HYUNDAI CONFIRMÓ A NEUVILLE, MIKKELSEN & SORDO PARA EL XION RALLY ARGENTINA 2019

 

 

Restan 44 días para que el Campeonato del Mundo FIA de Rally haga escala en el país y el XION Rally Argentina 2019 ya tiene confirmada la presencia del primer equipo constructor oficial: el Hyundai Shell Mobis World Rally Team con Thierry Neuville, Andreas Mikkelsen y Dani Sordo.

Hyundai no sólo se ha convertido en uno de los equipos animadores del WRC en estos últimos años sino que, también, ha demostrado que el Rally Argentina le sienta muy bien tomando como referencia los resultados obtenidos en los últimos años: dos triunfos en estas latitudes con Hayden Paddon en 2016 y con Thierry Neuville en 2017. Además, en la última edición completaron el podio con el 2° puesto del piloto belga y el 3° de Sordo.

Para la 39° edición del rally que organiza el Automóvil Club Argentino desde 1980, contará con los servicios de las mismas tripulaciones con la que estuvo presente el año pasado.

(11) Thierry Neuville y Nicolas Gilsoul: Esta dupla tiene tres subcampeonatos conseguidos en las temporadas 2016, 2017 y 2018. Este año tiene la misión de lograr la preciada corona de pilotos y de constructores, para una marca que ha mostrado desde su ingreso al certamen mundial en el 2014 que tiene todas las armas para obtenerlas.

Neuville, el único piloto de la marca que correrá todas las fechas de la temporada, ocupa actualmente el 3er puesto en el campeonato de pilotos con 55pts a sólo 10pts  de Sebastien Ogier (Citroën) y 6pts de Ott Tänak (Toyota).

En Argentina, Neuville consiguió su triunfo en 2017 luego de un mano a mano épico con Elfyn Evans al que venció por sólo 0,07 milésimas de segundo, y el año pasado finalizó en la segunda ubicación.

(89) Andreas Mikkelsen y Anders Jager-Amland: El piloto noruego se incorporó a finales del 2017 a Hyundai y, desde entonces, ha alternado una serie de actuaciones en el WRC que no alcanzaron a mostrar el potencial de este, el mismo que lo llevo a conocer el sabor de la victoria en tres oportunidades cuando formaba parte del VW Motorsport.  

En su actual team finalizó 6° en el campeonato de pilotos el 2018.

(6) Dani Sordo y Carlos del Barrio: este binomio lleva varios años en el WRC. El español pasó por Citroën, Mini Cooper WRC de Prodrive Holding de Gran Bretaña y desde 2014 integra forma parte de Hyundai Motrosport. Ha obtenido buenas actuaciones y el año pasado, con sólo 7 participaciones logró su mejor performance ubicándose en 5° en cinco.

 

 

Su mejor resultado en el Rally Argentina fue el 3° puesto alcanzado en la última edición.

En el WRC 2tambien se encuentran los primeros pilotos para afrontar la 39 ediciòn del XION Rally Argentina:

  • Desde Japón Takamato Katsuta con Daniel Barrit (Ford Fiesta R5).
  • El boliviano Marco Bulacia Wilkinson junto al argentino Fabian Cretu (Skoda Fabia R5).
  • De Argentina Martin Ibarra con Pablo Lema (Ford Fiesta R5). 
  • Augusto Lobo

Hyundai Motorsport adjusts driver line-up for Rally de Portugal

Alzenau, Germany

May 21, 2019 – Hyundai Motorsport has revealed a change to its crew line-up for the forthcoming Rally de Portugal, round seven of the 2019 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

Following a competitive performance at Rally Chile, Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena will take part in Portugal alongside the previously announced Thierry Neuville/Nicolas Gilsoul and Dani Sordo/Carlos del Barrio.

Loeb took third place in Chile, securing his first-ever podium in Hyundai Motorsport colours, and finishing as the highest placed Hyundai Motorsport crew. The result helped the team to retain its lead of the manufacturers’ championship after Neuville’s rally retirement.

Hyundai Motorsport holds a 29-point advantage in the title chase as the season approaches its halfway mark. The team has vowed to raise its game against tough opposition in another closely contested championship battle.

Andreas Mikkelsen and Anders Jæger-Amland will return to the i20 Coupe WRC for Rally Italia Sardegna next month.

Team Director Andrea Adamo said: “This decision was not taken lightly. We need to move forward as a team and make the most effective use of our versatile crew line-up. Sébastien and Daniel had a competitive event in Chile, and have found a good feeling in the car on gravel. We felt their contribution would allow us to increase our points-scoring potential in Portugal. We are trying hard to find a way to get Andreas’s confidence back and we are sure he will approach his next event, Sardinia, in the same way he was able to in Argentina. When you have a line-up like ours and look at the results from Chile, it’s necessary to react quickly.”

Sébastien Loeb said: “I had a great feeling with the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC in Chile, which was shown by our podium finish. I am pleased to have the chance to build some important momentum by taking part in Rally de Portugal. This is an unexpected decision but I am feeling in a positive frame of mind and determined to get another strong result for the team.”

Mechanical issues hold back Kelly Racing TCR performance

Sydney Motorsport Park, NSW (19 May, 2019) Unfortunately mechanical dramas hampered Kelly Racing’s final TCR Australia race for the weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park. The team was able to improve the cars from yesterday and fix the gearbox issues that held up André Heimgartner and Molly Taylor’s Subarus. All four cars were able to complete Race Two with good pace.

In the final race André was able to get into second position in the #777 Kangan Institute Subaru WRX, however a suspension failure during a close battle with Dylan O’Keefe put the car off the track at the second to last corner and out of the race.

Chelsea Angelo went off the track at the same spot in her #37 Dare Iced Coffee Holden Astra due to a steering failure and also didn’t complete the final race.

Alex Rullo’s #62 Castrol Racing Astra had a good chassis balance and was quick in the corners, however it really struggled with straight-line grunt. Molly Taylor’s Castrol Subaru WRX also improved over the day, but suffered a puncture during the final race.

It’s still early days with these TCR cars and team is looking forward to improving them in the coming weeks and hitting the track at Philip Island for round two.

Kelly Racing Team quotes

André Heimgartner, #777 Kangan Institute Subaru WRX

“It was a bit unfortunate we managed to have some good tyre strategy and made some good places up in the races before and we were on for a good result in race three, we had a faster car than Dylan so I think we would have eventually got past but it wasn’t to be today.”

“We had a suspension failure at the second to last corner and that was that so disappointing to say the least after all of the gearbox drama we had to finally be able to get somewhere and then have this, it’s pretty annoying but we’ll regroup and see what we can improve for next round.”

Molly Taylor, #6 Castrol Racing Subaru WRX

“I felt like I made a lot of progress today in the two races, the pace was better than where we ended up so I just need to now work on my overtaking skills to make the most of that. We had that plan going into race two and unfortunately we got a puncture early on and a few issues with the front end that we need to look at once we get back to the workshop.”

“Overall though it was a great weekend, I really enjoyed it all. The team was fantastic to work with and so supportive of me. I just want to thank Nikki too who was my engineer, it was her first time solo engineering a car and she did a great job. Looking forward to the next race at Philip Island.”
