En el estreno del Campeonato del Mundo FIA de RallyCross, que se estren贸 en los Estados Unidos, el equipo austriaco STARD realiz贸 nuevamente una estupenda labor y le di贸 al let贸n Janis Baumanis un lugar en las semifinales de la Copa Mundial

El “Big Tech” fue todo un furor este fin de semana para el Campeonato Mundial de RallyCross que gestiona la FIA, repleto de todas las estrellas actuales del circuito ecum茅nico que disctamina el WRX . En el Circuito de las Am茅ricas en Austin, fue la primera vez que un Campeonato Mundial de esta disciplina, corr铆a en los EE. UU. En el programa establecido desde Paris en la sede oficial de la FIA.

En una secci贸n donde Texas fue epicentro de la F贸rmula 1, en curso de Austin, que girar谩n otra vez en tres semanas, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel & Co. sus giros esta semana fueron distintos y lucharon contra los mejores pilotos del panorama global que tiene el World RX 2018. Con una solidez de puntos y victorias. En un fragmento en dictamen medio m谩s o menos se las arregl贸 el equipo austr铆aco STARD, en torno a su equipo de RallyCross Internacional. Con el jefe de la escuadra austr铆aca, Manfred Stohl y el piloto let贸n Janis Baumanis, que se super贸 profundamente en su duelo propio tripulando el aceptable andar de la Ford Fiesta RXS de STARD. Que con los m谩s famosos equipos de trabajo en consecuencia que hay hoy en d铆a en el mundo de la actividad en el WRX. Despu茅s de siete presentaciones en la fase final, el equipo y su piloto volvieron a buscar la felicidad en Estados Unidos. Llegando a las semifinales, gracias al fabuloso rendimiento de los amortiguadores efectuados desde Jap贸n por TEIN.

Y, como muchos anticiparon, este sitio realmente se abri贸 pasando en el equipo STARD aun casi “Top 5”, gracias al arduo trabajo de sus mec谩nicos e ingenieros especializados. No se ve铆a as铆 desde el principio en una fecha mundial del WRX, un avance tan notorio. Despu茅s de dos carreras clasificatorias mixtas, Janis Baumanis solo lleg贸 en la 13 掳 posici贸n general absoluta y, por lo tanto, en un vuelo local. Llegaba Manfred a suelo norteamericano y Dec铆a “Si Janis no mejora su nivel, no se ve bien lo que viene” Pero el convencimiento y dialogo entre el ex OMV y el escandinavo di贸 sus frutos, arribando Janis a estar entre los seis mejores seleccionados para las finales, Manfred Stohl se sonri贸, donde obtuvo su estructura un sobrio resultado provisional. Pero el let贸n entendi贸 perfectamente la pista estadounidense y los dichos de su jefe de equipo en STARD. Con un s茅ptimo lugar en el tercer lado clasificatorio y noveno en la cuarta vuelta total de registros en el tradicional circuito de las Am茅ricas, que se lo hizo ingresar a la und茅cima posici贸n en la general, despu茅s de correr un largo momento contras las M茅gane RX de GCK/Prodrive y de este modo se clasificando para las semifinales, con una modificaci贸n de seguridad muy buena, que han sido impugnados por los doce mejores pilotos del mundo en el presente del WRX . All铆 Baumanis se reuni贸 en su grupo de seis elegidos, para ver qui茅n es qui茅n el rey del universo en el RallyCross planetario. El ex campe贸n del mundo del WRC 2003, Petter Solberg, el monarca actual de la divisi贸n, el sueco Johan Kristoffersson, y los pilotos Peugeot con sus principales estrellas los hermanos Kevin y Timmy Hansen con el alsaciano S茅bastien Loeb. Adem谩s del franc茅s Guerlain Chicherit con su impredecible desempe帽o sobre la unidad del rombo armada en Gran Breta帽a por Prodrive. TEIN super贸 las expectativas con el buen sintoma que produjo Baumanis en Austin, con los construidos autos ovalados frente a la casa “austriaca que tienen Manfred y Rudolph Stohl en Enzersdorf, la superaci贸n activa de Advanced Research and Development.
TEIN, STARD y Baumanis casi logran el objetivo m谩s deseado de estar en el “TOP FIVE”

 

 

 

La pr贸xima cita ser谩 en Estering, en Alemania entre el 13 al 14 de Octubre.

