Sesks received a unique opportunity at Rally Poland, driving a Rally1 car for the first time in his career.

Sesks, 24, drove an M-Sport Ford Puma Rally1 car and took full advantage of the opportunity. The Latvian finished an impressive fifth overall and even challenged Hyundai’s Thierry Neuville, who is leading the championship.

“Naturally, this was just incredible,” Sesks enthused.

“We were able to improve as the weekend progressed and be more consistent, so I am really pleased,” Sesks continued.

Sesks drove the Ford Puma like a seasoned pro. The Latvian’s performance was the finest individual story of the Rally Poland weekend.

“The most important thing was that the pace was there, and there were no mistakes. Just a couple of minor errors, but that’s surely part of the learning process. Everything went well,” Sesks stated.

M-Sport team principal Richard Millener was naturally pleased as well.

“Hats off to Martins for his incredible debut. He was able to fight against Thierry Neuville, which was incredible and really great to watch,” Millener praised.

“I am already looking forward to Rally Latvia and what he will achieve there,” Millener anticipated.

Before his home rally in Latvia, Sesks will also participate in the European Rally Championship event in Estonia. There he will compete with a Toyota Rally2 car. In Rally Latvia, Sesks will have an even more powerful vehicle at his disposal, as his Ford Puma Rally1 car will be equipped with a hybrid unit.
