WATCH: Gravel to Tarmac

In the final instalment of the Tech Month videos, we turn the spotlight on the engineers and mechanics for one of the biggest challenges they face – converting a car from gravel to Tarmac spec.

Sometimes, preparing a car for gravel spec or Tarmac is not enough – on some occasions, such as RallyRACC Rally de Catalunya, the mechanic teams are required to do both, with the event beginning on gravel before switching to Tarmac, requiring an almost full rebuild of the cars. With the clock ticking, the pressure is on.

As part of Tech Month, presented by Wolf Lubricants, we will be showcasing videos throughout June that demonstrate different technical aspects of WRC cars - from tyre options through to changing an entire car overnight from gravel to Tarmac spec.
