Dual surface challenge ahead for the Yaris WRC in Spain

The TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team faces a fresh challenge on Rally de España (October 5-8): the only round of the FIA World Rally Championship run on both gravel and asphalt. This mixed-surface event will provide a thorough test of the development of the Yaris WRC during its first season. Already, the car has won on snow in Sweden in the hands of Jari-Matti Latvala and on gravel in Finland with Esapekka Lappi. Progress has been made on asphalt too as seen last time out in Germany, where Juho Hänninen finished fourth and all three drivers took stage wins.

Historically, the Spanish round of the WRC has been run over the smooth, fast and flowing asphalt roads of Catalunya, which are similar to racing circuits in their characteristics. Since 2010, these stages have been preceded by a day on gravel. Teams are required to transfer the cars from gravel to asphalt specification within a 75-minute service on Friday evening.

The rally begins on Thursday evening with a ceremonial start in the service park in Salou ahead of three stages all run twice on Friday run mostly on gravel – although the 38.95-kilometre Terra Alta test features sections of asphalt. Saturday features two loops of three stages followed by a Salou seafront test and there are six more stages on Sunday.

Following the launch of EchoCam on Rally Finland, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing and its partner Microsoft will offer HoloLens mixed reality technology on Rally de España as a trial. It will be available at the TGR fan booth at the service park from Thursday to Saturday.

Quotes:
Tommi Mäkinen (Team Principal) 
“Spain will be something completely unknown for me, as I have never driven the rally like it is nowadays with a mix of gravel and asphalt. I don’t know what to expect personally, but of course Jari-Matti knows the challenges very well. Having two surfaces will require work from the engineers and the mechanics, as well as quite a lot of extra equipment. I am sure though that everybody is prepared and knows what to do when the cars arrive into service in order to change all the necessary parts. We have been making some good steps forward with the car and I hope that with more new items and new ideas, we can make some small improvements again in Spain.”

Jari-Matti Latvala (Driver car 10) 
“I like the combination in Spain of having the first day on gravel and then two days on asphalt. They are the best asphalt roads in the championship – as close to a race circuit as is possible – and the gravel stages are also quite good. I did two days of testing for Spain this week: on the asphalt, we were focused on the suspension, and on gravel we concentrated on the differential. The change of surface creates extra work for the mechanics and the engineers, and as drivers we need to adapt our driving style overnight,. Our car showed winning speed on gravel in Finland and the performance was also there on asphalt in Germany, so I believe we should be very competitive.”

Juho Hänninen (Driver car 11) 
“The car has felt good in testing, just like it did in Germany. We plan to continue in the same way in Spain. Friday will be challenging for me because the stages are exactly the same as recent years and I haven’t done this rally for a while, so I will need to push a lot on Friday in order to be in the fight. But unless it rains like last year, I don’t think the time differences will be too big. Then there will be some new stages on Saturday and Sunday, which should help.”

Esapekka Lappi (Driver car 12) 
“Spain is a really challenging rally with the mix of gravel and asphalt. It’s a completely different type of rally to what we are used to. The gravel part is similar to Portugal in my opinion, and then the asphalt stages are quite unique: I think they’re the best stages on asphalt in the world. They are pretty clean and smooth, and are not as twisty as Corsica and not as narrow as Germany, so really enjoyable to drive. I’m really looking forward to it. There were some ups and downs in Germany but in the end, we could match the speed of the others and our performance should be good on both surfaces.”

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.
