Bastien Bergounhe bagged a Clio Trophy by Toksport WRT best on Barum Czech Rally Zlín – and then thanked the fans for the atmosphere they created on the stages.
The French youngster finished second to Andrea Mabellini in the arrive-and-drive category for the Clio Rally5 on MICHELIN tyres, which bettered his previous best result of third on the season-opening ORLEN 77th Rally Poland in June.
“It was a great rally with amazing fans around the stages and everywhere,” said Bergounhe, who is co-driven by compatriot Mathieu Descharne. “We enjoy it a lot and thank you for this. It was difficult with a lot of possibilities to go out of the road but we are here at the finish with our best result so it’s okay.”
Heading to the double-points Clio Trophy by Toksport WRT finale on Rally Hungary next month, Bergounhe is fourth in the standings.
