2020 WRC: Ready To Take Their Chance

2020 WRC: Ready To Take Their Chance


M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s young squad are ready to take their chance as the FIA World Rally Championship returns to action at next week’s Rallye Monte-Carlo – an event the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC has won twice in the past three years.

The traditional start to the season is one of the most demanding on the calendar and, as WRC 3 driver ‘PEDRO’ so aptly described, ‘the changeable weather can be as unpredictable as the roulette wheel.’

The mountainous stages offer everything from dry asphalt to full ice and snow, and the crews must master these challenges in darkness as well as daylight. In these varied conditions it’s often the best compromise that delivers, but confidence behind the wheel is also a must.

Building that confidence during a four-day test earlier this month, Esapekka Lappi, Teemu Suninen and Gus Greensmith got to grips with the top-specification Fiesta and are ready to get their 2020 season off to a strong start.

Competitive Field Entered For 2020 FIA Junior WRC Championship


The 2020 FIA Junior WRC Championship has accepted 16 entries for the opening round on Rally Sweden, representing a diverse selection of rallying’s next generation of superstars.

The 16 crews looking to be the next star of the FIA World Rally Championship represent 11 different countries across Europe and South America. Seven of 2019’s FIA Junior WRC crews return for 2020 including 2019 championship runner-up and Rookie Award winner, Tom Kristensson.

This year’s entrants will be vying for the biggest prize in rallying; the keys to an Ecoboost-powered M-Sport Fiesta R5 Mk II, 200 Pirelli tyres, free registration for WRC 3 in 2021 and five free WRC 3 entries in 2021. Should the 2020 champion go on to win the 2021 WRC 3 championship, they will then be awarded two drives with the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team in 2022.

2019 WRC: Neuville fights to disrupt Tanaks WRC title claim in Spain


Belgian eager to take battle to last race in Australia ahead of Sunday finale.

Thierry Neuville led RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España on Saturday night in a bold bid to carry his FIA World Rally Championship title fight with Ott Tänak into the final round.

He ended the penultimate leg with a 21.5sec advantage over Hyundai i20 team-mate Dani Sordo. Championship leader Tänak lies just 3.1sec further back after demoting Sébastien Loeb’s i20 by 0.6sec in the final speed test.

2019 WRC: Legend Loeb grabs late Friday lead in Spain as Tanak nears 2019 title


Estonian 21.7s back in fifth spot behind French nine-time WRC champion.

Nine-time world champion Sébastien Loeb snatched the lead of RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España late in Friday’s opening leg on a day when Ott Tänak took a massive step towards his maiden WRC title.

Loeb, the most successful driver in FIA World Rally Championship history, charged from third to first in the closing gravel road speed test to head a Hyundai i20 1-2-3. He led Thierry Neuville by 1.7sec with Dani Sordo a further 5.9sec adrift.

Championship leader Tänak ended fifth in his Toyota Yaris. His title hopes were boosted when closest rival Sébastien Ogier conceded almost four minutes when a hydraulic pipe came loose on his Citroën C3, leaving the Frenchman with no power steering.

2019 WRC: Ott Tanak out to make history in Spain with his first WRC crown


The Estonian can secure his maiden title with a win on the gravel and asphalt.

Victory in Spain this week would seal a maiden FIA World Rally Championship title for Ott Tänak – but he will not risk everything with the buffer of Australia’s final round to come.

The Toyota Yaris driver carries a 28-point lead into RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España. If he extends that to 30 during the gravel and asphalt encounter, the only mixed surface round in the series, the title is his.

The tussle for victory through the wet, muddy and foggy mid-Wales forests echoed the battle for the world crown between the trio, and Tänak had to work hard to gain vital seconds that extended his lead to 11.0sec with Sunday’s short finale remaining.

2019 WRC: Tanak lights up Rally GB after grabbing late lead


Ott Tänak snatched the lead of Wales Rally GB from team-mate Kris Meeke in the closing kilometres of Friday’s second leg after a thrilling fight in typically unpredictable weather.

The FIA World Rally Championship leader relegated his Toyota Yaris colleague in the darkness of the final Aberhirnant speed test to carry a 3.4sec advantage into Saturday’s marathon leg.

Meeke took the lead in last night’s curtain-raising test. Despite failing to win any of today’s nine gravel road special stages in north and mid-Wales, the Ulsterman fended off a string of challengers until the last test. His only issue was a spin after overshooting a hairpin.
