Moffett Impresses in Poland

Posted: August 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

Josh Moffett, ably navigated by James Fulton, finished a fine 8th overall on last weekend’s Rzeszow Rally in Poland. The pair piloted the Combilft backed Fiesta R5 to a solid top ten result which was 4th amongst the Under 28 Category in the European Rally Championship.

 

The Rzeszow Rally is an extremely specialised event with some of the fastest and most committed tarmac roads in Europe. The Monaghan/Cavan pair settled into a solid 9th place over the opening two 20km stages mixing it with the local crews. Josh found the speed of the stages particularly challenging. After another two tests, Moffett maintained 9th overnight. Six stages made up day two and Moffett continued to up his pace with a 6th fastest time on stage eight being a highlight. A consistent final loop brought them back in 8th place and 4th amongst the ERC under 28 crews. Josh was thankful to his service crew for setting up the car for the challenging tests.

 

The pair’s next event will be the classic Barum Ziln Rally in the Czech Rep.
