Monte Carlo, Monaco, 25.01.2004 - The crew Jozef Bére? and Petr Starý finished in the 9th place in the total results of Rally Monte Carlo competition, only one place behind the scoring and they got the historical success for the Slovak motosport. The final day was very hard because of the fact that the organisers put on one of the most difficult S.S. in the world - the legendary Col du Turini.
The car was overheated again after the load of the engine, that's why the crew got through the track of S.S. without ALS. In spite of the saving the car, times of each S.S. were enough to keep good results.
Jozef Bére? - The driver: "I am very happy that we reached the finish in nice place. So, I could give to General Director of the team a nice present to his birthday. The problems with the car continued today, but in spite of that we got good results. It is pity that we had to save the car. We could go faster. We tried not to make mistake whole competition and we succeeded it. Of course we had also a good luck. I have to thank to all our team for their excellent work."
Petr Starý - The Co-driver: "We finished very hard competition and we are happy. At the beginning, no one was thinking about the place we got to. We did not make mistake but we also did not go slowly in any cases. Of course the decreasing of competitors helped us. We got a lot of experience and it is important for us."
Marek ?ilhánek - Head of the Team: "The crew had excellent performance. It is necessary to thank them and to all team."
Petr Ko?i, Eng. - General Manager: "The crew fulfilled all the instructions and kept the determined performance. I can give them the acclamation for their professional attitude to this competition and to these conditions, also for the driver's sense of the technique. Of course we are happy of this result, which encourage us for next difficult work. Whole team worked very well. I also thank them."
