The champion of Spain in the Group N category, in addition to the EVO Cup and the Canary Rally championship on land, concentrates on a new assault on the national trophy on land commanded by a rider as competitive as the R5.
During the intense days that took place in Finland, the pilots ran in two types of routes. One with very fast tracing characteristics in which to reach high speeds, comprised of about three kilometers; and in another circuit with a slower speed arrangement because it comprised different blind flush and some very closed curves.
Juan Carlos Quintana commented on the experience that: "Little by little we have been able to appreciate a evolution after learning", since as the couple rolled and made more kilometers, they were" more comfortable. "What the pilots are left with is what" we have learned in the Nordic techniques on ice ", since" it is very important to play with the weights and inertias of the vehicle. "In addition," the key is to take the vehicle as straight as possible", said Quintana, although for the pilot," this is nothing new, but when you are on snow the sensations are very different from other types of road, "he said.
As for the impressions of Rogelio Peñate, co-pilot of Quintana, he highlighted the transfer to the tests in Finnish lands because " the technique of the course was very well designed"
Those responsible for the course have several circuits prepared on frozen lakes and that allows different techniques to work on different paths. Some are faster, with blind flush and others much slower, with very tight curves for which you have to work very well on the braking. "As in any type of ground, the seconds are won when you brake the brakes", sentenced Peñate.
