Mud forces cuts to Argentina marathon test
Road conditions force organisers to modify Saturday’s 56km stage
That’s the title that will be bestowed on one WRC pairing tomorrow (Thursday) when 11 of the FIA World Rally Championship’s leading drivers and co-drivers compete in the WRC TV Wheel Change Challenge ahead of Xion Rally Argentina (23 - 26 April).
All the championship’s top competitors, including Sébastien Ogier / Julien Ingrassia (Volkswagen Motorsport), Kris Meeke / Paul Nagle (Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team), Elfyn Evans / Dan Barritt (M-Sport World Rally Team) and Thierry Neuville / Nicolas Gilsoul (Hyundai Motorsport) will take part.
Crews will go up against the clock and each other in a race to see who can best handle the pressure of a timed wheel change on their rally cars in the fun event next to the rally’s service park in Villa Carlos Paz.
Changing wheels is an integral part of WRC, one of a very small number of motorsport disciplines where competitors must do so in the heat of competition.
We’ll bring you an update of the event on wrc.com tomorrow.
