European Rally Trophy event Rally Bulgaria this past weekend consisted of 196 kilometers of hot Bulgarian tarmac and 14 special stages. Slovenian crew Rok Turk and Blanka Kacin were there and did well. They took on the fast and rather bumpy roads aggressively and after two days of racing finished in 5th place overall and in 2nd place among 2WD.
They were fastest in RC4 class and throughout the rally competed against cars from higher classes:
It was a real pleasure to be back here in Bulgaria, after 2011 when Blanka and I first raced here together. High average speeds and demanding special stages present a real pleasure for us drivers. The ceremonial start and finish of the rally in Samokov and many spectators created an excellent atmosphere. With our R2 racing car of OPV team, Blanka and I raced among strong competition throughout the whole rally. Our team did a great job and we are very pleased with the outcome.
