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.”

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.
