2020 WRC: Target New Heights


M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Esapekka Lappi, Teemu Suninen and Gus Greensmith will be targeting new heights when the FIA World Rally Championship turns to gravel at next week’s Rally Mexico.

The EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC has a strong track record at this breath-taking event – never finishing shy of the podium – and the team are confident of conquering the heights of this much-loved event once again.

Focused in and around the UNESCO World Heritage site of Guanajuato, Rally Mexico boasts beautiful scenery amidst challenging terrain. The 30°C heat can be closer to 50°C in the cockpit, and the stages rise to more than 2,700 metres above sea level – where the oxygen starved air can see engine performance reduced by as much as 20 percent.

2020 WRC: Evans breaks clear on Friday to lead champion Tanak at Rally Sweden


Welshman ekes out eight-second lead with Ogier and Neuville close behind.

Elfyn Evans showed scintillating speed to lead world champion Ott Tänak after Friday’s opening leg of Rally Sweden.

The Welshman, driving a Toyota Yaris for only the second time, won two of the four forest road speed tests in Sweden and Norway. He finished second in the other two to build an 8.5sec advantage.

Plunging overnight temperatures meant the roads were a changeable mix of ice and gravel, with some snow making a belated but welcome appearance for this second round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Evans won the opening special stage, but Tänak trimmed his lead to just two-tenths of a second in the next. Another fastest time allowed the Yaris pilot to stretch his advantage over a day that was shortened before the start due to the unseasonably mild weather.
