Czech Roman Kresta enjoyed an excellent day today [Friday] during leg one of the 59th Rally of Great Britain.

Driving his Bozian-tuned Peugeot 206 WRC in style from the start to the finish, he ended the leg in eighth place overall, and on course to score a WRC point.

"I think I can be satisfied," said Kresta, "All but the last two of today's tests were very slippery, with stones and ruts covering the roads. One never knows what can happen especially when driving fast. I simply picked my pace and was driving up to imaginary limits.

"The car, as well as the team has been perfectly reliable, so I drove with calmness in my mind. I am also happy with my new suspension set-up, though I have been trying little variations to see how much further I can improve.

"I think the car is at its limits, on the other hand, I feel I have some hidden reserves within myself, which is always something I must continue to discover and use to my advantage. I believe I can still drive better on Saturday and Sunday."

Bozian team boss, Jacky Bozian, added: "I am very happy for Roman and the team. Roman drove exceptionally well from the very beginning of the race on all of today's stages, while utilizing the full potential of the car.

"I am certain he will carry on to put out similar performance tomorrow as well as on Sunday as he is in the best position he has had on all world rallies he entered this year. I do not wish to praise Roman prematurely, it is now up to him to show more as the rally goes on."
