Overview
It’s Tarmac next in the battle for 2019 FIA European Rally Championship glory as Rally Islas Canarias hosts the all-action ERC from 2-4 May.

Rally Islas Canarias in 100 words
With the stages climbing and descending at a frequent rate, drivers pay close attention to corner speed and lines to ensure optimal momentum is maintained, while precise car set-up and pacenote accuracy are vital. One of the notable features of the sealed stages is the abrasive surface, constructed partly from volcanic lava. It means grip levels are high and remain constant if it rains, although tyre wear can increase. However, with the opportunity to take ‘cuts’ through corners limited, the roads remain relatively debris-free. Returning to the ERC schedule in 2016, it’s a rally big on challenge and spectator numbers.

What’s new for 2019?
The Valleseco stage on leg two and the Valesquillo Free Practice and Qualifying Stage are new, while San Mateo and Gáldar get revised opening sections. As well as counting as round two of the Spanish Tarmac championship, Rally Islas Canarias is also a qualifying round of the new-for-2019 Spanish Supercampeonato from governing body RFEDA.

Talking points
*A record-breaking 120-car entry includes some of the best drivers from the European and Spanish championships, plus a number of competitors from the Canary Islands. They include Emma Falcón, the ERC Ladies’ Trophy winner from 2018 who steps up to R5 power, and event stalwart Luis Mónzon.

*Among the top Spaniards in action are current leaders of the national asphalt series and Supercampeonato, Pepe López and Xevi Pons, a former world championship regular.

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.”
