In the second place of the WRC2 Masters category and in the 20th of the general classification, Jourdan Serderidis-Fred Miclotte finished in the Rally of Sardinia. The crew driving a Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo made spectacular passes in the special stages of the island, jumping impressively in the several jumps of the race.
The primary goal of the Serderides-Miclotte was to carry out all the kilometers of the race in order to properly prepare for the upcoming Rally Safari, without having their minds on the times of the rival crews of the category. However, after the first special stages when they saw that they were competitive, they drove smart and finished second in the category aimed at Drivers over 55 years old.
“We decided to run in the Sardinian Rally as a training session in view of Kenya. With the exception of the puncture that delayed us in the second special stage on Friday, the race went smoothly for us, which was what was required,” said Jourdan Serderidis and continued: “Second place among the 12 starters in the WRC2 Masters makes us happy, especially when you have rival drivers like Freddy Loix.”
This year ‘s race proved to be particularly tough with the heat making it difficult for the crews to work throughout the four days:“The high temperatures did not deter us, although the conditions inside the Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo were difficult. What surprised us was the hardness of the experts on the island. It was definitely harder than the Acropolis Rally of 2021. We did not expect it!” were the words of Serderidis.
The next appearance of Jourdan Serderidis will take place again at the World Rally Championship, as the Greek driver will compete in the Rally Safari from the 23rd to the 26th of June, this time with Ford Puma Rally1 and the support of MSport: “I look forward to racing in Kenya. It is a dream of a lifetime to start in this famous race” were his words, adding: “Only the evaluation from the Sardinian Rally can be positive. We have prepared properly for our next match and we will claim the best we can”.
