Walero Ambassadors Overcome Tough Conditions in this Bank Holiday Race Weekend
Walero ambassadors had to overcome some difficult conditions to prosper in this bank holiday racing weekend.
Starting with the latest addition to join the Walero family, Catie Munnings, who first of all had to adapt to a new challenge she has not yet faced before. Catie has not yet experienced racing on wet, slick asphalt roads heading into this weekends European Rally Championship (ERC) race held in the Czech Republican track, Zlín. The strategy heading into this race had to be adapted by Catie and co-driver Alba Sanchez as their focus was less on speed and more on survival. If it wasn’t challenging enough having to adapt their strategy, it soon became much tougher for Catie as she suffered the weekend with a virus, resulting in Catie missing out on free practice and the qualifying stage. Determined not to let either of these factors stop her, Catie and co-driver Alba done a fantastic job to overcome these difficulties to win the ERC Zlín Ladies’ Trophy!
