Gilbert dominates Junior WRC in Monte-Carlo
Frenchman takes comfortable victory in opening round
The Norwegian finished third in the opening round at Monte-Carlo when the FIA Junior WRC contenders also contested WRC 3. Sweden is not a JWRC round so Veiby finds himself alone, knowing that simply finishing will secure maximum points.
He prepared for his Swedish debut by tackling Norway’s Finnskog Rally last weekend and feels ready for the challenge in Citroen’s DS 3 R3T.
“I had a good test last week and also competed in the Finnskog Rally to have some more mileage in the car. It all looks very promising, but it also comes down to experience.
“Although, as a Norwegian, I’m familiar with driving on snow and ice, it’s a bit different in the rally. At Finnskog I found it challenging to keep the car steady in the ruts, but hopefully we have now found a better set up for that,” said Veiby.
