100 percent #GOgier – Volkswagen\’s lead in Mexico extended.

Ogier/Ingrassia’s perfect performance edges them towards third Mexico win
Well organized: Mikkelsen/Fløene in third place at the end of day three
Mixed feelings for Volkswagen: Setback for Latvala/Anttila who were in second place

8 March 2015

Thumbs up for the double world champions and the “youngsters”: Volkswagen is still in the lead with Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia at the Rally Mexico after three of four days. At the third event of the season in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), the French duo continued to keep up the pace and extended their lead to 1:15.2 minutes. Ogier/Ingrassia are the only duo in Mexico to have finished in the top three on all 18 of the special stages held so far. Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) have also shown a strong performance, and are contesting their first joint Rally Mexico in the Polo R WRC. They are third in the overall standings – trailing Mads Østberg/Jonas Andersson (N/S, Citroën), in second overall, by just 4.5 seconds. Going into the final three special stages on Sunday – including the longest stage of the rally year so far, the 55.82-kilometre “Guanajuatito” – they are within striking distance of possibly seizing second place.

However, day three of the rally ended earlier than expected for Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN), who will start under Rally 2 regulations on Sunday. The Volkswagen duo were in second place overall when they hit a bank with the rear of their Polo R WRC on the twelfth special stage of the Rally Mexico, damaging the suspension. As a result, the runners-up of last year’s world championship, who were the only ones able to keep up with the pace of Ogier/Ingrassia at that point, were forced to retire. The Volkswagen mechanics repaired their World Rally Car so that they can restart the rally on Sunday.

Quotes, day 3 Rally Mexico

Sébastien Ogier, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #1
“From a driving perspective, this weekend is definitely one of the best of my career, I’m very happy with my performance. Julien and I have had another perfect day and haven’t made any mistakes. We kept putting pressure on the others. While I didn’t need to continue taking risks after Jari-Matti Latvala retired, the job is far from done. I said previously that a win here was highly unlikely unless my rivals had a bad weekend – and now it looks like it might actually happen. But we still have the longest and most challenging stage of the rally ahead of us. I can promise you this: Despite our lead, we won’t be making the mistake of shifting down a few gears. The danger of losing focus would be too great.”

Jari-Matti Latvala, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #2
“If you want to win, you have to put the leader under pressure. But I knew that I couldn’t risk everything. I had a good rhythm on the twelfth stage. There was a pothole on the inside of a bend and I came off the line slightly to avoid it, and I ended up on loose ground in this really narrow section. I hit a bank with the rear left of the car and damaged my suspension. I had hoped that we would be able to repair it at the end of the stage, but unfortunately there was nothing we could do.”

Andreas Mikkelsen, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #9
“We’re sticking to our plan and aren’t changing it: Our aim is to drive at our own rhythm, stay out of trouble and to reach the finish of each special stage without incident. We don’t have much experience of Mexico and many of the stages are new to us. Which is why the first pass of the special stages in the morning wasn’t as good as the pass in the afternoon. We left room for manoeuvre and waited until the afternoon loop to attack a bit more. I’m very happy with how the rally is going for us. So far, so good – tomorrow will be another hard day for us, with tricky special stages. But even then we need to stick to our plan for the rally.”

Jost Capito, Volkswagen Motorsport Director
“Volkswagen has experienced a day of mixed feelings at the Rally Mexico. Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia demonstrated their superior class once again, and extended their lead without resistance. Andreas Mikkelsen and Ola Fløene also organized the day and the special stages perfectly and are on course to finish on the podium, and are even within reach of second place. Unfortunately, we also suffered a setback here today. Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila damaged their car trying to put their team-mates under pressure, and forfeited their chance of winning. Our mechanics worked extremely hard to give them a perfect Polo R WRC so that they can start tomorrow and battle for points in the manufacturer’s world championship.”

And then there was …

… the “Fiesta Mexicana”. On Saturday evening at the Rally Mexico, Volkswagen Mexico traditionally invites the rally team of Ogier, Latvala and Mikkelsen to a Mexican evening. The evening, which the Volkswagen mechanics and engineers always look forward to attending, is a fantastic event that is part of a rally week organized perfectly by the Mexican importer. From the presence in the service park that is clearly visible, to looking after the guests on the special stages, the Volkswagen Mexico commitment is exemplary worldwide. Our “thanks” go to our colleagues!

