After twisty vineyard stages on rainy Friday followed by sun-baked concrete tracks on the infamous military area of Baumholder, the last day of Rallye Deutschland offered mixed conditions on four very fast stages in the Saarland area close to Lake Bostal.
With a fast and controlled drive Jan Kopecký / Pavel Dresler secured their overnight second place in WRC2 category. A possible win slipped through their fingers on Saturday when they suffered a puncture on the 42 kilometres long “Panzerplatte” stage on Baumholder.
