Feelings for the crew of Sebastian Barbeau / Bogdan Iancu in the Harghita Rally and a well-deserved second place. “The brakes ran out!”

Sibiu residents Sebastian Barbeau and Bogdan Iancu started the Harghita right-hand rally, the second stage of the “Betano” National Rally Championship (CNRB), winning the first race, but on the second day of racing in Od. Zeklers, in the final special stage, ran out of brakes on the car they are competing in in the 2022 season, the Skoda Fabia Rally 2. However, the Sibiu crew finished the Harghita Rally in second place, behind title champion Simone Tempestini.

Last weekend Sebastian Barbot and Bogdan Iancu started the Harghita Rally, the second stage of the Betano National Rally Championship, where the Sibiu crew managed to finish the competition in second place.
Harghita Rally, the second stage of the Betano National Rally Championship, was the first rally in indoor competition that Sebastian Barbeau and Bogdan Iancu, his assistant, started in 2022. The Sibiu crew, in asphalt tests, competed with a Skoda Fabia Rally2 model and finished the race in second place in the overall ranking.
Sebastian Barbeau and Bogdan Iancu cut the first kilometers in their Skoda Fabia Rally2 in the break-away Friday morning and finished the test session for the second time. Also on Friday, the first day of the rally, three special events were scheduled, and the Sibiu crew started the Harghita stage with the best time in the Bucin event. In the next two places, Sebastien Barbot took second place in the next two places, Lebanon and “Super Special” Dietrich Arpad, and at the end of the day he finished second, 1.6 seconds behind leader Simon Tempestini, according to a statement issued by the press staff.

In Saturday’s first “episode”, the Trials of Merești, Sânpaul and Lueta, the battle for first place was still very close. Sebastian Barbeau and Bogdan Ianco for the second time finished the first two specials and won the first pass over Loeta, the difference from the leader was 2.2 seconds.
In the second pass, on the same “ring”, Sibiu’s crew encountered small technical problems that slowed him down even more. In the end, the bearings retracted, and this was especially evident in the last test, when Sebastien Barbeau braked 80 percent using only the handbrake. Although he lost nearly 50 seconds here, the Sibiu crew held onto second place on the Harghita stage.

“I’m glad we started this season with the Harghita stage, even if we still don’t know what 2022 will look like for us. Without unnecessary risk, we had a good pace from the first special stage and were fighting for victory until the middle of the race. Unfortunately, Saturday was marked by technical problems that slowed our work down further. We lost the most in the last test, when we ran out of brakes and even if we don’t collect extra points in the power stage we’re glad we held on to second place. That’s how it is in this sport, we’ll prepare better for the stages Coming and we’ll be fasterSebastian Barbeau said at the end of the Harghita Rally.
The next stage of the “Betano” national rally championship is the Argeș Rally, scheduled for May 20-21, which has a coefficient of 1.2.
The Sibiu crew in the 2022 season is supported by partners: Gorgandin, Eglo Romania, Naceleup.ro, Yiippi Mango Energy Drink, Geometrica Arhitects, P1, Mindsoft and Foerch Romania.
