Skoda Italia’s pairing dominated this round of the Italian Rally Championship. Simone Campedelli was second absolute on Ford Fiesta R5 gpl. Denis Colombini third on another Fabia R5. Federico Della Casa win the Gravel Trophy’s round on Ford Fiesta.

29 May, 2016

Cingoli (Macerata), 29 May 2016 – Umberto Scandola confirmed himself as king of the gravel, together with Guido D’Amore, on Skoda Fabia R5. He won the race for the fourth time in a row. This has also been a fair and square victory even though Simone Campedelli, Ford Fiesta R5 Gpl, and Denis Colombini, also on Skoda Fabia R5 tried to make his life more difficult.
The first was at the debut on the GPL powered Fiesta run by Orange 1 Racing prepared by Brc and impressed for the how easily he managed to post very quick times. The second, from St Marin and not fighting for the Italian Championship, confirmed his great skills on the gravel.
Right at the feet of the podium, the other two contenders of the Italian title: Giandomenico Basso on Ford Fiesta R5 run by BRC, petrol powered, and Paolo Andreucci, Peugeot 208 T16. Basso was certainly penalized by the peculiar tactic of BRC to field him on a card different from that normally employed for the Italian Rally Championship races to hand it over to Campedelli. He did not put in an exciting performance running below his possibilities. The Tuscan several times Italian champion was penalized by being first on both days, having to do a lot of road cleaning for the others, but also confirmed not to be at ease in this race.
Regarding the absolute classification, Andreucci is still leading as only Umberto Scandola ended the rally with some hopes to close in on the Tuscan driver.
The race organized by Prs Group was also valid for the Italian Rally Junior Championship, for the 2WD and for the Gravel Trophy.
Among the youngest, Giuseppe Testa had an extraordinary weekend together with Daniele Mangiarotti on the works Peugeot 208 R2. The Italian won both days securing the classification lead, getting past the Sicilian Marco Pollara, who had an incident that did not leave him physical consequences.
In the 2WD, Luca Panzani secured a double win on a Citroen Ds3 R2. He therefore continued a good battle with Ivan Ferrarotti and his Renault Clio. In the Gravel Trophy, Federico della Casa and Bernardi have been the main actors on the 208 R2, that had to retire in the second day.
In the second round of the Rally Gravel Trophy, Federico Della Casa dominated on Ford run by A Style Team. The Swiss proceeded Daniele Ceccoli, Skoda Fabia Super 2000, and Nicolò Marchioro, Peugeot 207 Super 2000. Thanks to this result, Ceccoli and Piercarlo Capolongo get the lead of the classification on the Skoda. Mauro Trentin, with Alice De Marco at the notes, were hit by bad luck and had to retire after sliding out of the road early into the race. Luigi Ricci also had a series of problems on his Subaru Impreza STI and ended at the back of the charts.
In the Italian R1 championship and Suzuki Rally Trophy the Swift R1B put in a great battle, as Lorenzo Coppe ended on top with Roberto Simioni. They have been great winners among the Under 25 winning the second round and taking the lead of the absolute classification, ahead of Jacopo Lucarelli and of the expert Claudio Vallino.
Jacopo Trevisani and Matteo Romano kept the lead of the Twingo R2 Gravel trophy, despite the great day two run by Giacomo Matteuzzi.

OGIER SUPERÓ A SORDO EN LA SEGUNDA ETAPA DE ASFALTO EN CATALUÑA Y VA POR SU CUARTO TÍTULO CON VOLKSWAGEN

OGIER SUPERÓ A SORDO EN LA SEGUNDA ETAPA DE ASFALTO EN CATALUÑA Y VA POR SU CUARTO TÍTULO CON VOLKSWAGEN.

VO1

ŠKODA HACE EL 1-2 EN LA WRC2 CON KOPECKÝ Y TIDEMAND.

M-SPORT & VW, PRESENTARÁN SUS NUEVOS COCHES WRC 2017 A MEDIADOS DE DICIEMBRE.

15 de Octubre 2016

La ilusión del cántabro Dani Sordo, del día de hoy, era mantener la lígera diferencia que cosechó ayer en la etapa de ripio mojado con algunos sectores con barro tripulando su efectivo Hyundai i20 WRC New Generation.

