2016 WRC: Meeke masters Portugal for second win

2016 WRC: Meeke masters Portugal for second win


Kris Meeke became the fourth different winner in five WRC rounds this season after triumphing at Vodafone Rally de Portugal on Sunday afternoon.

The Northern Irishman, returning to the championship after missing the previous two rallies in the Americas, shook off the rust to win the four-day rough road event by 29.7sec in Citroën’s DS 3. It was his second success after victory in Argentina last year.

Thirty-six-year-old Meeke followed Sébastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Hayden Paddon onto the top step of the WRC podium this year after building a lead of almost a minute during the first part of the rally and measuring his pace through the final day-and-a-half.

He took the lead in the second stage on Friday morning and remained troublefree on the rocky mountain roads in the north of the country, making the most of clean, grippy conditions courtesy of a low start position.

2016 WRC: Meeke leads amid drama in Portugal


Kris Meeke led Vodafone Rally de Portugal on Friday night after dominating an action-packed day in the hills overlooking northern Spain.

The Briton, returning to the WRC after missing the previous two rounds, claimed the lead by winning this morning’s opening speed test. He was fastest in four more to head world championship leader Sébastien Ogier by 31.9sec with two days remaining.

Hayden Paddon, winner of the previous round in Argentina, and Ott Tänak provided the drama. Both rolled at the same place this afternoon and their cars caught fire, fierce flames reducing Paddon’s car to a shell in minutes. Both drivers and co-drivers were unhurt.

Two stage wins this morning enabled Meeke to build a 11.5sec lead in Citroën’s DS 3 over Ogier, fastest in last night’s curtain-raising test. As the gravel roads became heavily rutted, he stretched his lead to 35.2sec in the repeat pass, before Ogier narrowed the gap in the final two asphalt street tests in Porto.

2016 WRC: Meeke retains control in Portugal


Kris Meeke will carry a comfortable lead into the final leg of Vodafone Rally de Portugal after distancing world champion Sébastien Ogier over rough mountain roads on Saturday. Meeke, returning to FIA World Rally Championship action after a two-event absence, completed a clean sweep of wins in the three morning stages to extend his lead to almost a minute. He measured his pace over rougher afternoon roads to lead tonight by 45.3sec.

Aware of the dangers on the rock-strewn gravel tracks, Meeke opted to carry two spare wheels in Citroën’s DS 3 instead of the usual one to guard against punctures. He needed neither but had to contend with different handling in the heavier car.

Paddon: My targets stay the same


Haydon Paddon refuses to let his breakthrough WRC victory in Argentina last month alter his season’s targets as he prepares for this week’s Vodafone Rally de Portugal (19 - 22 May). The New Zealander held off Sébastien Ogier in a dramatic finale to secure a popular maiden win, but is adamant he will continue to use this season to put building blocks in place for a future title challenge.

"The win in Argentina was definitely a confidence booster but my feet remain firmly on the ground," said the 29-year-old Hyundai i20 driver. "We know that in equal conditions we still have work to do to become a regular challenger to Seb.

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: Latvala out front after opening leg in Argentina


Jari-Matti Latvala made a determined start in his quest for back-to-back FIA World Rally Championship wins by leading YPF Rally Argentina after Friday’s first full day of action.

Latvala, victorious at the previous round in Mexico, won four of today’s eight speed tests to head Volkswagen Polo R team-mate Sébastien Ogier by 7.9sec.

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…
