¡he Began the work! The Monte carlo Rally, and therefore the start of the season 2016 is very near, and manufacturers are started to accumulate miles in the face of this peculiar test. Lorenzo Bertelli and the team name of the M-Sport have already been able to test the Ford Fiesta RS WRC in stretches similar to those you will find in the test-held in the vicinity of the Gap. Also the pilots of Hyundai have worked with the i20 WRC 2016 preparing the Monte carlo Rally, although Hayden Paddon has only been able to rise to the World Rally Car of 2015.
