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 national rally championship started this year in Styria, where the 12th Porsche Maribor rally hosted the racers last Saturday, this time in April.

The UMI MB GPE team presented its Formula Student GPE14 car in Maribor. This is a group of 35 students, mostly from the Maribor Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, who invested their knowledge and free time throughout the academic year in making the right formula from carbon fiber. The GPE14, which weighs only 170 kilograms, is powered by a 450cc KTM 55-horsepower (41KW) powertrain and reaches a speed of 160km / h, accelerating to 100km / h in 3.7 seconds.
