The three-time winner of the FIA European Rally Championship, Kresta had achieved considerable success in the motorsport career spanning two decades. He pulled the plug-off the driving career, to better manage his rally team and car preparation business, Kresta Racing.
"The plan before the season started was to stop after Barum,"said the 37-year-old. "I do it a long time as a rally driver and now there is so much effort needed. At the moment I am not really a rally driver, I am a manager around everything with my team. It’s life, I’ve had a good career, driving for Ford in the WRC, winning this rally three times, things like that. There is a lot of emotion and I might come back one day for some rallies in the future but now is the right time to stop."
At RalliHeart, wishing Roman Kresta a bright and successful future!
