27.08.2011 - Extending their leadership with class win 4 at Limes Rallye

At the 21st ADAC Rallye Limes Valentin Hummel and Katja Geyer could continue on BMW 120d Coupé their winning streak with a fourth class win, although their class G19 was with 8 starters strongly contested. Due to this further class win, the two newcomers did not only hold the lead in the DMSB Rallyepokal Mitte and the Hessian Rally Championship HFM, but expanded it even further.

However, at the start of SS2 it did not look like a further class win, because with a too late noticed slow puncture they started under worst possible conditions. With true heroism and having no other choice the team was riding on the rim to the finish. Through the subsequent neutralization of the SS the bad time did not tip the scales. With best time in class on all SSs it was finally a confident victory and the team was also satisfied with a 16th position in the overall standings.

After the disappointing early end at Rally Germany Katja and Valentin felt visibly comfortable in their own BMW and were happy that the unbroken winning streak since the beginning of the season could be continued.
