The 14th edition of the Rally
Mexico will be remembered by many details. However, the appointment in Guanajuato
it meant the debut of the new World Rally Car on gravel. A premiere that took
its positive part and also its critical moments. The cancellation of two flights
due to the delay in the transfer of the car after the super special in the Socket
of Mexico City, , the problems of overheating in the World Rally
Cars with high ambient temperatures and dust in suspension or the evil
positioning of hundreds of fans gave with situations little
desired in the third round of the WRC.
All in all, the image highlight of the Rally
Mexico was the work of Kris Meeke. The irish scored its first
victory of the season and the first win for the Citroën C3 WRC, but not the
reached a normal form. Although Meeke cemented his victory in the first
stage thanks to its favourable starting position and even got to hold the
attacks of Sébastien Ogier for the rest of the rally, in the end, the pilot of Citroën
saved his victory in the last stretch. After making a mistake and suffering an outlet
track Meeke managed to resolve the situation with remarkable expertise.
In the end, Kris Meeke had to
invent your own ‘Gymkhana’ to escape its own error. However, after
get out of track and hit even a car of an amateur, the northern irish are
the managed to dodge the dozens of cars parked in a clearing and
return to the stretch in time to cross the finish line with a time lost that we will not
prevented claim the victory. Without a doubt, a manoeuvre that is already part of the
history of the WRC and that has a lot to talk throughout the weekend.
Without a doubt, Kris Meeke wrote their own rules and recorridor.
