The third day of the Rally Monte Carlo, the crew of the Russian team Arctic Energy World Rally Team finished in fifth position in class, finishing in the top three on each stage. Five special stages Deividas Jocius and Donatas, Zvicevicius moved up seven positions.
Already on the first special stage the third day of the race, Deividas showed great pace and finished in second place in its class. As in the previous day, had to overtake slower crews. When overtaking one of them at a very narrow segment Deividas even off the road! But was able to return to finish overtaking and finish, showing a second time in class.
Thanks to accurate information and the correct choice of tire crew of the Russian team Arctic Energy World Rally Team consistently showed the second-third time on the special stages, ahead of the French crew – the regulars of these runs. This allowed us to climb from 12th to fifth position in class and to take 23rd place in the General classification.
“Today the day was much more positive, said pilot Arctic Energy World Rally Team Deividas Jocius. Tomorrow we will have a more advantageous position. Unfortunately, a fine received on the first day, pushed us too far away from a podium spot. Therefore, we will pass the first two stages and then decide if it is possible to fight for the podium, little more to add. Our main goal remains the same — finish in this rally”.
In the fourth and final day of the Rally Monte Carlo, crews will need to pass only four special stages with a total length of 63 km. Among them, the double passage of the La Bollene Vesubie – Peira Cava length of 18 km, which passes through the Col de Turini. This is branded and very dangerous stage of a series of “must do”, the icing on the cake entitled “Rally Monte Carlo”. Finish of the rally in Palace square and Prince’s Palace of Monaco, where the Prince of Monaco albert II personally congratulated the first round of the world fastest racers on the planet.
