Tim Novak with third place in Opatija is still at the top of the Mitropa Cup
Tim Novak and Uroš Ocvirk won seventh place in the overall classification with Škoda Fabia R2 at the Opatija Rally, third place in the R2 class and third place in the Mitropa International Cup. "It was a difficult rally, as the already slippery Istrian roads were an even bigger rink due to the rain," said Novak, but he nevertheless stepped on the third podium twice. "Fabia worked flawlessly, maybe I'm not satisfied only with yesterday's and today's start, because Uroš and I didn't catch the right rhythm," he added. The next race of the Slovenian national championship and the Mitropa Cup will be the FUCHS Rally Saturnus Velenje, which will attract many competitors to the surroundings of Velenje on the last weekend in May.
