The weather conditions were the protagonist, as they played a decisive role in the development of the match for Lefteris Alygizakis- Michalis Hatzidakis: “A wrong choice of tires ruined our race”, the driver initially said and continued: “We chose dry tires for the first special stage, since it had not rained all night and we were informed that the road was dry. Nevertheless, our choice turned out to be wrong, since the the stage was having lot of humidity and it had already started to drizzle” The i-race duo lost almost a minute and together every hope of claiming victory, which in fact seemed an extremely difficult case: “In the second stage, things went a little better for us, since we placed in our car the two reserves we had chosen for intermediate conditions”, were the words of Lefteris Alygizakis who now aimed second place.

We are satisfied with the fact that with the points of the second place we remained alive in the battle of the championship and we will have the opportunity to fight in the last race of the year in December “
