Veiby goes solo in Swedish WRC 3
Norwegian youngster is the only WRC 3 contender in Sweden
The Norwegian youngster finished third in the opening round at Monte-Carlo when the FIA Junior WRC contenders also contested WRC 3. Sweden was not a JWRC round so Veiby found himself alone, knowing that simply finishing would secure full points.
He finished 22nd overall in Citroen’s DS 3 R3T after a troublefree outing through the snowy forests of Norway and central Sweden.
“It was fun in the car and I’m pretty pleased with my driving. To complete Rally Sweden has given me valuable experience for the future,” he said.
“With no competitors in the same group, we compared our driving with the fastest WRC 2 car through the weekend. And it’s good to see that we were as close as 1.5sec/km behind on average speed,” said Veiby.
