Feghali admits to Cyprus exit thoughts
After damaging his car on Thursday’s Super Special
Roger Feghali has considered the possibility of withdrawing from the FxPro Cyprus Rally.
Feghali damaged the left-rear suspension arm on Thursday night’s Lemesos Super Special Stage. With no spare available to replace the damaged component, the Lebanese driver has been forced to soldier through Friday morning’s stages with an ill-handling car.
“We really are struggling and I’m not enjoying it,” said Feghali. “I want to win this rally, not finish third, but to win will mean pushing more and with the car like it is that will mean taking more risks. We are on the limit like this and I really don’t know what to do. Maybe it is better to stop.”
Feghali is currently third overall after four stages. He had never driven his Fabia S2000 on gravel roads before entering the Intercontinental Rally Challenge qualifier.
