Perfect beginning at the Saarland-Pfalz-Rally
Rain, Storm and slick roads. Not the best conditions for Philip Geipel and his rally start at the German Rally Championship in St. Wedel last weekend. The heavy rain on Saturday caused difficult track conditions and a special challenge for all driver.
Philip and co-pilot Katrin Becker mastered the track in the Skoda R5 of Kahle Motorsport brilliantly and raced among the 5 fastest teams in eight special stages. Eventually, the team attained the fourth place in the overall ranking and is overjoyed with the start of the German Rally Championship. “A sensational result for the season kick-off. I would like to thank the team of Kahle Motorsports for providing me the great car. Katrin did a great job. I’m so happy to be there.” said Philip visibly pleased.
Next stage is the Sachsen-Rallye in Zwickau on 24th and 25th May 2019. Philip is looking forward this race, because it is his home round.
