We finished 14th in the Classic Car Rally Club Final 2015 and 12th in our group, with 41 and 31 teams competing, respectively. Despite missing one race, we successfully completed the season making it into the Top 10 in the team standings, while also ranking among the best 15 drivers and co-drivers.
Yesterday’s race saw IB Translations team not just take part in a classic rally, but excel at it outperforming many, including themselves. Coming fourth and, what is more important, doing this in the absolute standing is our all-time best result, as we never scored higher than being number 18 during the previous seasons. So hurray!
