Dani Sordo en la lucha por el Rally de Portugal

Después de los dos podios conseguidos en México y Argentina, Dani Sordo y Carlos del Barrio han vuelto a mostrar su excelente estado de forma y son terceros provisionales finalizada la primera etapa del Rally de Portugal, sexta prueba puntuable para el Campeonato del Mundo de Rallyes 2018.

Tras un excelente inicio de rally, Dani y Carlos han llegado a liderar la prueba lusa mediada la etapa, después de imponerse en la tercera especial de la jornada, Ponte de Lima, de 27,54 kilómetros.

Un error en la elección de neumáticos para el bucle de tramos de la tarde ha hecho que Dani haya tenido que administrar muy bien sus ruedas blandas, perdiendo dos posiciones al final del día.

A pesar de ello, la jornada ha sido positiva para el piloto de Hyundai Motorsport: “El balance del día es positivo. He pilotado sin errores y después de cuatro especiales eramos líderes. Después del primer tramo de la tarde he comprobado que el estado de nuestros neumáticos era muy malo y hemos tenido que bajar el ritmo. Espero que vaya aún mejor mañana y podamos recortar la diferencia con Evans”, comentaba Dani desde Oporto al terminar la última de la jornada.

Mañana sábado se disputará la etapa más larga del Rally de Portugal con 154,64 kilómetros cronometrados, formados por un bucle de tres especiales que se repite, Vieira do Minho (17,50 kilómetros), Cabeceiras de Basto (22,22 kilómetros) y Amarante (37,60 kilómetros), siendo esta última la especial más larga de la prueba.

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!»
