Entering the third event of the 13-round Regular Season, there are familiar names at the top of the table, but a number of newcomers are piling on the pressure.
“The level of competition is higher than ever, the slightest mistake can make you lose several places,” confirmed two-time champion Nexl. “The gaps between the drivers for the top 10 are very tight.”
The third round of the championship starts off with a quick 2.58km sprint around Autódromo de León, where competition is expected to be incredibly close. It is on the weekend’s second stage where it is expected the champion will be found – the 18.37km romp around El Chocolate reverse.
For Nexl, Mexico offers an opportunity for redemption. “I had my worst result last year on Rally Mexico, so I intend to take my revenge this year with hopefully a victory.
“It's a difficult rally with rough and tricky stages.”
The challenge begins on Friday, with the quickest times expected to be set in the early hours of Monday morning with a cut-off time of 12:00 CET.
The eSports WRC Championship is open to all players of WRC 9.
