Carlos Fessman took to the opening two stages of 38km on his first WRC Tarmac event earlier today at Rallye Deutschland. He safely completed both tests in his Ralliart Italy run Mitsubishi with a strong pace and reach the overnight halt second on the WRC 2 Production Cup leader board. The Venezuelan was pleased with his speed on Day One and felt he had a good rhythm, but understands that the rally is long and that this was only the beginning: “I had a good day.
