Robert Consani has had a brilliant first day to the 2015 GaGa Energy Janner Rallye. He sits in second place as the cars went into the final loop of stages for the day. The Frenchman has taken on the role of lead Peugeot driver in this rally after the demise of Craig Breen in stage one.
The day has been challenging with fresh snow falling over night and snow falling during the day. I has meant that drivers have really had to concentrate to even know where they are going and the grip has been changeable all day. Added to that, the drivers get to tackle night stages in the freezing conditions.
Only two drivers have really been able to get on top of the conditions – Consani and Poland’s Kajetan Kajetanowicz who has been able to build up a big lead in his Ford.
It is also a long day with the drivers on stage for more than 12 hours. A great way to do a rally, however. The Janner Rallye has enabled the drivers a hundreds of competitive kilometres while keeping the rally near a central service park. The key though is the night stages which bring a different element to the rally.
We hear from Consani about his day and how he will tackle the final stages.
