AL-ATTIYAH?? DELIVERS MINT START TO NEW POLO ?? CAMPAIGN AND EXTENDS HIS LEAD IN QATAR ??INTERNATIONAL RALLY ?

2019 Manateq Qatar International Rally 
FIA Middle East Rally Championship, round 1
Day One

LUSAIL (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah delivered a mint start to his new rallying campaign in a new Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to extend his overall lead in the Manateq Qatar International Rally to 1min 24.5sec on Friday.

The 13-time winner of the rally and French navigator Matthieu Baumel won each of the day’s four gravel special stages in the north of the country and showed the true potential of the new factory-supported car being run by Autotek Motorsport.

A relaxed Al-Attiyah said: “We are quite happy with the car and everything is working well. It is similar to the Ford and the Škoda. R5 is R5, but I had a good feeling from the beginning. No water on the stages this morning, but it was a little bit windy and dusty. We did a good job. The stages today were a little bit rough. For the R5, they were okay, but when you see the Group N have a lot of problem, this is the Qatar Rally. Tomorrow the stages are much better. We try to keep a good pace and manage our lead.”

Friday – as it happened

After a windy and damp start to proceedings, the weather forecast was set to improve as Al-Attiyah headed to the far north of Qatar and the morning’s 19.86km special stage at Al-Ruwais.

The Qatari was set to defend an already commanding 23.5-second advantage and he posted a target time of 10min 42.2sec and extends his lead over Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari to 43.8 seconds.

The three-time Dakar winner was in a class of his own, although Hamed bin Eid Al-Thani put in a spirited display to set the fourth quickest time on his first gravel stage in an R5.

Teams then tackled another northerly special – the 18.94km of Al-Ghariyah – before heading to remote refuelling. Al-Attiyah was quickest again but Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari was getting used to being back behind the wheel and only dropped 3.3 seconds to his rival.

Al-Attiyah was 4.2 seconds faster on his second run through Al-Ruwais and saw his lead grow to 1min 12.8sec. 
The leader coasted through the re-run of Al-Ghariyah to reach the end-of-day service at Lusail with an advantage of 1min 24.5sec. It had been a low pressure first day for the Qatari in the new Volkswagen.

Saturday

Two loops of three special stages bring the competitive action to a close in Qatar on Saturday in the north of the country. Runs through Eraida (19.39km), Al-Dhakira (24.13km) and Al-Khor (18.18km) take place at 08.35hrs, 09.08hrs and 09.50hrs and precede a return to service at the Lusail Sports Centre.

The three timed tests are repeated at 12.30hrs, 13.03hrs and 13.45hrs and surviving crews then return to Lusail for a final service.

The post-event press conference and ceremonial finish will then take place at Souk Waqif in downtown Doha for a second consecutive year with the PC starting at 19.50hrs and the prize giving taking centre stage at 20.15hrs live on Al-Rayyan television.

Victoria de Dani Sordo en Cerdeña

 

 

Dani Sordo y Carlos del Barrio se han adjudicado el Rally de Italia-Cerdeña, octava prueba puntuable para el Campeonato del Mundo de Rallyes 2019.

Después de un espectacular fin de semana, en el que han rodado a muy buen ritmo siendo líderes durante gran parte de la prueba, Sordo y Del Barrio logran su segunda victoria en un rally de la máxima categoría tras la conseguida en el Rally de Alemania 2013. Dani consigue de esta forma su podio número cuarenta y cinco en el mundial. Este importante triunfo de Dani y Carlos otorga además importantes puntos a su equipo Hyundai Motorsport en la clasificación de constructores.

Dani se mostraba emocionado nada más terminar el rally: “‪No tengo palabras para describir esto. Hemos marcado muy buenos tiempos a lo largo de todo el fin de semana, pero hoy partíamos desde la segunda posición y no era fácil mantener un ritmo alto sin cometer errores. Una lástima el error de Tänak en el último tramo, pero es increíble para mí ganar aquí en Cerdeña. Lo siento por Ott”, comentaba el piloto español de Hyundai Motorsport.

NEW GENERATION OF WRC 🌏 CARS IN 2022

NEW GENERATION OF WRC 🌏 CARS IN 2022

FIA World 🌏 Rally Championship 2019 – 2022

The Council approved the introduction of a new generation of WRC cars in 2022, with a five-year homologation cycle. Manufacturers will be allowed to use a production bodyshell or a prototype tubular structure to current WRC size guidelines, while the FIA is set to define carry-over elements from production vehicles for key visual elements. There will also be an option for ‘scaling’ of the body within prescribed limits, to allow larger cars to comply with dimension targets.

The cars will feature a supplementary hybrid system, to be comprised of common components and software for the first three years, with the potential for more technical freedom in 2024. The aim is to enable the cars to run on pure electric power in cities and provide an electric power boost on special stages.

A tyre tender covering all championship classes with 4WD cars will be issued for the period 2021-2024, helping to reduce costs by preventing an escalation in tyre development.

The Junior WRC programme will continue in its current format for the next two seasons. In addition to the existing prize structure of a Ford Fiesta R5 plus a support package to compete in WRC2, the 2020 winner would benefit from a potential path to WRC. Contingent upon then winning the WRC 2 Championship, the Junior WRC title-winner would have the opportunity to compete in two WRC outings in an M-Sport run car. To support this programme, M-Sport, in conjunction with Pirelli, has developed a national ‘feeder’ programme across Finland, the United Kingdom, Estonia and Italy that will allow them to step up into the world stage the following season.

The Council approved the long-term extension of the current Promoter, subject to a long-form agreement being signed.

Approval of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship calendar was deferred to the end of June 2019. In the intervening period it will consider the potential rotation of competitions.

STARD claims first World RX podium in Hell

 

 

Austrian FIA World Rallycross Championship team STARD scored a first ever podium at Hell in Norway with Latvian driver Janis Baumanis.

Team and driver battled through the qualifying stages of the event at the traditional rallycross circuit. Following a DNF in Q1, Janis Baumanis used fast pace in Q2 and consistent form in Q3 and Q4 to qualify for the semi-finals, but before the final stages of the event began, the heavens opened. Starting from the third row of the grid in semi-final one, Baumanis immediately took his joker on the first lap in torrentially wet conditions and climbed into a final position for the fourth time in five races with an overtake on the last lap.

In the final, former Euro RX Super1600 Champion Baumanis again took the joker on lap one, and climbed positions when drivers ahead took their joker laps. But, on lap five, Baumanis was delayed behind Liam Doran, who was slowed by technical issues and lost out on moving into a podium position on the final lap. Regardless, the Latvian driver challenged to the finish line.However, after the final the event winner was excluded for a technical infringement, lifting Baumanis into a career-first World RX podium, in only the fifth race for the latest iteration of the in-house developed STARD Ford Fiesta Supercar.

In the other Fiesta, Finnish driver Jani Paasonen improved throughout the event in his second start with STARD’s new Fiesta and was classified 14th, scoring three FIA World Championship points.
