Stage wins and never dropping out of a tip 3 in a other
stages. Roma had another reason to smile: Roma final competed during a

earnings to win again!

 

Roma and Haro didn’t have it all their possess way. They were pushed to
a unequivocally finish by associate MINI Family organisation of Jakub “Kuba” Przygonski
(POL) and co-driver Tom Colsoul (BEL). In fact, it was a young
Polish star that non-stop a scoring by holding a win in a Super
Special Stage that kick-started dual days of rival racing.

a feeling of racing a automobile again. Kuba did a unequivocally good job; he is
unequivocally quick and for us it was unequivocally formidable doing a Baja speeds
after Silk Way Rally, though we are happy. The group did a super job, I
did some kilometres with Alex and a MINI John Cooper Works Rally
worked unequivocally well, that is a many critical thing.”

 

Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski: “It was utterly a wily race
with a lot of H2O splashes. We were fighting with Nani and we almost
kick him, that was nice. Because Nani is a unequivocally gifted driver
with Dakar victory, it’s unequivocally good to have a possibility to contest with
him. The MINI John Cooper Works Rally was unequivocally good. In a last
stage, we risked a lot and we roughly did it. We got a few unequivocally long
H2O splashes, roughly flitting a H2O but touching it. The
points are good, we are happy and a subsequent competition will be my home race,
Baja Poland.”
