In the WRC Masters category, aimed at drivers over 50 years old, Iordanis Serderidis participates this year, maintaining third place after the completion of the third day of the Monte Carlo Rally.
The Cavalier driver with the Greek flag in the sky of the Volkswagen Polo R5 and co-driver the experienced Fred Miclotte maintained Friday's gains and now 52 kilometers separate him from another finish in the Principality's marina. “There may have been no snow this year, but the ice on most of the stages, the mud and the high humidity keep the degree of difficulty of the race high. From the experience of my five participations in the Monte Carlo Rally, I have to say that this year's rally is like all the previous ones, demanding, difficult and requires full concentration in order to cope with the pitfalls hidden by the special routes” said Iordanis Serderidis who drives with concentration with the aim of finishing and the podium in his category and continued: “We struggled, especially on the last stage on Saturday as it was quite slippery and we also passed it when it was already dark. However, we managed to come out unscathed and we continue our effort”
Regarding the goal on Sunday, the Greek driver said: “Our goal was to increase our pace in Saturday's specials and claim second place. We won two specials from our main rival, but the difference is such that it cannot be covered without taking risks. There is still a way to go to the finish and now we will follow a safer pace to reach Monaco”
The Greek champion of the 2017 WRC Trophy category managed to enter the top 10 of the WRC2 category at the same time. The final leg of the Monte Carlo Rally consists of 3 special stages and 52 racing kilometers.