Pero hoy nada fue sencillo para el español, en primera instancia con problemas de subviraje en su unidad coreana armada en la factoría alemana de Alzenau, que le hicieron perder al término de la jornada valiosos segundos. Sin embargo, hay que decir, que el galo Sébastien Ogier realizó una remontada de aquellas, estableciendo cronos al más no poder, con un ataque frénetico sobre el piloto local de Hyundai, demostrando porque es el conductor de la especialidad del momento con casi cuatro coronas consecutivas en su haber, pilotando de forma perfecta el Polo R WRC junto a su amigo e inseparable navegante Julien Ingrassia. Descontando los 17 segundos que había de distancia entre ambos al finalizar el día inicial de tierra y ahora aventajando por 5.8 segundos contra la motivación intacta que origina Sordo, en el Rally de su casa, frente a su público y ante la gran oportunidad de cortar la racha negativa de no poder ganar en Cataluña.

En tercer escalón y en discordia se ubicó el belga Thierry Neuville, con el otro i20 WRC oficial de última evolución, con tiempos aceptables, pero lejos de Ogier y Sordo, y favoreciéndose, tras al abandono sorpresivo por vuelco del noruego Andreas Mikkelsen en la prueba especial 12, cuándo ocupaba la tercera plaza y tenía opciones de podio. Sin poder implementar su gran actuación del 2015, el rubio de Noruega, se va con las manos vacías de Salou.

En tanto que el fines Jari-Matti Latvala ha tenido un Rally para el olvido con el Polo R WRC número 2, con muchos inconvenientes, tanto en errores de conducción, con trompos, etc y pérdida de tiempo relevante en los varios pinchazos que lo consumió, quedando entre los 20 mejores clasificados al culminar este día sábado en PortAventura.

El “Kiwi” Hayden Paddon se recompuso de la mala puesta a punto del viernes y sostuvo un plan de trabajo constante a bordo de su i20 WRC, optando por la interesante cuarta posición, teniendo al británico Kris Meeke de la DS3 WRC by Abu Dhabi y al noruego Mads Ostberg de M-Sport entre el quinto y sexto puesto respectivamente, a sus espaldas, del talento de Nueva Zelanda, que se anima a decir, que sueña con el podio en suelo catalán.

Mientras que en la WRC2, las cosas están muy claras, solo una escuadra que domina a voluntad, los checos de ŠKODA, con sus dos estrellas que manejaron formidablemente sus Fabia R5, el experimentado Jan Kopecký y el sueco Pontus Tidemand. Que desde mañana buscarán el 1-2 fantástico para la marca que gestiona Michal Hräbanek y Pavel Hortek, desde su cuartel general ligado a Praga en Mladá Bolesvav.

Para finalizar dos cosas, los constructores M-Sport de Ford y Volkswagen Motorsport han confirmado que mostrarán próximamente a la prensa especializada a mediados del mes de diciembre sus nuevos autos de cara al revolucionario WRC 2017. Los esperados nuevos Fiesta RS WRC y VW Polo R WRC con las innovaciones aligeradas de las especificaciones que propone la FIA bajo la regulación WRCar 017 desde Montecarlo, la apertura central del Mundial en el año próximo.

54 – RallyRACC-Cataluña-Costa Daurada WRC 2016

Clasificación General Día 2

1-Ogier-Ingrassia-VW Polo R WRC – 2h.35m.12s.8/10 99.813 km/h.

3-Neuvile-Gilsoul-Hyundai i20 WRC New Generation -a 1m.03s9/10.

DANI SORDO CON POCAS CHANCES DE PODIO EN EL TOUR DE CORSE.

Rally de Córcega Día 1

Dani Sordo pierde opciones de podio en Córcega.

Cuando ocupaba la tercera posición provisional del Rally Tour de Corse, Dani Sordo se ha visto retrasado debido a un pinchazo en la última especial disputada hoy.

Sordo se ha visto apeado de la lucha por el podio por el que peleaba igual que en el pasado Rally de Alemania, y afrontará la segunda etapa de la prueba corsa en novena posición con el objetivo de llegar con el mayor número de puntos posibles el domingo a Porte-Vecchio, donde finalizará la presente edición del Rally Tour de Corse, décima prueba puntuable para el Campeonato del Mundo de Rallyes.