RRM WRC ARGENTINA MAGAZINE 157 🇦🇷 🌎
El mes de la primavera, septiembre ha sido una etapa muy interesante para nuestra publicación, ya que en estas semanas hemos trabajado bastante en la elaboración de la misma:
Los temas más convincentes de la edición #RRM #157 son los siguientes:
El Rally de Estonia, todo quedo en poder del joven finlandés Kalle Rovanpera, en su primera victoria mundialista con TOYOTA.
Y el belga Thierry Neuville, no tuvo rivales en Ieper, tripulando de forma magistral a la Coupe i20 WRC Plus de Hyundai Motorsport.
#TEIN enfrenta una temporada con intensidad completando los frentes más amplios en el Rally japonés y en otras actividades deportivas a nivel internacional, con sus innovaciones totales en los sistemas de amortiguación desde Yokohama al Mundo exterior de la disciplina en el ámbito global.
Olga Litcan, la indispensable y responsable de la logística de Motorsport Italia, en sus diferentes secciones, tanto en la parte estructural con el Rally Di Roma Capitale, como en el centro de atención de la escuadra romana, que gestionan Max Rendina y Bruno De Pianto.
Donde la bella dama rubia, se destaca en sus funciones y obtiene un redito muy importante para el buen rendimiento funcional interno del equipo italiano más representativo en la actualidad que tiene el Rally Mundial.
El #BRX con sus Hinteros T1 se presentó en la clásica Baja Aragón de España, donde sus tres prototipos armados, construidos y fabricados en Gran Bretaña. Desde Banbury, con la dirección del magnate David Richards. Incorporando al piloto nacional Orly Terranova, quien ha desempeñado una labor muy destacada, obteniendo grandes parciales, junto a sus compañeros de equipo, el francés Sebastien Loeb y el español Nani Roma.

Que alista el veterano Ken Skidmore y se consolida en el Cross Country Mundial con la Hilux oficial de Toyota By Overdrive Team, que maneja Jean-Marc Fortín.
Pero no debemos olvidar de la temporada 2012, donde el vínculo con los franceses de Citroën Racing, que Nasser realizo el lazo estrecho con la firma de Satory/Versalles, bajo el apoyo del gobierno de Qatar, mediante su primo Al-Thani, que dispuso de la DS3 WRC de ultima especificación similar a la de Ogier y Loeb. Ese paso fue fundamental para luego irrumpir en el futbol internacional, con la compra del PSG, el Paris Saint Germain, donde hoy es furor con la contratación del mejor futbolista del planeta, Leo Messi, el as de espadas número 30 del parque de los príncipes galo.
Portugal, ha sido siempre una plaza trascendental para los pilotos argentinos de Rally y nuestra columnista especial lusa, la hermosa Vera Von Monika, nos protagonizó un excelente resumen de nuestros mejores conductores con éxitos inolvidables en el WRC portugués.
El #ARGWRT, se activa en el pensamiento de todos, y el sueño que deseamos, empieza a tomar un impulso milimétrico con las negociaciones de la TOP RUN con los responsables de la TCR South América, para vender sus WRX STI de Subaru para la temporada 2022. Y así empezar a delinear el regreso al WRC3 con los coches de SPEC Rally2 Evo a partir del Rally de Montecarlo 2023. Y del agrado de los hermanos Agnello, es la empresa de automóviles checa, ŠKODA.

The 140th edition of RRM is eagerly awaited, with all the latest news from the World Rally Championship. Offering special reports with exclusive interviews of international level.
In this time the edition of the month of March, has in its credit everything what happened with the triumph in Sweden, of the British Elfyn Evans with Toyota.

What will come from the Rome Capitale Rally 2020, valid for the European competition, organized by the Italian firm Motorsport Italia, which is headed by Max Rendina.
An intense note from the top executive of TEIN INC. in Japan, Mr. Yoshio Fujimoto, with his sporting support for their stable programs in Motorsport on a global level, both with the professional support of the Japanese shock absorbers for the WRX and WRC. Counting on his successful sports campaign as a driver in the 90’s with Toyota.
Which left the Monte Carlo Rally, with the princely victory of the Belgian Thierry Neuville, who drives the fabulous Hyundai Coupe i20 WRC Plus.

An exquisite and unique report to Mr. Yasuo Hiraoka, the head of Subaru Tecnica International, (STI), who thanks to the management of «kumi» Shinozaki, we were able to make this fantastic review with Mitaka’s boss.
Oliver Solberg, and his debut with the Fabia R5 EVO in Torsby.

JESSICA VERZIN, the blonde Italian girl, who is in charge of the professional catering work for W RACING PROJECT for the 2019 world champion team of constructors, Hyundai Motorsport GmbH, stands out in the publication, showing her feminine and sensual side, and confirming the excellent work that WRP is doing, to provide a fantastic food service, from Italy to
the whole WRC Plus circus.

Finally the new French weapon of Renault Sport Racing of France, the New CLIO Rally 5, which was shown as car 0 in Monte Carlo and debuts in the Mexican Rally Azteca with the Argentinean driver Martin Suriani.
Leaves a bitter and sad taste the postponement of the 40 years of the Rally of the Republic of Argentina, but it is a reason of world health, that exceeds to all, and the first thing is the common sense and the prevention of all.
We expect news soon, with the 2 month interval that the WRC will have, after the dispute in the WRC 2020 in Leon.
