Slovenian i20 R5 crew dominate latest national event
Rok Turk dominated the Rally Vipavska dolina (June 25-26), winning seven of the weekend’s nine stages in his Hyundai Slovenia-sponsored i20 R5. The defending Slovenian rally champion, Turk stamped his authority on the rally from the very start, going over ten seconds faster than his nearest competitor on the opening run. He extended his advantage through the following kilometres, building a lead of nearly 30 seconds before the final service ahead of the final two tests. A final stage win on the penultimate run bolstered the margin at the top to over 40 seconds for the finish.
The event was the second in busy few weeks for Turk and co-driver Viljem Ošlaj, who also romped to victory by nearly five minutes on the INA Delta Rally (June 11-13) in Croatia after winning every stage on the itinerary.
