Rally Team Just in Lower Saxony

It was not the best weather with which the city of Osterode in the Harz region welcomed more than 40 participants of the Rally Lower Saxony last weekend (September 08 / 09, 2017). Light but constant rain and gray clouds in the sky provided a rather restrained enthusiasm among drivers and the public in the run-up of the event. However, the spectacular race with its 14 special stages could completely dispel the depressed mood. The Rally Team Just was very satisfied with its first and second place. The individual reports:

Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder

With their Citroen C2 R2 max, Florian Just and his co-pilot Marco Schönfelder wanted to build on the results of the Thüringen Rallye. For this, it was necessary to master many fast cut curves in Osterode, which was not an easy task because of the constant rainfall and the muddy roads. Florian and Marco, however, came well through the individual special stages and fought their way forward in division 5. Shortly before the end, they had reached the first place, with just 10 seconds ahead. Disciplined and confident, they managed to keep this rank successfully until the end of the Rally Lower Saxony. The bluechemGROUP congratulates on this excellent result!

Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk

The Suzuki Swift Sport Gr.N by Tobias Just and his co-pilot Sabrina Türk, who once again stood in fo Lisa Kiefer, had to fight with the slippery and muddy track conditions. Accordingly, the start on Friday evening was somewhat restrained. After the first stage, Tobias and Sabrina were still in 2nd place in division 6. On Saturday the speed was then clearly increased, which led to more successes. The Swift was able to pick up three divisionary minimum times, which brought Tobias and Sabrina closer to the victory. This dream did not come true, however, since they lost a lot of time due to a technical fault, which made no switching possible. In the end, it became a conciliatory second place in division 6 – congratulations!

As an official sponsor, the bluechemGROUP wishes maximum success for the 3-Cities-Rally, the last event in the German Rally Masters (DRM) and the ADAC Rally Masters.