POLO GTI R5: GERARD-JAN DE JONGH BY VOLKSWAGEN MOTORSPORT – INTERVIEW SPECIAL

POLO GTI R5: GERARD-JAN DE JONGH BY VOLKSWAGEN MOTORSPORT – INTERVIEW SPECIAL.

https://www.facebook.com/PetterSolbergWRX/

 

 

Two years in development, roughly 10,000 kilometres of testing.

As a race engineer, he guided S茅bastien Ogier to four titles in the World Rally Championship (WRC) between 2013 and 2016. Nowadays, Dutchman Gerard-Jan de Jongh is responsible for the Polo GTI R5 in his role as project leader at Volkswagen Motorsport. The 200-kW (272-PS) rally car will, in the future, be run by professional teams in the FIA World Rally Championship, interregional series like the FIA European Rally Championship, and national championships. In an interview shortly before the planned homologation on 1 October, 40-year-old de Jongh describes the challenges of the R5 regulations. The engineer also gives an overview of the development steps behind the Polo GTI R5 and looks ahead to the car鈥檚 competitive debut at the Rally Spain at the end of October.

Mr. de Jongh, for several years you were S茅bastien Ogier鈥檚 race engineer at Volkswagen Motorsport. Do you miss the competitive outings?

My role as project leader for the development of a completely new rally car is obviously very different. I had the opportunity to continue to work as a race engineer, but found this new challenge at Volkswagen Motorsport very appealing. My job was suddenly far more complicated and complex than before. I am pleased that I took on this challenge.

When did you start to develop the Polo GTI R5?

In the week after the Rally Australia in November 2016, the last world championship event for the WRC team at the time. I started as soon as I got back to my office. The idea came from Fran莽ois-Xavier Demaison, Technical Director at Volkswagen Motorsport.

Demaison is known as a perfectionist. How heavily involved was he in your work?

FX (Demaison鈥檚 nickname) is currently responsible for four different projects. Despite this, he has still been very heavily involved in the development of the Polo GTI R5, right from the word go. We have had weekly meetings from the outset, at which we have discussed the further development of the car. FX is one of the most experienced engineers in rallying. His backing really helped me and the whole development team.

What form did the first steps take in the development of the Polo GTI R5?

I first thought about the basic concept of the Polo GTI R5, after which we came up with a design briefing. The next task was to find the right suppliers for the car components that are not made at Volkswagen Motorsport. In this regard, we were able to turn to a whole string of reliable contacts, with whom we worked on the Polo R WRC. They include Xtrac for the gearbox, Bosch for the engine electronics, ZF Sachs for the shock absorbers, and Alcon for the brakes.

How big was the team that developed the Polo GTI R5?

At Volkswagen Motorsport, we have design teams for the chassis, engine and suspension, each consisting of three to six employees. The work was divided between the team members. I was mainly in contact with the heads of department, but also with the designers. Experience has shown me that there is nothing better than personal contact.

What were the basic parameters for the development of the Polo GTI R5?

It was clear that the Polo GTI R5 had to be based on the 2017 generation of the production car. However, the new sixth generation Polo was not yet available when we started to develop the rally car. For this reason, we had to work exclusively with computer data. Thanks to the computer simulation, we had the chassis ready relatively early on in proceedings. We were then able to work with that in the wind tunnel. When defining the specification, we also placed great importance on ensuring that it was possible for private teams to look after the technical side of the Polo GTI R5 without any problems.

How many components were you able to adopt from the Polo R WRC?

Hardly any at all, because the technical regulations are completely different and the Polo R WRC was based on the previous model. However, we did adapt the design philosophy. For example, the mounting position of the shock absorbers, the spring deflection, the geometry of the suspension, and the position of the driver鈥檚 seat are similar. Exactly as we did with the Polo R WRC, we strived to make every single component as light as possible, in order to keep the car鈥檚 centre of gravity as low as possible. Here too, however, we were restricted by the regulations. Price limits are specified for many parts and a minimum weight is often stipulated 鈥 for the bodyshell, for example.

The International Automobile Federation FIA specifies a fixed budget for R5 cars 鈥

鈥 and sticking to this budget with an R5 car like the Polo GTI R5 actually represents a major challenge. It would obviously be possible to build a more effective car within the framework of the technical regulations. However, that would be too expensive and would have to come at a sacrifice. That is out of the question for our company and would not be in the interest of the sport. We have gained similar customer sport experience in touring car racing with the Golf GTI TCR. We were able to build on that for the R5. Furthermore, the regulations stipulate the use of production parts in certain areas, including the steering, radiator, drive shafts, cardan shaft and the engine.

