Grega Premrl and Anja Verbič will join forces in the new season

Rally
A new season of rally competitions is just around the corner. One of the major changes in the racing teams will be this year's collaboration between Grega Premrla and Anja Verbič. Before the start of the season, the newly formed crew will try to do everything necessary to meet their expectations when performing in the Slovenian national championship and the Mitropa Cup. Appearances in higher-ranking races are not excluded either. Despite the final fourth place in the DP and some good results at rallies abroad, Grega Premrl is not the most satisfied with last season, as he struggled with a lot of problems, especially at the beginning. He also faced changes of co-drivers, as Gregor Brešer had difficulty combining work and racing obligations. Vili Ošlaj and Rok Nartnik also took the passenger seat. “After four years of working with Gregor

Rok Turk was the best among the Slovenian crews at the Opatija Rally, which was not part of the Slovenian national championship, collecting points for the Mitropa Cup. With the Peugeot 208 R2, Idrijčan managed to reach the overall third place, and in the finish he won in the classification of two-wheel drive cars. The victory in the overall classification was celebrated by the Hungarian Krisztian Hidega, while the local Juraj Šebalj was ahead of the Turk. After the rally, Turk said that he was satisfied with the performance, but at the same time announced that he would most likely announce which rallies he would take part in this year. "I want to take five more rallies for the European Championships, including my next appearance at the very unique Ypres Rally in Belgium. As a newcomer, it will definitely be difficult for me there, as the competition in my class is years old.

The Maribor Rally did not end as planned for Premrl

Rally
Even before the rally, it was known that this would be a very demanding rally because 1/3 of the speed tests out of a total of 77 km took place on macadam and the weather forecast was not promising. On Saturday, the weather prospects came true and even at the peak of the first speed test, the crews were surprised by the snow. Grega and Gregor drove the first HP quite well and lagged only behind the Mitshubishis which have a 4x4 drive, which was a big advantage on the macadam hill. Unfortunately, the rally for Grego and Gregor ended 2km before the finish line 2 HP. Due to a technical error on the accelerator pedal, a slip from the road also followed. The luck in the accident was that they were stopped by a tree because if it weren’t for it, it would have landed in the valley. Unfortunately, resignations are part of this sport, so Grega and Grego are already watching with their heads held high at the next rally, which will be

The last rally for the national championship of Slovenia, the 07th Rally Poreč, took place in all known Poreč between 08.11.2014-15, which was also attended by the crew G.Premrl / G.Brešer with the team MGM Racing. Even before the rally, it was known that this would be a difficult rally for Grego, because the final 3rd place in the overall ranking of the Slovenian national championship was in the game, provided that he defeated his competitor Trček and did not resign. On Friday, there were 3 speeds on the schedule, which started a bit slower and then increased the pace.

  Sebastien Loeb recently tested a prototype race car in Valencia based on the Citroen DS3 WRC he was driving when he won his last two of nine rally championship titles. The races in the WRC World Rally Championship, like the WTCC racing cars, are powered by 1.6-liter turbo engines, what the purpose of testing remains remains a mystery, but it was probably related to Citroen's desire to enter the WTCC World Touring Car Championship. In doing so, the French depend on external sources of funding, and their future in motorsport is also questionable. Citroen has not revealed what model of car they would compete in the WTCC series this year. One option is the DS4 car, as sources report that the prototype DS3 did not perform best. He heads the most
