Hungarian Baja 2008 Special-Newssection (FIA Baja Worldcup)

Hungarian Baja: Interviews after the fourth selective.

Korda Erik: I think I am starting to get used to the car. We had a puncture on the first selective, and the brake is still not working properly, and the mechanics are currently working on it. I am really tired. The tracks have some really enjoyable parts, but the bumpy parts of Jutaspuszta are just not my cup of tea.

Birnbauer Zoltán: The car runs properly, but the first two selectives were rather tests, as first I have to get used to the car, as I have just sat in it for the first time. The car needs also a lot of physical strength, and it really uses my energy. I do not know where we are, I am not following the up-to-date results, but I think that after the international field, we have the first place.

Lukács András: I feel perfectly now, the car is amazing, I like the track a lot. We have this really enjoyable battle with Baba in the championship for the third place. Yesterday I thought that a slower pace would be enough to beat him, but I was wrong. He proved today that he is an „old fox” and that he can show something new each time. We try to keep up the competition, and to get better, and this effort could be already seen on the fourth stage. There is still one round to go, so we will keep on trying.

Varga Imre: By the second stage I have started to wake up. The tracks are in a good condition, and this fourth is was my favourite. I would like to improve my speed even more. I hope that the race will be the same also next year.

Péter Géza: Unfortunately in this field we had to recognize again that the diesel engine is not sufficient for this race. This year there will be one more competition, on which I will go with this car, but next year we will have to find out something else. The tracks are great, but the hot weather requires a lot of energy from us. We are really tired.

Liszi László: The car is amazing, a lot better then mine. I really enjoy racing with it, which mirrors also in our results. There are still some reserves inside it. I would like to go faster on the last selective of today.

Fodor Imre: On the first selective, the front differential went wrong, and because of that we had to go with front-wheel drive for one hundred kilometres. On the third stage, the cardan-shaft broke away, we were hauled in the service, and they currently work on the Mitsubishi. We would like to continue with a forfait.
