The MINI All4Racing crews of Mikko Hirvonen (FIN)/ Michel Périn (GER) and Orlando Terranova (ARG)/Tom Colsoul (BEL) raced in Spain’s Baja Aragon. Both pairings secured a top five finish with Hirvonen finishing in third position overall and Terranova two places behind in a closely-fought fifth.
Both drivers were among the quickest during the Special Stages on Saturday, with Hirvonen ending the day in second position and Terranova in fourth. However, Sunday saw both drivers drop back a position in the overall standings.
Hirvonen: “We had a good weekend. I wanted to pressurise Carlos on Sunday as he was just two minutes ahead; we made good progress until we had a puncture. Unfortunately, this offered Nasser the opportunity to also pass us. But we nonetheless made it to the podium.”
