With recent development taking place on the GRX Taneco Hyundai i20 Supercars during the mid-season break, you couldn’t blame Timur Timerzyanov for feeling confident of making up some ground on the Works Teams in the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

With the second half of the season starting with the 2018 World RX of Canada, the Russian driver worked hard to stay inside the top twelve places during qualifying. However several incidents would conspire against his hard work.

It’s so frustrating! It’s the second time I’ve lost an advantage this weekend. Sunday morning I made a mistake and hit a wall. I managed to get going again but the damage was done,” said Timerzyanov.

I’ll have to go all-out in the last round to make the semis. I’ll give it all I’ve got!

And so he did. The former Double FIA European Rallycross Champion pushed hard to stay inside the top twelve and he would achieve his target in some typical rallycross style.

Starting off Q4 in thirteenth place, Timerzyanov used his talent and experience to finish in eleventh place and even take a place from Robin Larsson in the OMSE Ford Fiesta. Despite this valiant effort, Timerzyanov would go on to finish in sixth place in Semi Final One.

I had a hard time this weekend! I couldn’t avoid Jérôme Grosset-Janin’s car in Q2, then made a mistake in Q3. I lost a lot of time, but I dug deep and managed to make up the lost time to qualify for the semis,” said The GRX Taneco driver.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the pace I needed to keep up with the leaders. I need to take stock and work on my weak points to be stronger for the next round in France.
