Kopecký: Loix can´t be caught in Ypres
"We won’t be able to catch him"
Jan Kopecký believes he has no chance of catching Freddy Loix on the Geko Ypres Rally. The Czech driver trails his new Škoda Motorsport team-mate by 30.9s with 10 stages remaining.
He said: “There is a very long way to go but the knowledge Freddy has of the roads will be too much and we won’t be able to catch him.”
Loix added: “Ypres is Ypres and you never know what can happen. I have a good lead but it’s easy to make mistakes.”
Kopecký can close the gap to IRC leader Juho Hänninen to three points if he finishes in second place. Hänninen crashed into a ditch on Friday’s fourth stage.
