APRC practice session
PRESS RELEASE | 9 AUGUST 2017

5 APRC drivers took part in the practice session this morning at the Tai Tak plantations. The drivers Gaurav Gill, Ole Chritian Vieby, Jari Ketoma, Mike Young and Yuya Sumiyama all took to the 2km wet and damp stage. Heavy overnight rain made it slippery but it didn¡¯t stop the drivers from driving the rally cars at competition speed. Driver¡¯s quotes right after their practice runs.

Yuya Sumiya. Cusco Racing Skoda Fabia R5
Its Yuya¡¯s first experience driving a Skoda Fabia R5 after switching from the Subaru Impreza. ¡°Car is very fast and light. More power and better balance¡±. Cusco Racing hope that he will finish as high as possible this weekend. It¡¯s a good car but there is a lot to learn about it.

Ole Christian Vieby. Team MRF Skoda Fabia R5
Its Ole¡¯s first time in Malaysia. ¡°It¡¯s different and a lot of junctions. Seen nothing like it. It is going to be the difficult rally for me this year. You really need good pace notes to do well here.¡± He added

Jari Ketomaa. Mpart Sport Mitsubishi Mirage R5
Jari¡¯s second time in the event. And after finishing second here last year. He is confident that he can do well again this year. ¡°The car has a little bit more power than it did last year and I have a good feeling with the car and hope I can win¡±.

Sanjey Takale. Mpart Sport Mitsubishi Mirage R5
Sanjey Takale was present at the practice session minus his rally car as the car is still awaiting custom clearance. He however sat in the co-driver¡¯s seat with Jari Ketomaa. ¡°It¡¯s a fantastic little car. I am really looking forward to drive it here and learn as much as I can quickly.

Early Tomorrow morning the competitors will began reconnaissance of the rally stages.
