NIKOLAY GRYAZIN TAKES SECOND PLACE IN RALLY MEXICO
The first start in the Mexican round of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship put the Russian driver on the WRC 2 podium

Nikolay Gryazin and his co-driver Yaroslav Fedorov debuted in Rally Mexico last weekend. A very tough rally at high altitude, the first WRC gravel round of the season became a new trial for the Russian crew, who had never competed in such conditions before.

The pair started at careful pace, focusing on perfecting their driving and trying to avoid issues. On Friday Nikolay and Yaroslav finished second in the WRC 2 category and eighth in the overall standings.

With its nine stages, Saturday became the last day of the rally, with organisers opting to conclude the event on the same day, forgoing Sunday's stages. Gryazin's crew focused on maintaining its second place, although the afternoon loop brought a number of incidents, starting with a rear right puncture on SS16, and picking up some damage two stages later, with which the Russians had to finish the rally.

Despite these difficulties, Gryazin finished the rally in second place in WRC 2, having scored some important points in the Championship where he is now second. In the overall Rally Mexico standings, Nikolay finished seventh.

"I am reasonably satisfied with our performance level this weekend, although we know we have more to come. For my first time in Rally México, I have felt OK. I drove carefully throughout the event; it was important to build up our experience.

I tried to avoid punctures, although there were a few moments, which slowed us down. We had some issues this afternoon, a puncture on SS16 (Guanajuatito) and picking up some damage on the Derramadero stage, with which we had to complete the rally. Thankfully, we were able to bring the car home in second place in WRC 2, which gives us valuable learning for the future events."
