JEETS CONFIDENT AHEAD OF HOME ERC EVENT IN ESTONIA

Raul Jeets says he’s confident of a great showing on his home round of the FIA European Rally Championship, auto24 Rally Estonia. The high-speed gravel event is the next round of the ERC on 15-17 July and Jeets is optimistic of improving upon his sixth place from 2015 despite the tough opposition that’s expected. He finished fourth on the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally in May in his ŠKODA Fabia R5. He said: “This is for us the most important start of the year. Friends, families, supporters and fans, they all are on the stages cheering for us. Plus the fast roads with numerous jumps. This is an incredible feeling! Competition will be tough but we’re ready for it. The fourth place from Acropolis and pace we showed in Azores have added a lot of confidence to us. And those stages were new for us but with stages of our home rally are we more familiar. The ŠKODA Fabia R5 is a good car and we are ready to give maximum attack at home.”