Where did you have to make compromises?

Weight is a big issue with any racing car. As a rule, however, the lighter a part is the more expensive it is. As such, I had to make sure that the suppliers, with whom we wanted to cooperate, understood that we would have to find a compromise between performance and cost. Let鈥檚 take a part of the suspension, for example. In simple terms, we designed 90 percent of the part. We then took this design to the potential suppliers and asked them what price they would be able to supply the part for? The important thing was the quantity. We sometimes only needed a handful of the components for the Polo R WRC. In the case of the Polo GTI R5, which is designed for customer sport, we are talking about 50, 100 or even more parts. That obviously has a big influence on the price.

1.6-litre turbo engines are required in the R5 class. However, the production version of the Polo does not have this kind of engine 鈥

The regulations do give us more leeway in this regard. The rules state that the rally car鈥檚 engine must stem from one of the group鈥檚 production models. We opted for the engine with the internal code EA888, a similar form of which, with a two-litre displacement, is also installed in the new Polo GTI. It was then modified accordingly for the Polo GTI R5.

How long have you been testing with the Polo GTI R5, and which drivers were involved in the tests?

The first test took place in November 2017 at the test facility in Fontjoncouse, France. Since then, Volkswagen test and development driver Dieter Depping, Pontus Tidemand, former world rally champions Petter Solberg and Marcus Gr枚nholm, Raimund Baumschlager, Eric Camilli, and Emil Lindholm have all driven the car. The test programme was demanding: temperatures ranged from – 16 掳C to +40 掳C and the testing took place at sea level and at 2,800 metres in the mountains. We tested in such varied conditions, in order to ensure that our customers receive a car that performs reliably at all times and everywhere. We also wanted to gauge the opinion of drivers with different driving styles, as well as asphalt and gravel experts. The Polo GTI R5 must be versatile and driveable by the widest possible range of drivers. In total, we will have completed about 10,000 test kilometres by the time the car makes its competitive debut 鈥 roughly half of those were on gravel and half on asphalt, as well as a few on snow and ice.

The Polo GTI R5 will make its competitive debut at the end of October at the Rally Spain, the penultimate round of the FIA World Rally Championship. What are your expectations?

We will run two Polo GTI R5s, in order to show the potential of the car. The goal is to demonstrate how competitive the new Polo GTI R5 is at the highest level and on different surfaces. The Spanish round of the world championship is particularly well suited to this, as it is the only one held on both asphalt and gravel. However, we are well aware, from our time with the Polo R WRC in the FIA World Rally Championship, that good planning does not guarantee good results 鈥 particularly in rallying. We would be pleased with a good result in WRC2.

In Eric Camilli and Petter Solberg, Volkswagen will have two experienced drivers at the wheel of the Polo GTI R5 at the Rally Spain. Why did you choose these two?

Eric Camilli and his co-driver Benjamin Veillas played a key role in the development of the Polo GTI R5. Both have a wealth of experience in the WRC2 class of the FIA World Rally Championship and finished runner-up in 2017. For them to be involved in the competitive debut of the Polo GTI R5 is the logical next step. Plus, we really value their detailed feedback and analytical approach. Petter Solberg was also involved in the development of the Polo GTI R5. He is one of the most experienced rally drivers in the world and his knowledge is a big plus for any team. Furthermore, he is associated with Volkswagen Motorsport through his team鈥檚 commitment in the FIA World Rallycross Championship (WRX). It is a special honour and great to have him driving the Polo GTI R5 at the Rally Spain.

Petter back to the World Rally Championship with Volkswagen

World Rally Champion to drive Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 in Spain
Petter delighted to be back in the series where he won his first world title
Salou-based event will be the debut rally for Volkswagen鈥檚 all-new Polo GTI R5

Petter Solberg will return to the World Rally Championship to drive Volkswagen Motorsport鈥檚 Polo GTI R5 at Rally de Espa帽a next month.

The Norwegian, who won the WRC title in 2003, will join the factory Volkswagen Motorsport team alongside Eric Camilli (FRA) for its one-off outing at the Salou-based event from October 25-28.

Petter, who first tested the Polo GTI R5 in Sweden at the start of the season, will test the car ahead of his rally return.

Since departing the World Rally Championship, Petter has focused his efforts on the World Rallycross Championship, where he won two more FIA world titles (2014/15). For the last two years, Petter鈥檚 own team 鈥 PSRX Volkswagen Sweden 鈥 has worked closely with Volkswagen Motorsport; the squad鈥檚 Polo R Supercars are prepared ahead of each World RX round in Hannover.

