Munchi's Ford World Rally Team
Luis Perez Companc: "I am very anxious about this rally because I know how important it is to represent Argentina and show ourselves driving a car of the highest level of the WRC in our home event. Last year we had such a warm reception from the fans cheering us on and it really did make a big difference for us. We had some problems on the event last year but the final day was very good and our times showed this. This will be my first event back in a car since GB last year so it will take a little bit to get used to competition again. We recently had a test at M-Sport which will help a lot as the conditions were dry and we managed to get quite a few kilometres done."
Federico Villagra: "Scoring drivers' points in Mexico is a huge boost for me coming into Rally Argentina which is based in my home town, Villa Carlos Paz. It is always good to have a winning car that is why we are confident of having a good rally in Argentina. The idea is to score points for the Drivers'and Manufacturers'Championships using the experience that we have on this rally, especially now we are ahead of Suzuki in the standings. This will be the first time on my home event in a world rally car and I have lots of friends and family in Villa Carlos Paz so I am very excited about starting the event."
