29.5.2018 - Janne Eronen second in Finnish Rallysprint Championship series after tarmac events

Four of six Finnish Rallysprint series is now driven and flying Finn Janne Eronen is holding second position in official standings as there are still two gravel events to be driven.

Highslide JSIn February drivers measured their speed on two snow events and in May they faced two tarmac events. In snow rounds Janne Eronen was able to keep up excellent pace with his Skoda Fabia R5 car but in tarmac events drivers who drove with rally cars which are build for tarmac surface, were lots faster than regular rally cars and drivers.

However as drivers collect Championship points by group, Janne Eronen is in steady silver position as there are still two gravel rounds to go.

In tarmac events RTE-Motorsport driver made a economic solution to drive tarmac events with gravel suspension and therefore he wasn't able to match his speed against his fellow competitors. However he still was able to collect podium positions in both gravel events as he was two times third fastest. In third round of the series he lost the victory by 1,45 seconds and in second round he was nearly three seconds slower.

- I made a reasonable decision not to purchase a tarmac surface for this gravel-based rally car. Before the first tarmac round I practiced my skills on tarmac surface driving with gravel suspension and it all felt good, Eronen told about his preparations.

- Car and tyres worked as best as they could. However I'm more keen to drive on snow and on gravel surface than tarmac and therefore I suffered lack of peformance. However when considering the circumstances and comparing those to results I can say that two times third positions were the best result I could have accomplished on tarmac surface and I'm happy for that fact that I'm in second position in overall classifications before final two rounds which will suit a lot better for me than tarmac, Eronen concludes.

Unofficial Finnish Rallysprint Championship series standings after 4/6 rounds:
1. Tomi Tukiainen 47,5
2. Janne Eronen 37,5
3. Toni Pehkonen 35,5
4. Pekka Keski-Korsu 34
5. Jari Koski 30

Fifth and penultimate round of the series is to be driven in the middle of September at the region of Leppävirta, which is quite close to city of Varkaus where Janne Eronen and his RTE Motorsport company is based.
