Ricardo Porém withdraws

26 outubro 2018

Ricardo Porém and his co-driver, Manuel Porém, ended the day in sixth position after having set the Prologue’s quickest time, and despite a crash against a tree in SS2.

After examining the VW Amarok at the Service Park, the South Racing engineers found out the transmission and chassis were distorted. Repairgin the damage would take a long time which, in turn, would represent a hefty penalisation.

Therefore, Ricardo Porém decided to withdraw from the competition. With this decision the driver puts an end to a sequence of back to back victories dating back to 2014.
