El Autom贸vil Club Argentino resolvi贸 homologar para Rally Argentino a los modelos R5 que compiten desde hace un tiempo en Europa, WRC2 y buena parte de sudam茅rica.

Los R5 ya son hace unos a帽os furor en Chile y Paraguay siguiendo los lineamientos de la FIA a nivel mundial.

En la Argentina por una cuesti贸n de costos y tambi茅n de conveniencia estos modelos eran resistidos por los principales equipos de Rally Argentino.

La CDA del ACA tom贸 cartas en el asunto y en las 煤ltimas horas emiti贸 el siguiente comunicado:

” La Mesa Directiva de la C.D.A., efectu贸 un amplio an谩lisis de la actividad del Rally en la Argentina, en especial de los autos participantes en la categor铆a.

A tal fin y teniendo en cuenta la l贸gica evoluci贸n que deber铆a tener la categor铆a de nuestro 谩mbito, tal como ocurre a nivel mundial y sudamericano, ha considerado conveniente facilitar la participaci贸n de pilotos y navegantes con autos de la categor铆a R5 resolviendo que, con homologaci贸n FIA podr谩n participar con puntos a partir del a帽o 2020 en el Campeonato Argentino de Rally, agreg谩ndose estos autos R5, a los autos homologados para dicho Campeonato.

Sin perjuicio de ello, durante la presente temporada, los participantes que adquieran unidades R5, podr谩n tomar parte de las competencias del Campeonato Argentino de Rally, en car谩cter de invitados fuera del puntaje del Campeonato”.

The stars aligned for Petter in Wales last week,as former team-members joined him at Wales Rally GB.

Petter lands the high five with another Wales Rally GB win

 

 

The Solberg story headlines at Wales Rally GB (again)
Emotional farewell as Petter signs off with a WRC 2 victory
Petter: 鈥淭hat鈥檚 a proper way to say goodbye.鈥
Oliver fastest on his first ever WRC outing
Stunning Saturday morning speed, Oliver beats everybody on just his third WRC stage
Mixed emotions doesn鈥檛 come close for the Solberg family following another thrilling week in Wales.

Petter and Oliver drove their Volkswagen Polo GTI R5s on one of the season鈥檚 most complicated and competitive rallies. Both have a story to tell鈥

For Petter, a four-time Wales Rally GB winner, the last week has been an astonishingly rapid run down memory lane. It鈥檚 seven years since the triple world champion competed in Britain, but it felt like yesterday when he delivered the dream: a fifth Wales Rally GB win 鈥 admittedly, this one was in the WRC 2 category.

This time, even Hollywood was almost lost for words.

鈥淚ncredible,鈥 he said. 鈥淯nbelievable. Since we planned the Farewell Tour at the start of the year, I wanted to come here and wanted to do GB. It was different this time with Oliver driving as well. The emotions were a little bit more complicated, but this result鈥 what can I say?

鈥淭he comeback starts now!鈥

Petter admitted returning to one of the season鈥檚 most complicated rallies was not straightforward.

鈥淚 didn鈥檛 underestimate how tough this would be? But maybe I forgot a little bit about how tough it was! This rally is one of the hardest in the championship and it always was 鈥 that鈥檚 one of the things that make it so special when you are having the success here.

鈥淭he days are long and the roads are so, so difficult to read and take confidence from, but when you get it right, it鈥檚 the best feeling in the world.鈥

More on that comeback?

鈥淒o you think I should? Maybe? No, we鈥檙e working on Oliver鈥檚 plan now. Oliver is the future for the Solberg story, mine is a little bit in the history now. Honestly, it鈥檚 been really nice, fun and a lot of emotions coming to this rally. I love this place and these people, so to share my last proper WRC round with Wales was so special for me and Phil.

鈥淭hat was the proper way to say goodbye.鈥

Back to the future鈥

In the last week, Oliver鈥檚 World Rally Championship dream got real.

After an already insanely successful rookie season of four-wheel drive rallying, where Oliver has become the youngest ever European Rally Championship event winner and taken America by storm with Subaru Motorsports USA, Wales Rally GB was the next mountain to climb.

Predictably, Oliver made short work of his big moment. He was fastest of all the R5 cars (including WRC 2 Pro and WRC 2) on just his third stage in the World Rally Championship.

Unfortunately, a misted-up windscreen spoiled SS1, while a smashed wheel rim on the second test ruled him out Friday. After a day by the north Wales seaside, Oliver was very much back in business on Saturday morning.

That鈥檚 when the fastest times started. Nobody drove an R5 car faster than Oliver through Dyfi and Myherin. Nobody.

Unfortunately, just as the weekend was starting to fly, Sweet Lamb turned sour and Saturday was done.

鈥淭he car stopped,鈥 said Oliver. 鈥淲e don鈥檛 know why. We checked everything, but it wasn鈥檛 possible to continue. We came to service and the team made lots of investigations, worked on the car and then I could come back again on Sunday.

鈥淥f course, it was disappointing that we couldn鈥檛 take the experience we wanted from all of the stages, but the thing I wanted to have a look at for myself was the speed.

鈥淚 have been asking myself for the whole time: 鈥淲here am I for the speed? How will I compare with the other guys?

鈥淲hen I came to the first stage on Saturday morning, it was really difficult. I had nothing to win and a lot to lose if I crashed. Honestly, we drove at around 95 per cent and the times were good.鈥

Good? Try sensational.

