Atko quotes: Leg 2
- 13th August 2006, 6:45am
Chris Atkinson finished day two in Germany in 10th place.
"Overall the day has been good. It’s a shame we gave away some time on the first stage, when we didn’t have such a good feeling in the car, but things improved steadily after that. The Baumholder stage was pretty tough, the surface was loose in places and it’s hard to judge the grip levels – especially on slicks," he said.
"Skating along the road in fifth gear, centimetres from those Hinkelsteins is not ideal! But on the last stage out in the fields (SS14) we did a pretty good time. Tomorrow we’ll do what we can, I’m looking forward to the smoother roads of Leg three; they should suit us better."
