Hunt ran in northern Italy last Friday as he worked on finalising a winning set-up on the Citroën DS3 R3T he shares with co-driver and fellow Briton Robbie Durant.
“We had a test in nothern Italy on Friday, which went very well,” said Hunt, who heads Robert Consani in the standings by a single point. “We tried to find a good asphalt set-up and it’s been good to get some extra seat-time in the car.”
Hunt’s team manager Iwan Evans said: “Despite the roads in Sliven being quite wide and smooth in some places, we understand that the grip level is quite low which calls for a specific set-up for the car to work at its best. We found a good test road in Italy which replicates the nature of roads we’ll see in Bulgaria next week, and after a full day’s driving, and some fine tuning, we are now confident with the set-ups we have.”
