhythm and I’m getting more confident on this surface."

Our first crew is set to take the stage at 9.54 so keep up to date with events at our Twitter page...
