Over the past two days, Erik van Loon and Hein Verschuuren have shown a rising line during the Baja Aragon. During the prologue there are small problems with the Can-Am, but gradually the rally is getting better. The fourth time on the last trial forms the cherry on the cake and makes Van Loon go home with a good feeling.

“I can rest now,” says Van Loon. “It’s so nice to see how it goes when everything works correctly. It was a tough race with a lot of competition. Because we lost time on the prologue, we had to make a catch. During the first stage, we suffered from dust and an flat tyre that brought us less forward than we hoped. However, we finished the first day as ninth, so that was pretty good.”

Today, the Can-Am is running well and the cooperation in the car is as usual. “In the beginning there was a lot of dust, but it actually went fine in the morning. We ran the 7th time, but we did a good job during the long test this afternoon. It was really top! He has navigated well, the car was great and if we can drive without adversity then I will be 4th. A very good finish of the rally, in the end we finish as 7th and I’m very satisfied with it.”
