Rally Team Just @ Sulinger Bärenklaue

The predictions for the second round of the ADAC Rally Masters were outstanding: with its sunny weather conditions, the ADAC Rally Around the Sulinger Bärenklaue (May 4-5, 2018) promised to be a perfectly suitable event to chase after best times. After the icy tracks at the Rally Saarland-Palatinate, the Rally Team Just here awaited the usual grippy ground on which it could prove its skills perfectly. Florian had planned to build on his results from the last race. Tobias, on the other hand, wanted to show that he could also reach the front with the new car. Both pilots successfully reached their goals. In the end, Florian finished in 4th place and Tobias in 3rd place in Division 5.

Friday, May 4, 2018: Battle with the gravel

A total of 70 starters competed on the first day of the Rally Around the Sulinger Bärenklaue to face the demanding 30 special stages. In Division 5, which also includes Tobias and Florian Just, there were a total of 14 teams. For Florian and his co-driver Marco Schönfelder the opening day started very successfully. Despite limited visibility from the low sun and the dust on the gravel passages, for which the course is very well known, the duo secured the desired times and placed fourth. Florian's brother Tobias Just and his co-driver Sabrina Türk also had a good start. They reached Top 3 times in the special stages and finished third at the end of the day.

Saturday, May 5, 2018: Time chase

On the final day of the second round of the ADAC Rally Masters 2018, the remaining 120 special stage kilometers had to be mastered. Once again, the route led through the famous IVG site, a former industrial area with countless lanes and alleyways that run partly through houses and halls and are already overgrown with moss and grass. Florian started again with good times and was able to reduce the gap to his brother constantly. Shortly before the end, however, he had slight problems with his accelerator pedal, which ultimately cost too much time. He finished fourth and got 12 points. Tobias and Sabrina faced their own fight against time. From special stage to special stage, they moved up towards the second place but ultimately had to give up by 1.5 seconds. Therefore, it was rank 3 with 15 points.

Current score:

  Run 1 Run 2 Total
Florian Just / Marco Schönfelder Place 3 / 15 Points Place 4 / 12 Points 27 Points / Place 5
Tobias Just / Sabrina Türk Place 4 / 12 Points Place 3 / 15 Points 27 Points / Place 5

 

The bluechemGROUP as an official sponsor congratulates Florian and Tobias on the results and looks forward to the next run on May 25-26, 2018 in Zwickau at the AvD-Saxony Rally.
