Brad Markovic in tight ARC battle after Forest Rally
- 2nd May 2018, 12:59pm
“The Maximum Motorsport team did a great job fixing the car and getting us back out in time.”Sunday’s stages also saw a great battle between Markovic and Asia-Pacific Rally Championship driver Mike Young. After the mornings five forest stages, the pair were in equal overall time. But during the final three stages Markovic moved ahead, claiming first in the Western Australian Rally Championship and second in ARC2. “I think after the collision with the ‘roo we lost a little bit of confidence on the next pass of Brockman, and Mike Young started to catch up. So we really had to push on the final few stages to stay ahead.
"Overall it was a pretty good result. It would have been great to keep the ARC2 lead, but Glen is a really experienced rally driver and has won this round previously."We minimised the points lost to him, plue we snared equal 6th for the outright ARC points. So I’m pretty happy with that.” The Australian Rally Championship now heads back to the east coast of Australia, with the National Capital Rally starting on 1 June. As well being round three of the ARC, the Canberra-based event is also a round of the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship, providing the opportunity for local crews to compete against teams from round the world.
