Under the suffocating weather of the Rally of Turkey, Antony Warmbold and Gemma Price knew a quite difficult first day of competition on their Ford Focus WRC raising the colors of " Vertical Attitude ". At the beginning, in SS2, Antony had a spin after a bad tyre choice. But the biggest problem occurred at the beginning of SS 4 when the differentials stop to work after a short-circuit. So the car was undrivable; to keep it on the road was a real achievement. Fortunately the team managed to fix the breakdown, which allowed Antony and Gemma to finish the day into 11th position.

Antony Warmbold " That wasn't an easy day. I spent a lot of energy with this differential problem, we tried to repair it ourselves but that didn't work. With such a heat, you pay the least effort. The car was better in the last special stage, but we did not have the time to reprogram correctly the "diff" after this problem. Tomorrow, when all is going to be fixed, it's going to be much better. It's my first time in this rally, it's a difficult one but also a pleasant one."
