WRC A FULL 2014

MEEKE GRABS PODIUM SPOT IN FRANCE FOR CITROËN!

VC4

After Monte-Carlo, Argentina and Finland, Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle claimed another podium at Rallye de France-Alsace in their DS3 WRC.
It was also the seventh podium finish of the season for the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team, thus consolidating its second place in the Manufacturers’ championship standings.
Stéphane Lefebvre finished fourth in the FIA Junior WRC round to wrap up this year’s title*. He will drive a DS3 R5 in 2015 in the WRC2 category!

5 October 2014

The Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team began the final leg of the Rallye de France-Alsace with all eyes looking up to the heavens and glued to the weather forecast on the Météo France screens. The rain forecast for midday persuaded both crews it was best to opt for a mix of three soft and three hard compound tyres. Their rivals did not all interpret the data in the same way, opting to go with anything from five hard tyres only to four hard and two soft tyres.

Despite the large damp patches apparent at sunrise, at the start of SS15, the vast majority of the roads remained dry. Kris Meeke managed his pace to remain in third position and claim an important podium finish for the World Championship standings.

Meanwhile, Mads Østberg spent the morning fighting for seventh place. The Norwegian grabbed his first ever stage win on tarmac on SS17 (Forêt de La Petite Pierre 2). And he only missed out on a top-three spot in the Power Stage by a tenth of a second, scoring six points at the end.

Sébastien Chardonnet and Thibault De la Haye recorded a series of second- and third-fastest times in their category to finish third in the WRC2 in their DS3 R5.

Alastair Fisher grabbed his first win of the season in the FIA Junior WRC in the DS3 R3, ahead of Eric Camilli and Quentin Giordano. Thanks to his fourth place finish, Lefebvre secured the FIA Junior WRC title*. He will therefore be driving a DS3 R5 next season in the WRC2!

The World Rally Championship crews and teams return to action on 23-26 October in Spain at the only mixed surface event on the 2014 calendar.

QUOTE, UNQUOTE

Kris Meeke: “We were on the pace right from the very start of the rally. We then focussed mainly on protecting our position. I feel we have been very consistent throughout the weekend and that’s what has helped us to pick up another podium finish. I think we can still improve and get some better results soon.”

Mads Østberg: “I’m very pleased to have made it to the end of this year’s Rallye de France. We had a few problems which prevented us from showing our full potential. But that’s part and parcel of rallying. When everything was working perfectly, we managed to set some good times. There are many positives to take away from this rally, starting with the points we won!”

Marek Nawarecki (Citroën Racing Deputy Team Principal): “The aim was to build on the knowledge and experience of the entire team at this event in order to fight for a place on the podium. Thanks to an exemplary performance, Kris Meeke has made sure we achieved that goal. This third place was important. Kris showed that he was quick and that he knew how to deliver a result. Mads’ rally was disrupted by a few technical issues. When he was feeling confident, he produced some fine performances. It has therefore been a pretty good weekend. With both our drivers finishing in the points, we have consolidated our second place in the Manufacturers’ standings.”

HOW THE ACTION UNFOLDED

SS15 – Forêt de La Petite Pierre 1 (12.33km) – Running with soft tyres, Robert Kubica set the fastest time on the day’s opening stage. He finished ahead of Elfyn Evans and Andreas Mikkelsen. Mads Østberg and Kris Meeke finished in the top 8.

SS16 – Forêt de Saverne 1 (19.36km) – First on the road, Sébastien Ogier went quickest on the first run on Forêt de Saverne. Mads Østberg produced a fine performance in fourth, whilst Kris Meeke protected his third position.

SS17 – Forêt de La Petite Pierre 2 (12.33km) – A first stage win at an exclusively tarmac event for Mads Østberg. The Norwegian finished this twelve-kilometre test ahead of Thierry Neuville and Elfyn Evans. Thierry Neuville moved past Bryan Bouffier into ninth place. Kris Meeke finished some six seconds behind his team-mate.

SS18 – Forêt de Saverne 2 – Power Stage (19.36km) – Sébastien Ogier claimed the stage win to take all three bonus points, ahead of Elfyn Evans and Jari-Matti Latvala. Latvala thus won his first ever rally on tarmac, finishing ahead of Andreas Mikkelsen and Kris Meeke. Fourth on the final test, Mads Østberg recovered seventh position after Robert Kubica crashed on the final stage.

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
