WRC A FULL 2014

On course for another podium finish

VME1

23 August 2014| ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND (21-24/08/2014) – DAY 2

In second place at Rallye Deutschland ahead of the final day, Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle are determined to secure the best result of their WRC career tomorrow in Trier. Currently eighth overall, Mads Østberg and Jonas Andersson will be trying to gain a few places in the standings in the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team’s second DS3 WRC.

Today’s demanding second leg of Rallye Deutschland, including two runs on the infamous 42 kilometre-long Panzerplatte Lang, saw the two Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team crews hold onto their positions.

On roads left muddy as more cars completed the stages and then made slippery by showers in the afternoon, Kris Meeke and Mads Østberg maintained good pace throughout the day.

The British driver managed to consolidate his second place behind Jari-Matti Latvala, whilst holding off attacks from his rivals. Meanwhile, the Norwegian found a good feeling in the car and was able to move closer to Mikko Hirvonen and Elfyn Evans.

Early leaders in the WRC2 category, Sébastien Chardonnet and Thibault De la Haye showed once again their potential recording the fastest splits on the opening 38 kilometres of the first run on Panzerplatte Lang. However, a mechanical alert on their DS3 R5 led to a brief lapse in concentration, unfortunately resulting in them going off the road and having to retire.

Eric Camilli went off in the same section when leading in the Junior WRC class. His misfortune left Stéphane Lefebvre in first position. The winner of the first two rounds leads this evening from the German Christian Riedemann, the Frenchman Quentin Giordano and the Briton Alastair Fisher.

The final leg will be made up of four stages and 74 kilometres of timed sections. Another early start awaits the crews – cars are due to leave parc ferme at 6.15am. The televised Power Stage (Grafschaft 2) starts at 12.08pm. The rally is scheduled to finish in Trier at 2.30pm.

QUOTE, UNQUOTE

Kris Meeke: “It was a really tough day, with the changeable weather. We went with soft tyres for both loops. Some of our rivals went for the hard tyre, but I don’t think it made a big difference. I lost a few seconds in the afternoon due to a puncture. Fortunately, we made up some time on the 42 kilometre-long Panzerplatte Lang test this evening. I’ll be trying to do my very best tomorrow, without going beyond the limits.”

Mads Østberg: “We completed several stages in the rain. But I found the conditions were easier than you might have expected. Our position hasn’t changed compared with yesterday. And yet, I feel better and better in the car and our pace is increasing. We are closer now to Elfyn and Mikko. The aim is to try and get past them tomorrow.”

Yves Matton (Citroën Racing Team Principal): “Kris produced another solid performance again today. We knew that he had a lot of potential on tarmac from when he competed in the Junior WRC with Citroën. We hope he can go on tomorrow to secure what would be a richly-deserved result. Mads really increased his pace today. He is still right there in the scrap for sixth with Elfyn and Mikko. His aim is to rack up the miles on tarmac to prepare as well as possible for the Rallye de France. He has to keep going and try and grab sixth position, which is within his reach.”
HOW THE ACTION UNFOLDED

SS7 – Stein & Wein 1 (17.53km) – Robert Kubica made the most of favourable road conditions to set the fastest time. He finished ahead of Thierry Neuville, Jari-Matti Latvala and Sébastien Ogier, who had rejoined under Rally 2 rules. Kris Meeke and Mads Østberg’s positions were unchanged.

SS8 – Peterberg 1 (11.08km) – The stage was cancelled after Sébastien Ogier crashed heavily and went off.

SS9 – Arena Panzerplatte 1 (3.03km) – On this short and spectacular test, the leader Jari-Matti Latvala went fastest, ahead of Dani Sordo and Kris Meeke. Mads Østberg set the seventh fastest time.

SS10 – Panzerplatte Lang 1 (42.51km) – Having opted for hard tyres, Thierry Neuville and Dani Sordo finished among the frontrunners. Jari-Matti Latvala still grabbed the stage win, followed by Neuville, Meeke and Sordo. Sixth-fastest, Mads Østberg made up some time on his main rivals.

SS11 – Stein & Wein 2 (17.53km) – After the midday service, Jari-Matti Latvala continued to extend his lead. Kris Meeke and Thierry Neuville became embroiled in a close battle for second position, whilst Mads Østberg moved a little closer to Elfyn Evans.

SS12 – Peterberg 2 (11.08km) – Another stage win for Robert Kubica, who was first on the road. In the rain, Mads Østberg and Kris Meeke set the sixth and eighth fastest times respectively.

SS13 – Arena Panzerplatte 2 (3.03km) – No changes following this short test, with Jari-Matti Latvala grabbing the stage win. He remained the rally leader, trailed by Kris Meeke, Thierry Neuville and Dani Sordo.

SS14 – Panzerplatte Lang 2 (42.51km) – On the final 42 kilometres of the day, Kris Meeke managed to finish in second position behind Jari-Matti Latvala. He extended his lead over Thierry Neuville by a further 3.4 seconds. Mads Østberg moved closer to Elfyn Evans, who now only has a 1.2-second advantage, and Mikko Hirvonen, who is 6.1 seconds ahead of the Norwegian.

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