Through the 26-kilometre Dyfi test, Oliver was 9.1 seconds faster than any other R5 cars. And 24.7s up on Papa.

鈥淭hat was good,鈥 he said. 鈥淚 enjoyed that one 鈥 the grip was really good in places and this took me by surprise. I was braking early many times.鈥

In Myherin, Oliver could only manage fastest by 3.1s and this time Petter was just eight down.

After that, Saturday went south, but Sunday demonstrated more speed and more potential before he rolled in the penultimate test.

Oliver said: 鈥淭he end of the event wasn鈥檛 like we wanted, but the dream really has come true for me to be here. Wales and the World Rally Championship wasn鈥檛 like my Papa told me it would be. It was evenbetter.鈥

AND NOW FOR MORE鈥 AL-ATTIYAH CONSIDERING FULL ERC CAMPAIGN

 

 

Nasser Al-Attiyah celebrated his sixth Cyprus Rally victory on Sunday evening by revealing that he鈥檚 considering a full FIA European Rally Championship campaign in 2020.

Al-Attiyah, from Qatar, has enjoyed a long run of success in stage and cross-country rallying at both regional and international level.

He鈥檚 yet to tackle more than a handful of ERC events in any one season but that could change next year.

鈥淲e are thinking to the European [championship] next year, we will sit with the team and we will see,鈥 said Al-Attiyah, who drove an Autotek Motorsport-run Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to victory in Cyprus.

鈥淭o compete in different race [is the reason], we know everybody, the atmosphere in this European championship is really great, a family, and a lot of media. And when you win you win the race.鈥

In addition to a possible ERC bid, Al-Attiyah also confirmed he hopes to represent Qatar in skeet shooting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE GTE DOMINATES IN SIX HOURS OF FUJI

 

 

Aston Martin Racing clinches first Vantage GTE victory of WEC season
First double-class victory first for Aston Martin Vantage GTE in WEC
Team earns first double-podium for Vantage as sister car finishes third
TF Sport captures first win in WEC to cap an amazing month for team

Sunday 6 October, 2019, Fuji Speedway, Japan. The Aston Martin Vantage GTE clinched its first double victory in the FIA World Endurance Championship, with the car winning both the GTE Pro and Am classes of the 6 Hours of Fuji. It was Aston Martin’s first double triumph since the team managed it in Mexico in 2016.

Marco S酶rensen and Nicki Thiim delivered a perfectly-judged performance with the #95 Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE Pro car in Japan, to deliver their first win of the 2019-2020 season and their second since the car was introduced in May 2018. Meanwhile in GTE Am TF Sport dominated the race with a lights-to-flag victory, having started from the class pole position.

S酶rensen began the race from third, but quickly moved up to second in a first hour that stood out for its fantastically close racing between the three manufacturer teams in the Pro class. Once in front, thanks to a brilliant pass for the lead by the Dane on the pit straight using the tow of backmarker, he and team-mate Nicki Thiim (DEN) were able to establish control of the race.

The duo did briefly lose the lead to their team-mates Alex Lynn (GB) and Maxime Martin (BEL) in the #97 car, who undercut the #95 on an alternative strategy in the second hour, but after that the Danes managed the race and the intermittent rainy conditions perfectly. Lynn and Martin brought the sister Vantage GTE home in third, marking the first time the car has recorded a double-podium finish in GTE Pro.

It was the fifth win for Thiim and S酶rensen in the Dane Train, and the third victory for the Vantage GTE in the last six WEC events. It means that the Danes are now second in the GTE Pro drivers’ standing, one point off the lead, while Aston Martin is also second in the Manufacturers’ Championship with 65 points.

“Winning a race like the one we did today is why we all do it,” said S酶rensen. “It was great to be involved in the fight for the lead in the first hour of the race, and because we were leading, after that the race seemed to fly by. This was an important win for Aston Martin and and I am very proud for the team. I’m delighted.”

Thiim added: “It is a great feeling to be standing here as a winner. WEC GTE Pro has some of the best racing on the planet as you saw today. It was so close that we had to split strategies on the two cars to cover off the competition. That worked well for us and I’m really proud of the team who have worked so hard for this. They kept their focus and had the right mentality today which was why we were able to capitalise on the car’s pace. This is a fantastic result for Aston Martin.”

In only the second race since the Vantage GTE became eligible to race in the Am class, TF Sport produced an outstanding performance. Having started from pole position the bright red #90 car led all the way. Salih Yoluc became the first Turkish driver to win a WEC event, while for AMR works drivers Jonny Adam (GB) and Charlie Eastwood (IRL) it was the end of a long wait. TF Sport has finished second four times in the last two seasons prior to this win.

Aston Martin Racing Managing Director John Gaw added, 鈥淭his result is the perfect demonstration of the Vantage GTE’s potential. It was a great performance by the two Danes. Marco drove extremely well in the first hour and Nicki was outstanding throughout his stint and when the rain came. This was also the first opportunity for us to see our Technical partner Michelin’s new tyres in action on an equal footing in the dry against our rivals, and I think we’ve proven that we are very much in the fight. That Alex and Max also finished on the podium rounded off an excellent team effort. It was indeed a great day for Aston Martin, and I would like to wish TF Sport congratulations on an excellent and long overdue win in the GTE Am class.鈥

The next round of the FIA WEC takes place at Shanghai, in China, on 10 November.
