Kelly Racing completes inaugural TCR Australia race

Kelly Racing completes first TCR Australia race

Sydney Motorsport Park, NSW (18 May, 2019) Today Kelly Racing completed its first qualifying and race in the TCR Australia series at Sydney Motorsport Park. While car issues held back the team’s ultimate performance, we were able to finish the race with all four cars avoiding damage and making it safely through to tomorrow’s races.

Please see below for quotes from Team Owner Todd Kelly and drivers.

Kelly Racing Team quotes

Todd Kelly, Team Owner

“This first race has been an experience, it’s been good and there’s been a few challenges. We’ve had a few teething problems with all four of the cars to be honest. We’ve got a handle on the two Astras now, the two Subarus we’re still working through but keeping in mind we’ve only just received these cars a little over a week ago and it’s early days so I’m sure we’ll get on top of it all but this first round has certainly been keeping us busy.

“But I couldn’t really be happier with the fact that we’ve got all four cars to the finish line and four cars nice and straight at the end of the race and we’ve learnt a huge amount about each and every one of them. The drivers have all done a fantastic job in dealing with the challenges and doing what’s required and I think there’s potential there.”

“I don’t think this track is particularly one of the stronger tracks that the Astra will race on, but I don’t really want to jump to any conclusions until we at least get another race under our belts.”

“Today I’ve been engineering Chelsea’s car and that’s been a really good experience, she has done a fantastic job and I really like how she goes about everything, she did a spot-on job in the race and did everything we asked of her.”

“We made a lot of progress and made some big changes on the car each time and we’ve got the car pretty nice now for her and her feedback is really good so I think there’s definitely potential there for us to improve tomorrow.”

André Heimgartner, #777 Kangan Institute Subaru WRX

“The first TCR was was a bit of a struggle, we had some gearbox issues which really got bad towards the end so we were only able to do what we did but it was a good little taste of what’s to come and hopefully we can get all of the little issues fixed and be able to race tomorrow.”

“It’s a different way of driving with the TCR, obviously being front wheel drive you really have to look after the front tyres because they’ll just run out on you straight away because you’re braking, turning in and accelerating through them.”

“The tyres were really starting to run out by the end of the race, started pushing wide here and there so it is what it is.”

Molly Taylor, #6 Castrol Racing Subaru WRX

“It was definitely a baptism of fire and I was expecting that and I wasn’t planning on spinning on the first lap, I tried to go around Alex around the outside and in hindsight there wasn’t the grip with cold tyres. Lesson learned there.”

“From there I was in no-mans land by the time I got back on the track so unfortunately I just got to cut some laps and feel what the car does over the progression of the race but there wasn’t much I could do from there. It was a good experience and onwards and upwards from here.”

“For me it’s kilometres, you have to experience everything to know what to do so there are going to be a lot of different scenarios that I’m going to have to experience but hopefully we can learn from that and stay a bit more in the race next time.”

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.
