Killer Starlet big jump!

Annie Seel & Gøril Undebakke 6th in Rally Estonia Historic 2016 

Posted on Updated on

We made it! At the finish podium of Rally Estonia
The last day of the rally was crazy fast. One stage I had 100,7 kph average in the little Starlet 1.3 lit. 

A couple of oopsies but no big drama, we finished 6th general. And we came second in class, behind Finnish “Mr Starlet” Esa Peltonen. 

Thank you to Codriver Gøril Undebakke, for coming with me last minute. I learned so much from you!

And the biggest thanks my mechanics Benny Öberg and Kjell Lundberg, for putting in all the work on the car!

Day 1 #RallyEstonia: Killer Starlet in 8th pos

Posted on

We had a great day today, 60 kilometres of special stage. First stage was the real test of me and Gøril as new partners in the Killer Starlet. Also this was the first time I have been writing and driving my own pace notes. A little nervous and scary – can i trust my pace notes at full speed. 

Half way into the stage the track was new and narrow with very loose and soft gravel. In one corner I came a little wide and slid down on the edge of the gravel. And there we got stuck, we could not get up. The spectators helped and pushed. Thank you! And we only lost some 20-30 seconds. 

Also I had changed gearbox since the last rally, and had to adjust my driving. All in all the day went perfect. 

Happy to say Gøril and I have made a good Swedish-Norwegian team in such sort time.

Pre-start #RallyEstonia

Today was crazy busy. Get up at 7 am. Recce starts at 8, covering more than 100 kilometres of special stages plus the liaisons. 

This was the first test of our new team communication in Norwegian and Swedish. And I’m not so experienced in making my own pace notes. Codriver Gøril gave me some useful tips how. And the second round through I felt the pace notes were pretty ok for a beginner. 

After recce we were in a hurry, we still had to attend the First Aid Safety course and then take the car to the ceremonial start ceremony in Tartu. It’s always so fun putting on a little show for the crowd at the podium.

After the ceremony we drove straight to the technical scrutineering where the car is inspected. And we made it through, so now we are officially in the rally. 

Tomorrow we will race!

Follow us, we’re no #8 in Historic category. http://www.rallyestonia.com

PRESSRELEASE 

Annie Seel enter all women’s team in Rally Estonia, 15-17 July. 
This will be the second European championship rally for Annie Seel in her Toyota Starlet. Last year she won her category and finished 10th general. 

But Annie Seel will have a new Codriver in the rally. She had bee looking for a female Codriver that wants to step up in international level. And now she found the partner in Norway, Gøril Undebakke. Together they form the only all women’s team in the rally!

– I’m a little nervous but also excited to ace with a new Codriver when we haven’t raced together before. But I’m used to taking on new partners if they have the right spirit, and I believe Gøril is perfect. We will have fun and put on a show out there! Annie Seel explains her aim for the rally. 

Gøril Undebakke has been Codriver since 2000, and won the Norwegian Codriver’c cup the two previous years. 

– This will be my first European Championship and I look forward to this event, says Gøril Undebakke.

PRESSMEDDELANDE: Annie Seel enda helkvinnliga team i EM #RallyEstonia

PRESSMEDDELANDE

Annie Seel enda helkvinnliga team i EM Rally Estland

Tartu – 2016-07-14 

Nu står Annie Seel på startlinjen i EM-deltävlingen som körs 15-17 juli i Estland. Det här blir andra gången hon kör EM i Historic. Förra året tog hon en klasseger och kom på 10:e plats totalt.

Inför årets tävling stod Annie utan kartläsare efter att Marcus Sundh tvingades lämna ett sent återbud. Genom norgebaserade Toyota Team Historic fick Annie Seel kontakt med Gøril Undebakke, som nu gör sin debut i Historic rally. De blir det enda helkvinnliga teamet som ställer upp i EM.

– Det är lite nervöst och spännande att ställa upp med en helt ny kartläsare. Vi har ju inte åkt ihop förut, men det viktigaste är att vi har rätt energi och kul ihop, resten löser vi på vägen, säger Annie Seel som är van att ta med oprövade kartläsare.

Gøril Undebakke har åkt rally sedan år 2000. De två senaste åren har hon vunnit NMK-cupen för kartläsare i Norge. 

– Det här blir mitt första EM. Jag ser verkligen fram emot att få den här chansen, förklarar Gøril Undebakke.

Annie Seel kör samma Toyota Starlet från 1979 som hon tog en klasseger med i Estland förra året.

– I år är det tuffare motstånd i 1300-klassen eftersom finske Esa Peltonen ställer upp med sin superpreppade Starlet. Han är ju nästan känd som “Mr Starlet”, skrattar Annie Seel.

– Målet är att göra en bra tävling. Och vi ska köra brett och bjuda publiken på en show där vi kan, avslutar Annie Seel.
