Bozian Racing's Roman Kresta continued to record progressively better stage times as Rally Sanremo unfolded during leg two today.

The 27-year-old went on to explore the complexities of this meticulous asphalt challenge on twisty mountainous roads while experimenting with his Peugeot 206 WRC's set-ups and trying to find the most suitable rhythm.

Although he improved his stage times substantially, Kresta still does not feel completely in harmony with local road conditions and stage characteristics, hoping tomorrow will provide him yet with more valuable experience and perhaps an opportunity to break into the top ten overall.

"We had a better day than Friday - but I did feel far from the kind of performance I am able to produce at this level," said Kresta, "My confidence in the car's feeling on local roads went up as I tackled more stages throughout the day.

"Like yesterday, it was visible how much progress top factory cars achieved for this particular event. Regardless of this fact, I plan to relax overnight to further my progress tomorrow on the remaining four tests."

Team boss Jacky Bozian commented: "Roman did not find the right tempo for today's first long special stage and that cost him valuable time. This effectively put him in a very difficult position as he had hoped to press hard on Teglia and continue to progress further throughout the day. Fortunately, he improved his stage times as the day opened.

"We know this is not a rally that suits his driving style especially due to the relatively slower speeds and twisty bends. We are very confident in his skills and abilities and trust his time will come again in Catalonia. Nevertheless, this event is far from over and Roman will have yet another day tomorrow to fine-tune his pace under local highly specific conditions."
