61º Tour de Córcega (5-8 Abril 2018) – Shakedown

LOS CITROËN C3 WRC LISTOS PARA EL DESAFÍO CORSO

Kris Meeke – Paul Nagle marcaron el mejor tiempo mientras que Sébastien Loeb – Daniel Elena fueron séptimos en el shakedown, aunque éste no ha sido representativo de las dificultades con las que tendrán que enfrentarse este fin de semana. Con este resultado confirman lo bien que se encuentran en el C3 WRC en los tramos de asfalto de Córcega.

– Los 5,45 km del shakedown del Tour de Córcega disputados por la mañana en el tramo de Sorbo-Ocagnano, fueron algo inusual, ya que con la fuerte lluvia que ha caído en la isla recientemente, las curvas estaban particularmente sucias.

– Bajo estas condiciones, había que estar entre los primeros para conseguir hacer un buen tiempo, antes de que la superficie de la carretera comenzara a llenarse de barro. Sin embargo, Kris Meeke, cuarto en el orden de salida, inmediatamente se situó arriba en la tabla de tiempos, para luego confirmar su excelente forma tras firmar un mejor tiempo en su segunda pasada.

– Sébastien Loeb, noveno en el orden de salida, inicialmente tuvo que lidiar con las difíciles condiciones de agarre, para luego convertirse en el único piloto que mejoró en su segunda pasada hasta marcar el séptimo mejor tiempo, demostrando que será uno de los hombres a tener en cuenta este fin de semana en Córcega, un rally en el que ha ganado cuatro veces (2005, 2006, 2007 y 2008).

– Dado que no se esperan unas condiciones así durante el resto del rally, las tripulaciones del equipo Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT decidieron no ir al límite en sus tres pasadas obligatorias por el tramo. Después de la ceremonia del comienzo del rally en el centro de Bastia, la verdadera prueba comenzará mañana, con el difícil tramo de La Porta – Valle di Rostino (49,03km), que volverá a disputarse por la tarde.

DECLARACIONES

Kris Meeke
“Ha sido un shakedown complicado debido a la lluvia que cayó el día anterior, y según se fue llenando de barro el tramo, no tenía sentido seguir rodando, sobre todo porque no creo que volvamos a encontrarnos con estas condiciones durante el rally. Sin embargo, podría haber todavía algunos trozos mojados en las zonas de bosques mañana por la mañana. Hoy me he sentido a gusto con el coche incluso con las malas condiciones de agarre, y eso es lo que más me importa”.

Sébastien Loeb
Las condiciones eran las esperadas, una asfalto muy resbaladizo y con mucho barro, así que no he querido ir muy rápido en mi primera pasada, puesto que no había pilotado en bajas condiciones de agarre con el coche. Una vez que hicimos la primera pasada, llevé mejor ritmo en la segunda, y debo decir que me siento a gusto con el coche”.

CLASIFICACIÓN DEL SHAKEDOWN

1. Meeke / Nagle (Citroën C3 WRC) 4:00.8
2. Mikkelsen / Jaeger (Hyundai i20 WRC) 4:03.0
3. Neuville / Gilsoul (Hyundai i20 WRC) 4:03.8
4. Sordo / Del Barrio (Hyundai i20 WRC) 4:04.3
5. Ogier / Ingrassia (Ford Fiesta WRC) 4:05.1
6. Evans / Mills (Ford Fiesta WRC) 4:06.1
7. Loeb / Elena (Citroën C3 WRC) 4:06.4
8. Tänak / Jarveoja (Toyota Yaris WRC) 4:08.5
9. Latvala / Anttila (Toyota Yaris WRC) 4:08.5
10. Lappi / Ferm (Toyota Yaris WRC) 4:08.6

Along the way, it will visit some of the world’s most historic rallycross tracks, while introducing two exciting new challenges in the shape of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit and the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Following its successful debut last year, Silverstone’s Speedmachine Festival returns on May 25 26.