Dani empezaba la jornada acusando algo de subviraje en su Hyundai i20 WRC, a pesar de lo que marcaba el tercer mejor tiempo en la primera especial del día, Acqua Doria-Albitreccia, de 49,72 kilómetros. El piloto español del Hyundai Shell World Rally Team se iba encontrando más a gusto a medida que transcurría la etapa, pero pinchaba una de las ruedas traseras a pocos kilómetros del comienzo del último tramo cronometrado disputado hoy, perdiendo aproximadamente dos minutos: “Después de los tramos de la mañana me encontraba más a gusto con el coche, y he conservado los neumáticos en el primer tramo de la tarde de cara al último, pero he notado que el coche se movía de la parte trasera hasta que hemos comprobado que se trataba de un pinchazo y hemos tenido que parar a cambiar la rueda en pleno tramo. Ha sido decepcionante. No sé cómo ha ocurrido. Una pena, ya que nos encontrábamos en una buena tercera plaza. Intentaremos ganar alguna posición de aquí al domingo”, explicaba Sordo tras finalizar el último tramo disputado hoy.

Con salida y llegada desde Bastia, al norte de la isla, la jornada de mañana sábado será la más larga del Rally Tour de Corse y estará compuesta de dos bucles a los tramos La Porta-Valle di Rostino (53,72 kilómetros) y Novella-Pietralba (30,80 kilómetros).

HOME, SPEED HOME – OGIER IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN ON DAY OF THE RALLY FRANCE

Ogier in a league of his own on day one of the Rally France.

Four stages, four fastest times – Ogier/Ingrassia open commanding lead on home soil
Latvala/Anttila and Mikkelsen/Jæger within touching distance of the podium in third and fourth

30th September 2016

FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP (WRC)
RALLY FRANCE

Wolfsburg (30 September 2016). It doesn’t get any better than this. Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F) made a perfect start to the Rally France on Corsica in their Polo R WRC. The three-time world champions, who could claim the title for the fourth time in a row with victory at their home race – provided other results go their way – won all four special stages on the opening day of round ten of this season’s FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). Two of the duos out to prevent the Frenchmen from getting their hands on the title this weekend are their Volkswagen team-mates, who are also on course for success: Jari-Matti Latvala/Mikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) ended day one in third place, just ahead of Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jæger (N/N) in fourth. Second place after 157.68 of 390.92 kilometres against the clock is occupied by Thierry Neuville/Nicolas Gilsoul (B/B, Hyundai). While Ogier/Ingrassia opened a commanding lead of 44 seconds, just 15 seconds separate the chasing pack of three in their battle for second and third.

The opening day featured some typical Corsican special stages: narrow, winding roads and long sections put driver, co-driver and car through their paces in gorgeous autumn weather.

Quotes after day one of the Rally France

Sébastien Ogier, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #1
“An ideal opening day for Julien and me – beautiful stages, superb weather and a perfect car. The key to stage one was to find our rhythm. Looking at the lead we opened, we appear to have done just that. It was pretty hot in the cockpit in the afternoon, particularly on the long 50-kilometre stage. We have a similarly demanding day ahead of us tomorrow, particularly if the weather deteriorates. However, we obviously want to continue as we were today, to make sure we win in the end. That is definitely the goal at our home rally.”

Jari-Matti Latvala, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #2
“We were a little too cautious at first, but gradually found our rhythm the further into the rally we got. We can make a few improvements here and there, for example when braking, but apart from that we are racing the right way for the Rally Corsica. That only makes the outstanding times set by our team-mate Sébastien Ogier all the more astonishing. Hats off to his performance. We will obviously try to stick with him tomorrow and on Sunday. If we can, we have a good chance of finishing on the podium.”

Andreas Mikkelsen, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #9
“We are not so much focusing on winning the world championship, but more on securing second place. With that in mind, we are going nicely in fourth place. I struggled to know how hard to brake in the morning. Unfortunately, we lost a lot of time as a result. Apart from that, though, it was a good day for us, but we have two more challenging days ahead to come.”

Sven Smeets, Volkswagen Motorsport Director
“We could hardly hope for a better start to the Rally France. Sébastien Ogier was clearly in a league of his own, while Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen are also well-placed. First, third and fourth is more than we had expected and hoped for. However, everyone in the team is well aware that we are only one third of the way into the rally and we still have a lot of work ahead of us. If we remain as focused as we have been so far, there is a good chance we will be rewarded with a strong result.”

And then there was …

… a little milestone. Andreas Mikkelsen is contesting his 75th rally in the World Rally Championship at the Rally France – the 45th with Volkswagen and the tenth with his co-driver Anders Jæger. The Norwegian made his debut at the 2006 Rally Great Britain. Since then, he has finished on the podium on 18 occasions, including victories at the 2015 Rally Spain and the 2016 Rally Poland – all with the Polo R WRC.
