Jyväskylä, 1st August 2015 – ŠKODA put on a strong showing with the Fabia R5 on the penultimate day of the Rally Finland, winning all eight special stages and consolidating their position at the top of the overall standings. Esapekka Lappi/Janne Ferm (FIN/FIN) go into the final day of their home event in a strong position, having built up a commanding lead over their team-mates Pontus Tidemand/Emil Axelsson (S/S) at the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC 2). Only 28.26 kilometres stand between the ŠKODA works team and their second successive World Championship victory.

​“We were able to stay in control. There was no need to take any risks but we kept up the fast pace. I really like our Fabia R5 and everything about it worked perfectly,” noted Lappi. He was involved in a fascinating duel with his team-mate Tidemand, as the two drivers competed for the best times for each stage. The Swedish driver recorded the fastest time on four occasions, just bettering the achievement of reigning European champion Lappi. In special stage 12, both drivers clocked a time of 10:30.0 to share first place.

“This duel with Esapekka was a lot of fun and the results were often really tight. We also didn’t give it 100 per cent but it’s all about keeping a cool head,” said Tidemand. Despite their composed driving styles, the two ŠKODA works duos in their Fabias were able to increase their lead over the competition. The most surprising event of the day was not the rain showers falling from the grey skies above Jyväskylä, but the appearance of a bear with her two cubs. She was in the vicinity of the Horkka special stage and had to be led away to safety by a helicopter.

Sunday’s stages on the gravel are expected to be even more exciting, as the fastest rally of the year comes to a conclusion with two attempts at the Myhinpää special stage. ŠKODA is in the perfect position to repeat the historic achievements at the Rally Poland four weeks ago, by celebrating another one-two victory.  

Number of the day for the Rally Finland: 15

18 special stages have taken place so far at the Rally Finland, and ŠKODA has emerged victorious on 15 of these. This rally is providing clear proof that the Fabia R5 is the fastest car taking part in WRC 2. Esapekka Lappi posted the best time on ten stages, and Pontus Tidemand did so on four occasions. The ŠKODA works drivers also shared one first place, finishing with identical times.

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.
Qatar, con el príncipe Nasser Al-Attiyah se encuentra en un momento aceptable con el presente en el MERC 2021, imponiendo su conducción al volante de la Polo GTI R5 del Autotek Motorsport de Gran Bretaña. 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.
The truncated schedule of the Speedagro Rally Argentina 2020, which has been postponed by the Coronavirus. And the Top Run of the Agnello brothers, who acquired a new generation Fabia R5 to run in the short term in the WRC3.
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.

NOBRE’S OPEN-BOOT POLICY IN THE ERC

Paulo Nobre completed stage five of Rally di Roma Capitale with his car boot open.

The FIA European Rally Championship regular from Brazilian explained that he forgot to close it properly prior to the run.

“I took out the [safety] helmets and forgot to close the boot so I make one special stage with the boot open so it was the opposite to Poland [when it was the bonnet that was open].”
