Hyundai Shell World Rally Team finishes gruelling Rally Argentina with a fine fifth place after a character-building event
Thierry Neuville, fresh from a stage win on Saturday evening, claimed third place on the famous El Condor stage (SS12) to take fifth overall at the end of the rally
The unique extreme demands of Rally Argentina team have helped the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team to identify areas of improvement for future WRC events.

Carlos Paz, Argentina

May 14, 2014 – The Hyundai Shell World Rally Team has completed its most demanding FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) event to date with a highly commendable fifth place finish. The final day of action saw Thierry Neuville (#7 Hyundai i20 WRC, co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul) continue to make up ground with some strong performances over the final four stages, which have covered a total of 76.78km.

Neuville started the final day of action in positive spirits having claimed a stage win on Saturday evening to position himself in the top five overall. It was another useful day of testing on tough terrain with more extreme conditions. Foggy conditions were again prevalent but the main issue today was mud during the famous El Condor stage (SS12).

Neuville, however, mastered the conditions perfectly to deliver the third fastest time. The repeat of the morning’s opening stage (SS11/SS13 Giulio Cesare-Mina Clavero) saw the Belgian register the fourth best time to further cement his fifth place heading into the Power Stage, a repeat of the 16.32km El Condor-Copina stage. Transmission problems prevented Neuville from getting the most out of the car in the final stage but it was enough to confirm his top five finish.

Neuville said: “I didn’t feel so comfortable in the first stage this morning so I just took it cautiously to avoid making any mistakes. The conditions in the subsequent stages were extremely challenging so I did everything I could in the muddy terrain. The hardest part was the lack of visibility with mud spraying on the windshield constantly. The car went very well and I had good traction, which helped adapt to the ever changing conditions. The team has performed excellently this weekend, tackling a range of issues with complete professionalism, and I think a top five result in this rally is a huge achievement for a young team. We have for sure learned a lot.”

In just its fifth WRC event, the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team has had to tackle extremely tough terrain throughout the 14-stage, three-day event, which has put extra pressure on the Hyundai i20 WRC cars and the team itself. The experience of this rally will prove invaluable to the team as it continues to build momentum and confidence for the rest of the season.

Team Principal Michel Nandan summarised: “Our objective today was to keep putting the car through its paces in these difficult conditions and hopefully to secure our fifth place overall, which Thierry did, so in that respect we should be pleased. Overall, it has been a rally of ups and downs. I must admit that coming to Argentina has been a great test for the team and the crews. We have learned a lot and the team has done a fantastic job. They remained committed to keeping both cars going as competitively as possible after each loop with lots of hard work along the way. The conditions have been some of the worst we’ve seen so I commend the team and our driver crews for their professional approach. We know that our Hyundai i20 WRC can be quick and we have identified points where we can improve reliability in several areas. We might not have achieved a two car finish but in these extremely tough conditions, we leave Argentina as a much stronger and wiser team as a result of our experiences this weekend.”

40th MANATEQ QATAR?? INTERNATIONAL RALLY

SATURDAY

SS11 – Al-Khor 2 – 18.18km.

AL-ATTIYAH ?? SEALS 14TH QATAR ?? RALLY WIN AND FIRST REGIONAL SUCCESS FOR VOLKSWAGEN’S POLO GTI R5 ??

LUSAIL (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah cruised through the final six gravel special stages of the Manateq Qatar International Rally to seal a convincing victory on Saturday.

A record-breaking 14th victory in his home event also marked a remarkable 70th MERC victory in the 211-event history of the FIA Middle East Rally Championships since 1984. His French co-driver Matthieu Baumel duly claimed his third win in Qatar and a career 18th in the MERC.

The success also marked the first outright FIA championship rally win for Volkswagen’s Polo GTI R5 that made its debut at the WRC in Spain last October and claimed WRC 2 success in Sweden in February with Norwegian driver Ole Christian Veiby. Customer Polos have already won national events in Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Latvia this year

A menos de 10 días del Rally blanco de Suecia, con mucha expectativa para volver a ver a los mejores exponentes del WRC en los caminos forestales nórdicos, les dejamos una foto recordatoria de la edición 1995 con el Impreza 555 de Grupo A que intervinieron en esa instancia en el equipo azul de Prodrive, el español Carlos Sainz, el recordado escocés Colin McRae y el local Mat Jonsson.