GCK announce 2019 FIA World Rallycross line up

FIA World Rallycross Championship team GC KOMPETITION (GCK), founded by French athlete Guerlain Chicherit, proudly announces its participation in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship with two permanent teams.

GCK entered their debut season in 2018 with two brand-new Renault Megane R.S. RX, before expanding the team
to three vehicles at the USA and Germany WRX events. Building upon this successful debut season GCK will now
expand their operations to include four permanent drivers in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Returning as GC KOMPETITION team mate to team owner Chicherit in the GCK Megane R.S. RX is Swedish
European Rallycross Champion Anton Marklund.
Joining the GCK squad for 2019 as part of the all new GCK Academy team are RX2 Champion Cyril Raymond
(FRA) and RX2 Vice Champion Guillaume De Ridder (BEL) who will campaign a 2019 evolution of the successful

GCK Renault Clio R.S. RX.

GCK has appointed French engineering company FORS Performance to facilitate all WRX race operations from
2019 for both teams. Chicherit created the ‘GCK Academy’ team with a vision to further young rallycross talent and support junior drivers, giving them the opportunity to compete on a world championship motorsport stage. Having witnessed the growth of the FIA World Rallycross Championship and the increasing difficulties junior drivers face to develop in World Championship cars, Chicherit decided to start the GCK Academy, entering his GCK Clio R.S. RX into World
RX and adding 2 talented young race drivers to the GCK family.

Chicherit commented: «2019 is a really big year for GCK. We debuted the team in the FIA World Rallycross
Championship in 2018 and have been working really hard to further develop the GCK Megane R.S. RX, the first car to have been designed and built from scratch to compete in rallycross. To now enter the Championship with 4 cars is a big step. It allows me to compete in the GCK Megane R.S. RX alongside Anton who I’ve been working with closely over the last few months but also to support two super talented junior drivers in Cyril and Guillaume to develop in a World Championship driving the GCK Clio R.S. RX. I’m really excited to see what the season will bring.»

Returning to the GCK Megane RS RX for 2019 Anton Marklund commented:
«I’ve already been in contact with GCK since July 2018. This means we have already had a lot of time to work
together towards the upcoming season. First, I raced the GCK Mégane in the last 3 races of the 2018 season and
worked with Guerlain to further put together a development list for the car.
Then FORS Performance offered me to help them develop the GCK Clio during the winter which means I got to spend a lot of time and work closely with the team operating the cars this year.
With all those opportunities ahead of this season, Ialready feel very much at home in the team. I’m sure that with
the development and preparations we all have done during the winter, we have a good chance to race for top spots
in the 2019 season. I want to thank Guerlain and Bilstein for their trust and support and can’t wait to get the season
started!»

Following a successful 2018 rookie season in the FIA European Rallycross Championship, Cyril Raymond is
aiming to consistently compete for top six positions and work closely with his new team mate to bring success to
the GCK Academy programme. Cyril commented:
«My vision for 2019 is to improve my driving in supercars and to be a good teammate. I would like to show my
potential behind the wheel but also in the paddock at work. My target is to be in the final of the every race.

Joining GCK Academy is a really important moment of my career. I have finally become a race driver of the FIA World Rallycross Championship! It’s a dream come true. I’ll never forget this moment.»

Completing the GCK Academy roster, Belgium’s Guillaume De Ridder was identified by Guerlain Chicherit as a future World Rallycross star from when they both raced in RX2 during 2017. Throughout 2018, the GCK owner monitored De Ridder closely with the intention of presenting a Supercar opportunity to the Belgian.

Excited by the opportunity, Guillaume commented:
«Joining the GCK Academy is an incredible opportunity for me ! Being selected as one of the two junior drivers
representing the team is an awesome recognition. It has been many years now that I have been working so hard
and have given everything I had (sometimes even more than that!) in order to reach the highest level in motorsport, so it is finally a dream come true ! I would like to thank Guerlain Chicherit and all the GCK team for the opportunity they are giving me and I will work even harder to show them they have made the right choice. I am extremely excited and I can’t wait to start working with such a professional and ambitious team!»
