The Catalunya rally started very well, but on the second stage bad luck struck and we had a front left puncture and had to replace the tyre in the middle of the stage, losing two and a half minutes. After that I pushed very hard to catch the Group-N leader. But, the speed got to be too much and we suffered two more punctures and had to give up the hopes of another win. Luckily I managed to pull some excellent special stage times even though there were a few scary moments. We finished the rally 19th overall and second in Group-N.

19th overall, class 2nd