Petter said: 鈥淚 think everybody knows about my passion for rallying and when Sven [Smeets, Volkswagen Motorsport director] asked me if I would like to do Spain in the Polo, I jumped at the chance.

鈥淲hen I drove the car in January, I didn鈥檛 want to stop. Everything about the Polo GTI R5 worked from the very beginning. To be in the car for the very first time is a real privilege for me 鈥 I鈥檓 very happy that Volkswagen trusted this job to me and to Eric [Camilli].鈥

Norway鈥檚 Veronica Engan will co-drive Petter, having worked alongside him at his January test of the Polo GTI R5. Veronica is well acquainted with the Solberg family 鈥搒he鈥檚 normally found co-driving Petter鈥檚 son Oliver.

Petter鈥檚 illustrious WRC career spanned 14 years and 188 starts. He won 13 of those events, scored 54 podiums and collected 457 stage wins and 852 points.

Beyond the numbers, Petter remains one of the sport鈥檚 most popular drivers and going back to Salou is bound to bring a range of emotions.

鈥淭his is the place where I did my last event before I decided to switch to rallycross,鈥 said Solberg. 鈥淚t will be fantastic to be back, especially with this car and team. The chance to drive Volkswagen鈥檚 Polo GTI R5 on gravel and asphalt in the WRC鈥檚 only mixed-surface event is a challenge I can鈥檛 wait to start. I have seen what Volkswagen Motorsport does from the inside in World RX and it鈥檚 going to be a real pleasure to work with them in rallying.

鈥淎s well as that, it will be great to see some old friends and fans again. Spain was always one of the events I really loved, the passion and atmosphere there is just fantastic.鈥

Being a natural competitor, Petter will have an eye on the times at an event where he finished second overall in 2010.

鈥淚 know how good the Polo GTI R5 is,鈥 said Petter, 鈥渁nd I think people know I鈥檓 not just going there to drive around. It鈥檚 an honour to join the team for this event and I will go there to do my best and push as hard as I can.鈥

Volkswagen Motorsport director Sven Smeets said: 鈥淧etter is a true rally hero. We have already experienced his passion and professionalism working alongside him in World Rallycross. To give everything, always 110 per cent is Petter鈥檚 trademark.

鈥淗e tested the Polo GTI R5 and, from the beginning, it was our dream to have him in the car to give this new customer rally car its debut. It鈥檚 fantastic that he joins us in Spain to drive the Polo R5; I鈥檓 sure everybody is looking forward to seeing him back again 鈥 and our new car.

鈥淔or sure, everybody in Volkswagen Motorsport is excited to be working on a rally and on this special event with Petter and our second driver Eric Camilli.鈥

Rally de Espa帽a startswith a spectacular opening stage in Barcelona before moving into day one鈥檚 dirt stages in the Tarragona hills. For the weekend, it鈥檚 all about the racetrack-smooth roads inland from the service park at Salou鈥檚 popular holiday park PortAventura.

Petter will face 18 stages on a 1,496 kilometres (929 miles), of which 331km (205 miles) are competitive.

WRC comeback with Volkswagen: Petter Solberg to drive the new Polo GTI R5 in Spain

2003 world rally champion returns to the scene of his last WRC Rally

Three world champions in one rally: S茅bastien Loeb, S茅bastien Ogier and Petter Solberg

Debut for the new Polo GTI R5 for customer sport only planned outing as works team

Wolfsburg (20 September 2018). He鈥檚 back! 2003 champion Petter Solberg (N) returns to the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) with the Volkswagen Polo GTI R5. Solberg and co-driver Veronica Engan (N) will compete in the WRC 2 class at the Rally Spain in Catalonia from 25 to 28 October. Six years after his last rally in 2012, the Norwegian will make his comeback in precisely the same place, at which he called time on his rally career. Solberg, who drives a Polo for his PSRX Volkswagen Sweden team in the FIA World Rallycross Championship (WRX), will briefly change fields. The new Polo GTI R5 will make its competitive debut at the Rally Spain, which will be the car鈥檚 only outing with the Volkswagen works team. The racing car will then be run by customer teams in national and international championships, in accordance with R5 regulations.

