Jose Pedro Fontes and the Citroën Vodafone Team win Rally Terras d'Aboboreira 2019, the seventh round of the portuguese championship, which was organised on the tarmac roads around Amarante, north-east of Porto.


Jose Pedro Fontes and Ines Ponte (Citroën C3 R5) celebrate their comeback to the top with a win at Rally Terras d'Aboboreira 2019. Agaisnt the nineteen drivers engaged in the R5 category, they finished day one in second, only 1.6s down on Bruno Magalhães (Hyunday i20 R5) and a stage win on SS2. 

During day two of the rally, José Pedro Fontes (Citroën C3 R5) seized the lead of the race in SS5 and never let go. He gradually increased the gap with Bruno Magalhães, winning five stages out of six. At the end of the 104 km of stages, Jose Pedro Fontes and Ines Ponte win with a gap of more than 14s over their runner-up. 

This victory has a very specific meaning for the portuguese crew. It is their first win since their comeback to competition in 2019, after spending a year and half of recovering from a dramatic accident in 2017. 

With this victory, Jose Pedro Fontes and Ines Ponte climb to fourth place in the championship, with two rounds to go.

 

Jose Pedro Fontes : "It's a very good rally for us. We are very happy, it's always diffucult to win a rally against such competitors. We've made a lot of efforts with the team and never stopped believing. We've had a difficult year as everybody knows, we came very close to a victory in Mortagua (second round of the championship).We needed this victory, I am very happy to win it with Ines (Ponte, codriver). It has been very hard and this victory shows that we've overcome the difficulties. I hope we can win the last two rounds of the championship. I would also like to congratulate Bruno (Magalhães, Hyundai pilot). He's been very fast on stages he barely knew.
