Bastia, 8 April 2018 – ŠKODA factory team Jan Kopecký and co-driver Pavel Dresler (CZE/CZE) achieved a dominant start-to-finish win in WRC 2 category at Rally France/Tour de Corse. Their young Norwegian teammates Ole Christian Veiby/Stig Rune Skjaermœn (NOR/NOR) drove two more fastest stage times and by just 1.8 seconds missed the podium, which was completed by Italian ŠKODA privateer Fabio Andolfi.

The second from three legs of the fourth round of the FIA World Rally Championship on Saturday brought mixed emotions for the team members of ŠKODA Motorsport. While Jan Kopecký with four stage wins stretched his WRC 2 lead to nearly one and a half minutes, teammate O.C. Veiby moved up to second place in the WRC 2 category standings after the second run through the longest stage of the day. But in the last test of the day, a malfunctioning gear link shift made the gearbox of his ŠKODA FABIA R5 stuck in first gear. Veiby lost more than two and a half minutes and as a result also second place. His rival, Citroën driver Bonato, was delayed by a false alarm of the GPS safety device in his car, which forced him to stop on stage eight. Hours later, the stewards gave him a time compensation, and Bonato moved back into second in WRC 2 category.

After his ŠKODA FABIA R5 had been successfully revised at the service on Saturday evening, at the restart on Sunday morning Ole Christian Veiby found himself in fourth position, more than 55 seconds behind Italian ŠKODA privateer Fabio Andolfi. All eyes were now on the young Norwegian youngster and the question was: Can he move back into the third position in WRC 2 and consequently onto the podium? The first of Sunday’s two stages was the gruelling 55.17 kilometres test between Vero and Sarrola-Carcopino, which reached the highest geographical point of the rally with an altitude of more than 885 metres above sea level. Since 1986, this also was the longest stage of the Tour de Corse.

And Ole Christian Veiby drove a fantastic stage time, beating Andolfi by impressive 47.7 seconds and closing the gap to a mere 7.9 seconds before the final Power Stage. Kopecký meanwhile took a cautious approach: “I have a huge gap to the guys behind me. I avoided every stone on the road to just bring the car to the finish in one piece. We are happy, our ŠKODAFABIA R5 was working perfectly.” On the last stage, the Czech Champion even managed to defend eighth position in the overall classification. O.C. Veiby set the last fastest time in the WRC 2 category, but in the end missed the podium by just 1.8 seconds. Third went to Italian ŠKODA privateer Fabio Andolfi.

ŠKODA Motorsport boss Michal Hrabánek was delighted: “Our perfect season continues. Now we have a double lead in the WRC 2 category standings of the FIA World Rally Championship. Jan demonstrated that on asphalt he is the man to beat in WRC 2. And O.C. impressed me not only with his pure speed and fantastic stage times. He also proved his great moral after his mishap during leg two and was very close to fight back into a podium position.”

Andolfi wins Tour de Corse in WRC 2: “Thanks to Motorsport Italia and ACI Team Italia”

 

 

Good start for Motorsport Italia and ACI Team Italia. Fabio Andolfi won Tour de Corse, triumphing in an exciting WRC 2 category race aboard the ŠKODA Fabia of Max Rendina’s team. Andolfi – sailed by Scattolin – took the Russian Gryazin, second classified, almost 4 ″ away.

The Italian driver also did well in the overall standings, where he achieved an excellent 11th place, just under 8″ from the eternal Loeb and 11″ from the winner Neuville. So much joy for Andolfi at the end: “Difficult race, I’m happy for the final result. I thank Motorsport Italia, ACI Team Italia and Pirelli for the support. I can’t wait to get back in the car ”.
Team Manager Bruno De Pianto was also happy: “Today was a special day because it had a sweet ending but it could have been bitter as we only managed to overturn it in the last race. Too bad for last night, as Fabio had a good advantage and was given the time set for everyone. Clearly this is part of the rally, it’s the sport. We’re sorry for Camilli, he was going strong, it’s always a shame when a pilot comes out. After today however we look to the future and to the next races with a greater awareness in our means “.

Overview
The 2019 FIA European Rally Championship fires up in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean from 21-23 March when the Azores Rallye hosts the opening exchanges of what is set to be another action-packed chase for on-stage glory. Established stars, national champions, category stalwarts – plus a host of young prospects aiming to prove their talent in ERC Junior – will be competing on a mixture of asphalt and gravel events during an eight-round season between now and November. And they will do so in an exciting array of machinery. With several stages from the Azores broadcast live, a thrilling start to the season is in store.

Azores Rallye in 100 words
Based on São Miguel, the mid-Atlantic archipelago’s largest island, the event celebrated turning 50 in 2015 and remains one of the most spectacular on the international calendar. Gravel tests criss-cross breath-taking scenery and lush countryside, and are characterised by their sandy surface and narrow, undulating nature. And because the stages are often no wider than the width of a car, there is no margin for error, particularly on the iconic Sete Cidades, which runs along the rim of a volcanic crater lake, and where the weather can switch from sunshine to showers to fog in the blink of an eye.

What’s new for 2019?
Several changes have been made to this year’s route with new and tweaked stages – including the untried Mediana Remédios test on leg one. The City Show, the non-competitive pre-rally demonstration run in Ponta Delgada on Wednesday evening, has also been revised as organisers usher in the changes.

Changes to the ERC include the renaming of the ERC Junior categories: ERC Junior Under 28 becomes ERC1 Junior, ERC Junior U27 becomes ERC3 Junior with continued support from Pirelli. Meanwhile, R4-K and RGT cars are eligible for ERC2 points, while Rally Hungary joins the calendar for the first time as the deciding round in November.

Don’t miss!
Seven stages, including both runs of Sete Cidades on Friday 22 March, will be broadcast live on RTP Açores, and streamed on the official ERC website, FIAERC.com, and social media channels. However, before viewers are treated to the stunning Sete Cidades, they can enjoy the battle on the streets of Ponta Delgada, where the City Show takes place on the evening of Wednesday 20 March. On Thursday 21 March, fans can then watch live the event-opening Coroa da Mata stage followed by action from the Marques superspecial, which runs through the amphitheatre of a quarry. As well as the two visits to Sete Cidades, Friday’s live programming also includes the return to the Marques superspecial. Live coverage from Tronqueira, which hosts the second stage on Saturday 23 March and the rally’s deciding test that afternoon, will be the focus of leg three’s live output, which concludes with the podium finish in Ponta Delgada in early evening.

The Azores archipelago is located roughly equidistant between Lisbon and New York and is made up of nine islands. The fertile soil is perfect for a variety of crops and grazing for livestock.

Ribeira Grande, on São Miguel’s north coast, is becoming established as Portugal’s surfing capital with a number of national and international events being hosted there.