鈥淭he opportunity to make a WRC comeback with Volkswagen is a unique one, and I was very happy to accept the offer,鈥 said Solberg. 鈥淲hen I drove the car in January in Sweden, I didn鈥檛 want to stop. Everything about the Polo GTI R5 worked from the very beginning. I am really looking forward to the Rally Spain. I always used to like the combination of gravel and asphalt. It will obviously be a special feeling to return to the place I brought the curtain down on my rally career back in 2012. It will be a fantastic reunion with the WRC Family, but one with a professional background. I obviously want to get the R5 Polo off to a good start with a good result.鈥

Volkswagen Motorsport Director, Sven Smeets: 鈥淧etter is a true rally hero. We have already experienced his passion and professionalism working alongside him in World Rallycross. To give everything, always 110 per cent is Petter鈥檚 trademark. He has tested the Polo GTI R5 and has always been one of our preferred candidates for the debut of our new customer sport car. It is fantastic that he will drive the R5 Polo in Spain. Everyone in the team is looking forward to the rally and to working with Petter and his team-mate Eric Camilli.鈥

Petter Solberg returns to his rallying roots

Solberg returns to the WRC from the WRX for a weekend. This sees the Norwegian return to his rallying roots. Between 1998 and 2012, he made 188 appearances in the World Rally Championship 鈥 with Toyota, Ford, Subaru and Citro毛n. In 2003, Solberg won the world championship title with Subaru, ending the season just one point ahead of eventual record-breaking champion S茅bastien Loeb and third-placed Spaniard Carlos Sainz. He remains the last nordic world rally champion. In 2009, 2010 and 2011, Solberg competed in the WRC with his own team. He then spent one final year as a works driver with Ford in 2012. Solberg claimed 52 podium results in the World Rally Championship, 13 of them victories. The Rally Spain marks Solberg鈥檚 first rally with Volkswagen, and his debut in an R5 car.

Three world champions in one WRC rally for the first time for eight years

Solberg is the third world rally champion set to drive at the 2018 Rally Spain, where he will line up against reigning champion S茅bastien Ogier and the returning S茅bastien Loeb. As such, the last three men to win the title will all compete in Spain 鈥 albeit in different classes. The last time three world champions raced at the same event was the 2010 Rally Finland (Loeb, Solberg, Kankkunen).

Solberg and Volkswagen in the WRX 鈥 an extremely successful combination

After switching from WRC to WRX, the 43-year-old won the Drivers鈥 title in both 2014 and 2015. Volkswagen Motorsport and Petter Solberg鈥檚 PSRX team announced a partnership at the start of 2017. This has proven to be a winning combination: the team took the Team title and was behind the world champion, Johan Kristoffersson (S), in its very first year. Volkswagen is responsible for the development and technical preparation of the two Polo R Supercars, while PSRX Volkswagen Sweden looks after the logistics, on-site running of the car, and the marketing side of things. Solberg remains the only driver to have won the Drivers鈥 title in two different FIA world championships.

The Solberg dynasty: drifting and full throttle are in the blood

Solberg originally wanted to be a painter 鈥 however, he gave up his training place for motorsport. The rally pedigree within his family tree is evidence of the fact that speed is in his blood. 鈥淢r. Hollywood鈥 comes from an extremely successful dynasty of rally drivers: his parents both successfully took part in Autocross races. His brother Henning Solberg recently claimed the best result for an R5 car in the overall standings at the Rally Turkey 鈥 sixth place 鈥 and can also look back on an eventful WRC career. When Petter married his wife Pernilla, the Solbergs joined forces with the Walfridsson family 鈥 already an established name on the Rallycross and rallying scene. Pernilla was long regarded as one of the best female rally drivers in the world. It is no wonder then that their son Oliver has already enjoyed great success as he follows in his parents鈥 footstep 鈥 including in the FIA Baltic Rally Trophy and the Latvian and Estonian Rally Championship.

Already part of the family: Veronica Engan in the co-driver seat at the Rally Spain

The choice of co-driver for the Rally Spain was an obvious one. Veronica Engan has competed alongside son Oliver in various R2 rallies since 2017, and is virtually a member of the family. The 34-year-old can point to roughly 150 starts with Nordic rally drivers, including Eyvind Brynildsen (N), Marius Aasen (N), Johan Kristoffersson (S), Bernt Kollevold (N) and Anders Gr酶ndal (N). Her career started in 2003, since when she has 27 WRC and seven WRC 2 rallies to her name. Her best result came in 2009, when she finished seventh alongside Mads 脴stberg at the Rally Italy on Sardinia.
