Meeke and Østberg aim for big points in Alsace

Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle strengthened their grip on third position on day two of the Rallye de France-Alsace, as they edged closer to a fourth podium finish of the season.
Meanwhile, Mads Østberg and Jonas Andersson lie seventh overall in the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team’s second DS3 WRC.
In the FIA Junior WRC, Stéphane Lefebvre only has to hold position tomorrow to secure his first international title in the DS3 R3.

RALLYE DE FRANCE-ALSACE (2-5/10/2014) – DAY 2

4 October 2014

The night was short for the Rallye de France-Alsace crews and teams. Between entering parc ferme at the end of the first leg and returning to the service park for the start of day two, the DS3 WRC of Mads Østberg was parked for just 7 hours and 46 minutes.

The crews were nonetheless wide awake and raring to go for this morning’s stages. Third overall at the start of the day, Kris Meeke consolidated his position throughout the leg. Quick on the second loop, setting the second fastest time on Soultzeren – Le Grand Hohnack 2, he stretched his lead over his nearest challenger to over 47 seconds.

Fighting for fourth place with tarmac specialists Dani Sordo and Robert Kubica, Mads Østberg was slowed by an oil leak on the rear differential of his car. Forced to carry out repairs before the start of SS13, he was given a 70-second penalty for checking in late for the stage, demoting him to seventh overall.

After collecting two stage wins in WRC2 in their DS3 R5, Sébastien Chardonnet and Thibault De la Haye also moved closer to another podium finish in their category.

Leader of the FIA Junior WRC round since SS7, Alastair Fisher held onto first position throughout this long second leg, made up of 125 kilometres of timed stages. This evening, he leads a quartet of Frenchmen: Eric Camilli, Stéphane Lefebvre, Quentin Giordano and Yohan Rossel. If the order remains unchanged, fourth place would be enough for Stéphane Lefebvre to secure the title and with it, a WRC2 programme next year in a DS3 R5!

There are only four stages left to complete tomorrow, with no service period. However, many crews highlighted the difficulties of these closing stages during recce. And the final day of the Rallye de France-Alsace traditionally provides plenty of surprises… The day starts at 6.05am, with the Power Stage at 12.05pm and the finish expected at the Zénith de Strasbourg from around 2.30pm.

QUOTE, UNQUOTE

Kris Meeke: “No drama on today’s leg. We managed to improve as the day went on and get closer to the times of the leaders. The gaps aren‘t set in stone ahead of us. We know that a lot can still happen on Sunday’s stages. The new roads look pretty daunting and the weather could make a big difference. Given the lead we have over our nearest challengers, we may even have the opportunity to try something in terms of tyre choice.”

Mads Østberg: “I really enjoyed driving the DS3 WRC on the first loop. We had a good rhythm and we were beating some of the leading guys on tarmac. On SS11, I started to feel a bit of instability on the rear axle. There was a leak on the differential. We decided it was better to carry out repairs between stages to be sure of making it to the end of the day. The penalty we were given for checking in late dropped us down to seventh. It’s disappointing, but we can still score some important points tomorrow.”

Marek Nawarecki (Citroën Racing Deputy Team Principal): “We knew the challenges that this very long day would present. On such demanding stages, Kris and Mads made the perfect start on this morning’s loop. They grew in confidence despite the damp patches. This afternoon, Kris met his objectives by setting some very good times. He’s well placed ahead of the final leg. Mads had a technical problem. He managed to perform repairs and limit the time lost. He is also well placed to score points for the championship from seventh position.”

HOW THE ACTION UNFOLDED

SS8 – Vallée de Munster 1 (18.90km) – Jari-Matti Latvala picked up where he had left off last night with a win on the opening stage of the day, ahead of Andreas Mikkelsen. Kris Meeke grabbed the fifth-fastest time, whilst Mads Østberg was seventh.

SS9 – Soultzeren – Le Grand Hohnack 1 (19.93km) – On dry roads, Latvala stretched his overall lead with the win, finishing ahead of Sébastien Ogier. Kris Meeke finished fifth fastest and Mads Østberg lost a position to Robert Kubica.

SS10 – Pays Welche – Riquewihr 1 (21.49km) – The overall standings remained unchanged before the remote service in Colmar. Jari-Matti Latvala continued to rack up the stage wins to remain first, in front of Andreas Mikkelsen and Kris Meeke. Thierry Neuville moved back into the top 10.

SS11 – Vallée de Munster 2 (18.90km) – Yet another stage win for Jari-Matti Latvala. Elfyn Evans grabbed eighth position from Bryan Bouffier. Sébastien Chardonnet claimed his first stage win of the weekend in WRC2 with the DS3 R5.

SS12 – Soultzeren – Le Grand Hohnack 2 (19.93km) – Sébastien Ogier brought Jari-Matti Latvala’s impressive run to an end, as he went fastest ahead of Kris Meeke. The Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team moved back to within thirty seconds of Andreas Mikkelsen. A second stage win for Chardonnet in WRC2.

SS13 – Pays Welche – Riquewihr 2 (21.49km) – Mads Østberg had to repair an oil leak on his DS3 WRC’s rear differential, meaning he checked in late for the stage, and was handed a 70-second penalty as a result. Sébastien Ogier claimed the stage win, ahead of Jari-Matti Latvala and Kris Meeke.

SS14 – Mulhouse (4.86km) – Jari-Matti Latvala ended the day with another stage win. Fourth fastest, Kris Meeke consolidated his third position after two days’ racing. Mads Østberg proved that his repairs had worked as he grabbed eighth position on the day’s final test.

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
