Alzenau, Germany
January 17, 2022 – The first chapter of a new challenge in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) begins at Rallye Monte-Carlo this weekend (January 20-23), with Hyundai Motorsport focusing on making a fast start to the Rally1 hybrid era.
Battling for victory in the new Hyundai i20 N Rally1 will be a line-up that boasts a combination of youth and experience, as the Alzenau-based team targets a renewed challenge for the manufacturers’ title in 2022.
Competing alongside the established pairs of Thierry Neuville/Martijn Wydaeghe and Ott Tänak/Martin Järveoja will be the youngest Hyundai Motorsport crew in the team’s history: 20-year-old Swede Oliver Solberg and his 27-year-old co-driver Elliott Edmondson. All three crews have worked extensively with Hyundai Motorsport’s new challenger ahead of the event in a bid to power themselves to the top of the classification over the course of the four-day rally.
Due to its treacherous and ever-changing conditions – which can feature a mixture of tarmac, snow and ice in a single stage – Rallye Monte-Carlo is one of the most challenging and unpredictable events on the WRC calendar. The 2022 edition of the rally will feature a new service park in Monaco instead of Gap, which had been the base of the event since 2014. There are also changes for the crews to manage on the stages, with almost 95% of the route modified from the 2021 itinerary.
After a three-day recce, Rallye Monte-Carlo will begin on Thursday January 20 with an opening ceremony in the iconic Casino Square, before the crews take on two stages under the cover of darkness. Friday will push the brand-new Rally1 cars to the limit, with the day’s itinerary consisting of six stages without a midday service. Instead, there will be only a single tyre-changing opportunity sandwiched between nearly 100km of mountain stages. Saturday features five more demanding tests covering a competitive distance of 92.46km. Similarly to Friday, the final day of the event has no service, as crews tackle four more stages in the Alps to determine the final positions.
Hyundai Motorsport’s preparations for the 90th edition of Rallye Monte-Carlo began in early December, with its crews putting the new Hyundai i20 N Rally1 through its paces amidst wintery conditions in the French Alps. The team conducted its final pre-event test last week in the Gap area, giving the drivers and engineers the opportunity to fine-tune the car’s set-up before heading to the start line for the season opener.
Deputy Team Director Julien Moncet said: “We are excited to see the debut of the new hybrid powered Rally1 cars. This will be the culmination of an intensive period of technical development from our entire organisation. Our new car has undergone significant testing to prepare us for Monte-Carlo, which will be a tough event for all competitors. Reliability will play a key role as we put the new cars through their paces. For Hyundai Motorsport, our long-term target this year is to fight once again for the WRC titles. We know to achieve that it would be a big advantage to secure a strong result in the opening round. As a team, we will do all we can to get 2022 off to a positive start with our three crews.”

Neuville said: “Our main target in Monte-Carlo is to finish and gain experience in the car. I don’t think we are going to have a completely dry event but I don’t think it will be full of snow either; as usual, we are expecting a mix of conditions. Because of this, it’s very hard to have the perfect tyre choice for all the stages, so it’s all about compromise next weekend – the driver who does it best is going to be the most competitive. Choosing the tyres is not so easy because you have to collect a lot of information, trust yourself and commit. It will be a challenge, but I like driving in these conditions, so it is going to be exciting.”
Crew Notes: Ott Tänak/Martin Järveoja (#8 Hyundai i20 N Rally1)

Tänak said: “I think there is some uncertainty heading to Monte-Carlo, so it is important that we get through the rally without any major issues and keep the car running so we gain as much experience as possible – that will be the priority. Rallye Monte-Carlo is not as much about pure performance; it is about the reliability and the small decisions you make. Of course we want to finish well and score many points for the championship this weekend. The very first stage in the dark with the new car will certainly be an adventure.”
Crew Notes: Oliver Solberg/Elliott Edmondson (#2 Hyundai i20 N Rally1)

Solberg said: “Starting my first WRC campaign in Monte-Carlo is going to be very exciting. I think we have realistic expectations for the event – the most important part for us is just finishing and helping the team as much as possible. Rallye Monte-Carlo is an event where everything can happen; a stage can start with snow and end with tarmac, so it’s a very interesting and unpredictable way to begin the season with the new cars, but it’s also very exciting. I know I will take some time to find my feet but I have the best guys in the team to learn from.”

Rallye Monte-Carlo kicks off on Thursday with an opening ceremony in Monaco followed by two stages run in the dark: Luceram / Lantosque (15.20km) and La Bollène-Vésubie / Moulinet (23.25km)

EL TRAMO LUNAR ARGENTINO 🇦🇷 🌎
SS 9/11 – GIULIO CESARE – MINA CLAVERO – 19,33 Km – 24 de abril – Hora: 10:13/13:36
El solo nombre de este especial lo define. Uno de los clásicos cordobeses, conocido y elogiado en el ámbito del rally mundial ¡Es el tramo que Jorge Raúl Recalde corría sin que sus navegantes leyeran la hoja de ruta, lo sabía de memoria! En esta oportunidad se correrá bajando hacia Mina Clavero. El comienzo es serpenteando entre las grandes piedras de las Altas Cumbres, con un tránsito un poco lento sobre un piso duro y algo roto. Luego mejora el piso, se hace un poco más veloz pero siempre sinuoso en un paisaje inigualable hasta Villa Benegas. Desde allí, es cada vez más veloz, con el piso que mejora mucho, pero que exige manejo hábil en cada metro. Sobre el final transita sobre el clásico Puente del Cura para terminar pocos metros después.

LA VIGENCIA DE CLAUDIO MENZI 🇦🇷 🌎 EN EL PROVINCIAL CORDOBÉS 🇦🇷 🌎
UN REGRESO A TODA ORQUESTA CON EL NISSAN MARCH DE LA CLASE RC5 🇦🇷 🌎
En un fin de semana muy interesante con la iniciación del Campeonato Provincial Cordobés de Rally, en la ciudad de La Calera, se llevó a cabo esta significativa competencia en la provincia mediterránea de nuestro país.
Con una masiva inscripción de binomios, alrededor de 128 anotados, donde lo más granado de la especialidad en esta región se dio cita. Con el vencedor de la general, el rio cuartense Juan Marchetto sobre un Mitsubishi del Grupo de Producción.
Mientras que en la divisional RC5, la victoria quedó en manos del cordobés, Claudio Menzi, navegado por Miguel Vera, incluyendo a la máquina nipona Nissan con su hermoso modelo March. Aventajando de punta a punta a sus rivales y dejando en claro su permanente intensidad sobre un auto de Rally. La idea del #Mariscal” es seguir en la totalidad del certamen y reeditar sus éxitos en el pasado, tanto en el Rally Nacional, como en la época dorada del Córdoba Rally Team junto a Martín Christie, Gabriel Pozzo y su reemplazante en ese entonces, Marcos Ligato.
Buena vidriera del Nissan March, que se impone con claridad en la división nutrida RC5 del clásico cordobés en La Calera.
