Dinkel/Fürst with Hyundai and an international program

Rossach , 02-18-2019

After its successful years in the German Rally Championship (DRM), the Brose Rallye Team Dominik Dinkel / Christina Fürst is completely reorienting itself, wants to gain more gravel experience and improve even further on tarmac. Five selective rallies to the French Championship, three World Championship runs and the ADAC 3-Städte-Rallye as the finale form its 2019 programme.

"This is a completely new, big challenge, which at the same time offers a huge opportunity for further driver development," says the 26-year-old vehicle technician Dominik Dinkel from Rossach in Upper Franconia, Germany, who also trusts in the announcements of his permanent co-driver Christina Fürst (31/ Tiefenbach near Passau) in the new season. The start for the two will already be on 15 and 16 March 2019 with the "59. Rally Le Touquet Pas-de-Calais" in a Hyundai i20 R5 from Sarrazin Motorsport. The opening on tarmac will be followed by four gravel events, including the "Vodafone Rally de Portugal" (30 May to 02 June 2019), which is part of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). The Brose Rallye Team will revert to fixed surface at the "ADAC Rallye Deutschland" (22 to 25 Aug 2019), which is also a WRC event and will be staged around St. Wendel. The "Dayinsure Wales Rally GB" (WRC/ 03 to 06 Oct 2019) will then have a totally different characteristic, demands with its difficult gravel special stages the highest skills from the participants. At the end of the season they will return home to the "ADAC 3-Städte-Rallye (18 and 19 Oct 2019), which Dominik Dinkel / Christina Fürst won in 2017 and 2018.

"Of course, this amazing package would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors," explains Dominik Dinkel. "Our sincere thanks goes to all of them. I would especially like to mention my long-time patron Michael Stoschek and Brose. Tiago Monteiro has also paved the way for us with his company Skywalker Management". These includes direct support from the Hyundai Motorsport headquarters in Alzenau. Team Director An¬drea Adamo is looking very much forward to work with the Brose Rallye Team and sees great potential in Dominik Dinkel. Each event will be ac-companied by a Hyundai engineer and the i20 R5 from Sarrazin Motor¬sport, which Dominik and Christina have already been able to test exten-sively, will always be on the cutting edge of technology.

The year 2019 will be a new milestone in the career of Dominik Dinkel and Christina Fürst. The team, which claimed the most stage wins in the German Rallye Championship 2018, is now entering completely new territory except of the two German events and is meeting strong, internationally experienced competitors. They want to orient themselves on them and make sure that they can further increase their speed and performance over the course of the year. This is the declared aim of all involved.
