Rally Mexico - after 2nd Leg

After the second Leg of Rally Mexico 2013, crew of Jipocar Czech National Team Martin Prokop and Michal Ernst with Ford Fiesta RS WRC are holding 9th position of the overall classification.

Martin Prokop comments: “The car works very well here but it took us a bit longer before we have found a good tyre choice and set-up. That meant not very good qualification and early position on the special stages for us. Today afternoon I was satisfied with everything including my performance but of course, in the overall classification I would like to see myself some two or three places higher.

My co-driver has been suffering with the high altitude as he was falling asleep during road sections and wasn´t very able to navigate me sometimes. I felt like driving a sick guy into the hospital. Quite fast. Not making a proper rally sport always. But he managed to survive the bad day and I want to say big thank you Michal! We have brought him into the hospital for check yesterday evening and now he has got his pills and oxygen mask so he is a bit like a pensioner on a sight-seeing trip

The race continues with last three special stages on Sunday.
