Rally Team Just @ Saxony Rally

The AvD Saxony Rally (May 25 / 26, 2018) in Zwickau, Germany, ended last Saturday in front of an enthusiastic audience and in brilliant sunshine. A total of 96 teams competed at the almost 130 km long circuit with its 12 special stages, which has been established in the ADAC Rally Masters for many years. The rally is characterized by numerous fast and demanding, but also risky sections. The highlights are the city tour over the "Glück-auf"-bridge, the circuit "Stangengrün" and the royal test "Plohn" with about 19 km in length through forests, villages and small agricultural paths.
The Rally Team Just with Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk and Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder wanted to continue the successes of the last races for the third round of the ADAC Rally Masters. The summary:

Friday, May 25, 2018: a neck-and-neck race

Despite considerable competition (21 other participants), Florian and Tobias dominated the opening day of the AvD Saxony Rally in Division 5. Three of the four special stages finishes Tobias in his Citroen C2 R2 max with the division best time. Close behind is every time his teammate Florian, also on the way with a Citroen C2 R2 max. In SS1, the older brother even manages to be a little bit faster. The Friday in Zwickau, Saxony, ended with second place for Florian Just and his co-driver Marco Schönfelder and first place for Tobias Just and his co-driver Sabrina Türk – excellent prospects for the following race day!

Saturday, May 26, 2018: Early decision

The second day of the AvD Saxony Rally also started with an exciting head-to-head race between the Just brothers. Florian and Tobias were in second and third place up to the eighth special stage. However, they fought their way forward until finally after WP8, they ranked 1st and 2nd. Then the unthinkable happened. On the way to the next special stage, Florian's car does not work anymore. Any repair measures are useless. The electronics strike and stop the whole engine. Unfortunately, the race, which started so promisingly, was over early for Florian Just and Marco Schönfelder. Things looked quite different with Tobias Just and Sabrina Türk. They put on a mad final spurt and got the division victory with a clear lead.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Run 3 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points DNF (Did not finish) 27 Points / Place 7
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points Place 1 / 25 Points 52 Points / Place 3

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and is already looking forward to the next race on June 15 / 16, 2018 in Lübbecke at the Rally Stemweder Berg.
