EAST DURHAM, NEW YORK -- The two rallysprints held in East Durham, NY this past Saturday proved fortunate for the team of Piotr Motykiewicz and Grzegorz Dorman competing in Production class FWD Mitsubishi Mirage.
In the tricky not quite winter-like conditions it was hard keep the car on the road. Grip levels were constantly changing with the surface ranging from muddy gravel to a skating ice. "We left the road a couple of times but nothing serious", commented Piotr.
At the end of the day it turned out the team came in first in all 2WD classes and 7th overall. “That was quite a surprise to us when we saw the results. We won in Group 2 and Group 5 with much more powerful cars – something we never expected to do, especially considering that we went off two times and clipped a bank during the night stages. "We lost about 25 seconds in total, but I guess the competition had their offs too" said a very happy co-driver Grzegorz whose shoes and suit were all covered in mud.
Racing Thoughts Racing received a warm welcome in East Durham and would like to thank the Irish Motor Club for a well organized and smoothly run event.
