Paddon triumphs in Argentine thriller

Paddon triumphs in Argentine thriller


Hayden Paddon scored his first WRC victory at YPF Rally Argentina on Sunday afternoon after fighting off world champion Sébastien Ogier in a thrilling finale to a scintillating last day duel.

The pair were separated by just 2.6sec ahead of the final legendary El Condor speed test, but Paddon stunned the Frenchman to hurtle down the rock-strewn mountain almost 12sec faster and secure a 14.3sec winning margin in his Hyundai i20.

He became the first New Zealand driver to win a WRC round in the championship’s 43-year history and crushed Volkswagen’s ambitions of securing an unprecedented 13 consecutive victories.

"I can’t believe it, I really didn’t think I stood a chance before the last stage after losing time to Ogier this morning," said Paddon, who celebrated his 29th birthday the day before the start. "I gave that last stage everything I had. Tight and twisty roads like El Condor aren’t my strength but I drove the stage of my life."

Rally Argentina: Paddon leads Argentina as Latvala crashes


Hayden Paddon is on course for his maiden WRC victory after Jari-Matti Latvala rolled out of the lead of YPF Rally Argentina on Saturday afternoon.

Paddon, seeking to become the first New Zealander to win a WRC round, ended the penultimate leg of the four-day event with a 29.8sec advantage over championship leader Sébastien Ogier. Less than 60km of gravel speed tests remain tomorrow.

Latvala seemed to have withstood a determined charge from Paddon this morning to enter the penultimate special stage with a 14.5sec advantage in his Volkswagen Polo R. The Finn was almost seven seconds quicker midway through when he crashed heavily and retired.

Rally Argentina: Ogier targets WRC grand slam

Rally Argentina: Ogier targets WRC grand slam


Sébastien Ogier will complete a career grand slam of WRC event victories if he wins this week’s YPF Rally Argentina (21 - 24 April).

The rough road south American rally is the only one on the calendar* that Ogier has yet to win during a career which has netted 34 triumphs.

Success in Argentina has eluded the triple world champion, who scored his maiden win in Portugal in 2010, in six previous attempts. He finished runner-up to Sébastien Loeb in 2013 and Volkswagen team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala the following year.

"Argentina is the only rally on the calendar I have not yet won," said 32-year-old Ogier. "This year will not be easy either because we will once again be the first car onto the route. Whatever happens, I will do my best to improve my record here and to win for the first time.

Citroen Racing Completes Initial Testing Of Its 2017 World Rally Car

Citroen Racing Completes Initial Testing Of Its 2017 World Rally Car


On schedule, Citroën Racing has completed initial testing of the car that will be entered by the brand in the World Rally Championship from next season. On the gravel roads around the Château de Lastours and then in Fontjoncouse, Kris Meeke has already tested the reliability and performances of this new generation model.

First and foremost, it is worth remembering what a 2017-spec World Rally Car actually is. Because compared with the models that first appeared in 2011 the change is set to be dramatic, for eyes and ears alike! 55mm wider, the bodywork enjoys great aerodynamic freedom, with a front bumper fitted with a splitter, prominent air inlets and outlets, a rear diffuser, and so on. It is no accident that comparisons have been made with the legendary Group B cars of the 1980s!

Under the bonnet, the 1.6-litre direct injection turbo engine is now fitted with a 36mm booster flange, like the Citroën C-Elysée WTCCs. With some 380bhp under the right-hand pedal, the drivers will be able to savour the power on offer, especially as the minimum regulatory weight has been reduced by 25kg and the four-wheel drive now comes with a central differential that improves traction…

KAJETANOWICZ: DEFENDING ERC TITLE WILL BE TOUGHER THAN WINNING IT
Kajetan Kajetanowicz reckons defending his FIA European Rally Championship title could be even harder than winning it in the first place. The LOTOS Rally Team driver was speaking after slipping to second place on the final day of the season-opening Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Inglés last week. “It’s one thing to attack, another to defend,” said the Ford Fiesta R5-driving Pole. “The strong performance on the rally from Alexey [Lukyanuyk] and Mads Østberg just goes to show how tough the opposition will be this year. And we don’t know who is coming next either. I have a very tricky job to try and keep the title.” Kajetanowicz will head to next month’s Circuit of Ireland Rally with 29 points in the bag and he knows that he cannot afford any more mistakes in order to sustain his title challenge after he set his tyre pressures too high on Gran Canaria. “The strongest challenge is yet to come, so I have to try and be perfect everywhere,” he pointed out. “My lack of experience in the Canary Islands showed, and I made a mistake that meant I was lucky to stay in the rally. I could easily have come away with zero points.”
