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.

Hyundai Motorsport adjusts driver line-up for Rally de Portugal

Hyundai Motorsport has revealed a revised three-car line-up for Rally de Portugal, round seven of the 2019 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)
Thierry Neuville/Nicolas Gilsoul and Dani Sordo/Carlos del Barrio will be joined by Sébastien Loeb/Daniel Elena for the gravel rally
The line-up reflects Hyundai Motorsport’s ambitions in an increasingly close and competitively fought manufacturers’ championship.

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.”
